Overview

Corematic engineering has been engaged to provide a solution to an aluminium smelter in order to reduce the risk of lifting hot metal. When engaging the bridle with the ladle, the non-invasive system designed to provide a constant and reliable indication that the ladle is fully engaged prior to lifting.

 

Outcome

  • Non-invasive solution
  • Designed for pot line crane or cast house crane
  • Off the shelf parts
  • Plug and play

 

Benefit

  • Considerably reduce the risk of dropping the ladle
  • Provide trust signal to the operator
  • Low cost

Smart Alert

Overview

Corematic Engineering has been engaged to review an existing proximity warning system designed by the customers. During the design review, the team has suggested an alternative technology that will divide the planned CAPEX by four. The system uses fewer components and a more affordable technology without compromising with the original requirements. In fact, the solution exceeds the client specification. Our system has been designed for the harsh pot line environment and is integrated into the crane HMI.

 

Outcome

  • 40m detection range
  • Customisable detections zone
  • 2-way detection
  • Lighting, dust, fume independent
  • Compact

 

Benefit

  • CAPEX considerably reduced thanks to the consulting phase
  • Scalable solution
  • Off the shelves parts and components
  • Risk of collision reduce for a safer workplace
