Plant and Location:

Steel Foundry, Power Turbine manufacturer, leading multinational corporation, Poland

Challenge:

Weight move steel structures of different shapes and sizes weighing up to 80 tons
Load Characteristics different steel loads, not homogenous, unstable, with differing centers of gravity
Space transport large heavy steel structures around the steel foundry on different routes, with tight corners to navigate

Working Environment:

Temperatures – Ambient – 10°C to +50°C
Temperatures – Load up to 250°C (max. temperature of the steel loads)
Air Quality dust particles, fibres, particulates, fumes, vapours
Weather Considerations heavy duty industrial carts must work both indoors and outdoors in all seasons and weather conditions
Flooring Conditions uneven, cracked and broken, old steel rails embedded in ground, both indoor and outdoor ground conditions

Solution:

Vehicle Battery-Powered Heavy Duty Platform Cart, electric motors
Mobility Rubber compound wheels, for imperfect terrain, with tight steering radius
Load Platform designed for semi-finished steel loads up to 80T, often concentrated on a 2m x 2m area (80 x 80 inch) with temperatures of up to 250°
Motors AC electric motors, no maintenance, no pollution
Operating Control The vehicle is driven using a radio-controlled unit with potentiometer. The operating software is Morello’s proprietary software used globally, developed and fine-tuned over many years.
