Copper producer increases efficiency with Kamag lift transporter
By Christian Shelton19 July 2017
German copper producer and recycler Aurubis is using a Kamag Transporttechnik pallet system and sliding device on an industrial lift transporter at its Pirdop plant in Bulgaria to assist with the maintenance and servicing of copper converters.
500 t copper converters are now transported to special service stations via Kamag’s Type 3800 industrial lift transporter
The copper converters weigh around 500 tonnes each and require regular maintenance. In the past Aurubis serviced the copper converters at their workstations, which led to long periods of downtime as well as loss of production, Kamag explained. Now, with Kamag’s new Type 3800 industrial lift transporter, the copper converters can be transported to special service stations. According to Kamag, this helps Aurubis streamline the servicing of the modules improving efficiency, safety, and working conditions for maintenance teams.
