STAP – Tap hole emergency opening at Acciaierie Bertoli Safau

8 February 2019

Acciaierie Bertoli Safau, a leading European manufacturer of steel used in specialised engineering applications, has awarded MORE the order for the STAP multi-axis equipment that automatically opens the tap hole in the event of clogging by an oxygen lance in the electric arc furnace.
The STAP device is not used regularly in each cycle, but only when required. Nevertheless, it can prevent long delays that can accumulate in several melt shops due to the time required for operators to repair the occurrence of the non-spontaneous opening.
The primary features of the equipment are: highly versatile movement with 4 independent axes, highly precise remote control and an arm length of up to 6 meters.
The new equipment is scheduled to be in operation by the third quarter of 2019.
