Automated Robotic Systems
While it is impossible to fully remove the risks associated with melting metal, it is possible to make melt shops a safer workplace. It requires management to make safety a key corporate value and then to communicate that to the foundry workers by selecting the safest available equipment and by assuring that workers are instructed in its proper use. By using automated equipment whenever possible, melt shops are better able to keep personnel away from molten metal. Remote furnace charging, operating and pouring systems are all available for purchase today as well as the patented Inductotherm ARMS® (Automated Robotic Melt Shop) System.
