Robotics [NRAG]

National Robotics & Automation Group [NRAG]

The National Robotics and Automation Group (NRAG) has been established as a collaboration of leading Southern Sydney based industrial automation, robotics and technology companies who are seeking to work collectively with ANSTO and key international partners to develop robotic and automated systems for the use in nuclear and radioactive environments.  Our key goal is to provide innovative technologies and solutions to problems faced by ANSTO but which also have global market appeal within the nuclear and radio-pharma industry.  NRAG’s aims to combine the industry knowledge of its member companies with ANSTO’s nuclear & radio-pharma experience to become a key part of ANSTO’s growing Technology Precinct.
The participants include Australis Engineering, Britton Maritime, Chess Industries, Breseight Engineering, Jar-aerospace, Yokogawa, ShireBiz, and Southern Strength.
The group has been meeting since May2018 to determine projects in which they could collaborate with ANSTO.  Recently, following a presentation from ANSTO staff, they have focussed on projects that could assist ANSTO in automating present and future facilities.
NRAG members have recently [Mar/Apr 2019] had site visits to ANSTO’s radiopharmaceutical facility and the OPAL reactor.
