Field trip to Infrabuild’s Newcastle Rod Mill

POSTED: 10 May, 2023

Our UTS Robotics Institute researchers (Program Lead, Teresa Vidal Calleja, Postdoc, Fouad (Fred) Sukkar and PhD Researcher, Nadimul Haque) have been on a field trip to Infrabuild’s Newcastle Rod Mill! They were joined by InfraBuild‘s Manufacturing Systems Engineer, Ciaran Moloney and our lead from InfraBuild, Digital Transformation Manager, Andrew Thomas.

During yesterday’s site visit, they got to see the Contistretch in action and collected some footage of the operators raking coils. The Contistretch plant improves Dbar from rod mill coils into compact spools used by InfraBuild’s customers.

Thanks for having on-site, InfraBuild. We are looking forward to sharing more as work progresses.
