LiquiRob casting platform robot from Primetals Technologies brought into operation for Deutsche Edelstahlwerke
A LiquiRob casting platform robot from Primetals Technologies has been brought into operation in the
Siegen plant of Deutsche Edelstahlwerke GmbH. The system was installed in the fall of 2016. The
LiquiRob is used on the continuous billet caster, where it handles the automatic lancing of the ladles.
This had previously been performed manually. As liquid steel could occasionally escape out of control,
the use of the LiquiRob has made the casting work significantly safer. It is no longer necessary to enter
the hazardous area. Moreover, heavier and more efficient lances can now be used. This significantly
increases the success rate of the first lancing attempt.
