What is the GRC?
The Grimbergen Robot Crane is an automatic crane system for automation purposes in various steel processing industries. These standard cranes are modular built and configured to the client’s specific needs, to fit and operate fully automated in every production environment.
The GRC is developed for the logistic/handling process after processing of steel profiles, and will be integrated with your profile cutting line. For example: after cutting, the crane assures that the right profiles end up in the right cassettes for further processing. This automatic “Pick & Place” principle guarantees the most efficient logistic throughput of the cut products.
All profiles such as angles, bulbs, tees, beams, pipes etc. can be handled by the GRC, and there are also custom made possibilities for handling steel plates or other products. Based on your needs, the crane’s size will be identified, the amount of lifting trolleys (and their lifting capacity) will be determined, and the lifting tools such as magnets or vacuum will be chosen. This way you will always be able to compose the crane system you need. Details>
