Since 2021, ek robotics has been revolutionizing RHI Magnesita's production site in Radenthein, Austria, with twelve custom-made automated guided vehicles. Three transport robots from the CUSTOM MOVE series are used to transport heavy loads. With an inclinable and powerful mast, the transport robots are capable of transporting loads of up to 16 tons. Their dimensions are correspondingly large: Measuring over 4.3 meters long and 3 meters wide, the vehicles weigh over 10 tons. They transport the refractory products through narrow corridors, over rails and set them down at the tunnel kiln with millimeter precision.
The result: increased safety, sustainably efficient material flow and minimized downtimes in the plant.
