Deutsche Edelstahlwerke orders LiquiRob casting platform robot from Siemens


Casting platform robot increases work safety
LiquiRob is used to fire the ladles

Deutsche Edelstahlwerke GmbH has given Siemens Metals Technologies an order to supply a LiquiRob casting platform robot for its Siegen, Germany plant. The LiquiRob will be installed on the continuous billet caster, and in future will handle the firing of the ladles. Until now this has been performed manually. As liquid steel can occasionally escape uncontrolled, the use of the LiquiRob will make casting operations significantly safer, since it will no longer be necessary to enter this hazardous area.
