ACERINOX
Palmones Los Barrios, Cadiz
THE HEADQUARTERS IN CADIZ ENTRUSTS OPPENT FOR THE CREATION OF A CUTTING-EDGE SYSTEM FOR THE AUTOMATIC TRANSPORT OF SPECIMENS.

Founded in 1970, the Group Acerinox is the world’s largest producer of stainless steel, with a crude steel capacity of 3,5 million tons. The production includes hot-rolled and cold-rolled products, both long and flat. Thanks to an extensive sales network, the Acerinox Group is now actively present in over 80 countries. The system created by Oppent for the plant of Los Barrios Palmones allows connection between the production area and the laboratory for the samples analysis: the cast iron samples taken from the casting, when wet and cooled, are sent from the blast furnace to the laboratory to verify compliance.
The transport of materials between different areas is rapidly carried out without staff intervention, ensuring employees’ complete safety and high levels of efficiency: the special aluminum carriers run the entire pipeline in about 20 seconds.
