ARMS® Systems

ARMS® Systems offer safety advantages that no other product on the market can currently match.

The Inductotherm ARMS® (Automated Robotic Melt Shop) System is a patented concept that uses a robot to perform the hazardous operations that would otherwise be handled by a furnace operator, allowing the melt deck worker to be relocated to the control room. This greatly improves worker’s safety, recruitment and retention.

Operations performed by the ARMS System robot include:

  • Checking the metal bath grounding
  • Dipping the thermocouple lance
  • Taking metal samples
  • Adding any required trim materials

In addition to performing many operational tasks, these automated systems are available to efficiently remove slag either using a slag rake or clamshell slagger to accommodate standard furnace designs or furnaces with the back tilt feature. This allows the melt deck operator to run melt shop operations away from the area closest to the furnace, significantly improving worker safety and comfort which can help with employee retention. Using the ARMS® Systems can greatly speed slag removal from the bath in larger furnaces.
