With more than 150 years of material handling expertise, Morgan Engineering continues to transform the way its customers do business. By taking an integrated approach to manufacturing automation, the company is designing, manufacturing and commissioning complex material handling systems from the ground up. This is made possible through the work of its subsidiary company, Morgan Automation Systems Inc., which leverages the latest advancements in “Industry 4.0” manufacturing technologies to help customers improve safety, reduce costs and maximize production capacity.
Morgan’s automation expertise is clearly on display at Big River Steel in Osceola, Arkansas – where the company recently designed and commissioned a fully autonomous coil yard management system. From cranes and lifters to programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and human-machine interfaces (HMIs), the system manages a variety of complex components to deliver a simple, integrated operator experience.
