Process solution for handling steel

Ordered in the morning, produced in the afternoon, loaded in the evening and shipped the next morning – deliveries of slit strip and material cut to order within 24 hours are just part of the normal daily routine for one of the largest European service centres for flat steel products. To achieve this, Becker Stahl-Service GmbH has invested in innovative production and storage equipment. The automated crane-served store for steel coils is a key element of the new production facility, where two Demag process cranes ensure that material is stored appropriately and staged in time for the production lines. The hardware and the warehouse management computer (WMC) is supplied by Demag Cranes & Components from a single source.
