Metal, iron and steel industries
We know the conditions that prevail inside a metallurgical plant: The materials, the hydraulics, the cables, and the electronic systems in our machines are optimally adapted to the extreme ambient temperatures.
Gunning machines are used to repair refractory lining in the iron and steel industry. The spraying arm’s linear and rotary movements combine to ensure that TML’s telescopic boom technology can cope with work on what are mostly arched surfaces inside converters. When carrying out repairs on the refractory materials in the hot converter, the SHOOTER, a spray manipulator with telescoping and rotating spraying arm, places the refractory materials accurately on the spot where the brick lining needs repair.
The radio controls ensure that the operator is always able to work at a safe distance.
A lance stroke of up to 2 x 4,000 mm means that the SHOOTER is also suitable for working on unusually large converters.
The unformed materials are fed into the SHOOTER via a pressurised conveyor, which TML includes in its solutions package.
