Sistem Teknik builds scrap charging cars for aluminium melting furnaces in order to optimize the aluminium recycling and production processes. With an innovative camera system, these charging cars use machine learning and IoT solutions to provide safe and efficient operations in casthouses. As a result of the wireless communication system with furnaces, the furnace door can be opened and closed over the car.
The car can charge 2 to 20 tons of scrap, ingot bundles or T-bars due to their heavy construction structure and are available with diesel or electric motor-driven options. It can be designed in two distinct types according to the following purposes:
1- charging scrap to the melting furnace ramp (charging table is retracted – usually used in multi-chamber melting furnaces),
2- charging scrap into the melting furnace’s metal bath through the pusher plate.
There are several features that make the charging car designs user-friendly such as the option of exchangeable charging boxes. In addition, the trolley hood that is made upon request prevents the release of gases from the melting furnace door into the foundry atmosphere during loading.
