Comau + AIC Group (case114)
Advanced Robotic Tagging Solutions for the finishing area of the process line in the steel industry
The Robotic Tagging Application developed by AIC Group and COMAU is an advanced automation and mechatronic solution to tag bundles of profiles, sections, rebars and wire rod coils in long product rolling mills.
Thanks to 3D vision system and advanced image recognition algorithms, the robot of AIC identifies the most suitable position for the tag and applies it to the wire rod roll by using a metallic support created directly in the robotic island, without the use of a welding system.
