Customized Automated Transport System for Aluminium Slabs



Automated high-tech transport system with on-line weighting and marking 

Transport system consists out of 5 integrated modules, where at the beginning the slab is being put into vertical position, settled and transported to next step, where the weighting and marking process takes place. After that the slab is transported to final stage, where it is ready waiting for forklift manipulation.

Proposed solution has taken into account all requirements about spatial restrictions, workplace safety, transport optimization, product marking and final weighing of aluminum slabs, in order to avoid mistakes, increase reliability of machine data collection and workplace safety.

We offered a turnkey solution, from conceptual design to customized engineering and on-site installation. Result of project preparation stage were important modifications, such as an automated on-line weighing and marking system, integrated with customers ERP for data exchange, such es charge number, total weight and marking requirements.
