LiquiRob casting platform robot from Primetals Technologies brought into operation for Deutsche Edelstahlwerke

Print

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.
