SisAl Pilot tests campaign: the robot

01 Jun 2022

At Elkem’s pilot site in Kristiansand, an IRB 7600-500/2,55 Industrial Robot is used for handling the moulds with hot metal. The robot carefully moves the moulds around, leaving empty moulds below the furnace for further tapping. The robot can also empty the moulds when they are sufficiently cooled down.
