The hot billets tagging robotic cell, PolyTAG BLE, is a smart robotic cell for tagging hot billets and blooms. The system is able to determine the position of the product using a 3D machine vision system and apply the tag with the tracking information on it. The use of low cost consumables and pre-cutted tag dramatically reduce the brake even time and deeply improve the overall reliability with unbeated performances.
The 3D machine vision system, PolySHAPE, is able to create a digital twin of the shape and temperature of the product scanned, perform dimensional checks and generate alarm and warning based on the data acquired. The system can feed also machine learning algorithms to improve the continuous casting productivity.
