Robotic tagging station for Acindar passed factory acceptance testing

In the last week, ArcelorMittal Acindar representatives visited our ATS Mechatronics branch (Udine, Italy) for running Factory Acceptance Tests on a brand-new bundles robotic tagging station that will be installed in the Argentina site.

A floor-mounted robot housed in a properly designed and manufactured industrial container that houses all the machinery in a climate-controlled and secure environment will be part of the solution that is specifically tailored to the needs of the customer.

All the tests were successfully completed in a dedicated space at our workshop along with the hardware and software infrastructure. The outcome reported a particularly positive result of the functionality of the safety controls, seamless tagging movements and advanced data collection & process monitoring algorithms.

Adopting this solution will significantly reduce risk factors: robot will handle the most time-consuming and dangerous manufacturing tasks while keeping workers safer and ensuring short cycle times in a small footprint.

This will be the first solution for the South American market, and it will be installed at the rolling mill's finishing end area. The robotic island will now be shipped and on-site commissioning will be implemented in the next few months.
