Aluminium profiles for e-mobility in highest quality
Hammerer Aluminium Industries (HAI) is investing in a high-end production line at its Austrian site in Ranshofen. The aim is to produce aluminium profiles of the highest quality for the future topic of e-mobility. With an automatic crane and a fully automated buffer store, the SPS Group and Vollert ensure damage-free material flow between the existing and extended production lines. From planning to commissioning, the intralogistics specialists needed only 12 months.
High speed production buffer for 3,000 tons of steel wire coils
Vollert erected for Saarstahl AG a new fully automatic high-bay warehouse for up to 665 steel wire coils at the Neunkirchen plant. In addition to the high cycle time of just 190 seconds per double cycle, the heavy-duty engineers also realized the handling of bundles weighing up to 4.5 tons directly from the stacker crane to the lift truck and on to the truck loading.
Neuman Aluminum modernized their material flows in the extrusion plant in Marktl, Austria, during the Christmas holidays. At the core is a new automatic crane system by Vollert with 21 interchangeable cycles for loads of up to 3 tons. It replaces two existing transport cranes and is one of the fastest automatic cranes ever used in the extrusion industry.
TRIMET Aluminium SE uses a new and so far unique in the world technique for the cooling of green anodes in its Hamburg factory: The pilot plant reduces the resource usage and dispenses with active cooling by water. Instead TRIMET relies on cooling by natural convection with outside air – and this with success.
Precise heavy-load crane systems for ingots and coils, etc.
Whether hot, sensitive, uneven or weighing several tonnes - the automatic cranes in the new mega-rolling plants of the Zhongwang Group in Tianjin now move slabs and coils securely and around four times as fast as conventional systems. The technology, control and stores management for this has all come from the intralogistics experts Vollert in the south of Germany.
High-bay and automated intralogistics system speeds up production for Aleris
Aleris International, Inc. plans to boost production capacity in Duffel, Belgium with a new Sexto mill. To ensure smooth operation, Vollert Anlagenbau from Weinsberg will provide a fully-automated intralogistics system with high-bay warehouse. Up to 32 coils with a maximum unit weight of 25 tons are moved in and out of the warehouse each hour.
Fully automatic coil transport in Hydro aluminium mill
Hydro Aluminium Rolled Products GmbH has commissioned Vollert Anlagenbau to modernise its existing plant in Grevenbroich by designing an end-to-end intralogistics system that automatically loads and unloads lorries, stores up to 4,000 tons of aluminium coil, and uses trolleys with inductive power transfer.
Automatic long items and small parts storage for aluminum profile systems
heroal's new high-bay warehouse has the capacity for 10,000 long items and 7,000 euro pallets. A centrally controlled intralogistics system from Vollert ensures a smooth material flow between infeed and outfeed.
Vollert Anlagenbau develops a 260-ton automatic crane for Vallourec & Mannesmann Tubes
A 260-ton automatic crane is the latest highlight in Vollert's intralogistics programme for heavy-duty applications. Capable of travelling up to 2.7 m/s and featuring a 44-m span width, the crane has a 35-ton payload and will be used to transport heavy objects on site at the customer's steel tube plant in Düsseldorf-Rath. The world's market leader manufacturers steel tubes for applications in oil and gas fields, power plants, and the chemical and petrochemical industry.
Earthquake-resistant: New high-bay warehouse from Xiashun holds 800 aluminium coils
Vollert Anlagenbau GmbH from Weinsberg, Germany, is developing an entire intralogistic system with a fully automated high-bay warehouse for Asia’s leading aluminium foil manufacturer. The contract from China, with a total volume of approximately thirteen million Euro, is no easy task: The warehouse, which has a capacity of around 14,000 tons, is located in one of the most dangerous earthquake regions in the world and must withstand seismic shocks which measure up to 5 and 6 on the Richter scale. With the new production plant, Xiashun is in a position to manufacture litho material of the highest quality.
When others are running out of steam, the engineers at Vollert Anlagenbau are just getting into their stride, specialising in intralogistics systems for heavy goods – especially for the metalworking industry. For the aluminium extrusion works of apt Hiller for example, Vollert developed a fully automated intralogistics system which facilitates an end-to-end material flow from the extrusion works to the processing department and then on to the downstream anodising plant and newly constructed shipping warehouse. Major parts of the new system were installed and existing systems modernised and integrated while production was ongoing. As well as a higher handling capacity, the virtual warehouse of the transport control system allows optimum utilisation of the space offered by in-process stores, even with different sizes of transport basket.
