Our client has an Aluminium Rolling Mill in Oman, designed to process around half a million tonnes of rolled aluminium product a year.
Due to the complex distribution path options once the coils are rolled, the mill required a system capable of critical path analysis to organise and distribute the coils accurately through the most efficient route possible.
SCX created a complex Crane Management System (CMS), enabling the two 25-tonne main storage area cranes to automatically distribute hot coils between numerous locations around the mill, interfacing with various production lines and processes.
Our CMS analyses data from both cranes to safely and accurately optimise the route that they should take through the plant. This ensures that each coil arrives in the right place, in the right condition, exactly when they are required.
