AUTOMATIC DART LOADING SYSTEM
To cope with the demands of ever decreasing availability of labour and the need for increased safety standards, Monocon have designed and built fully automated dart loading systems for its range of slag control applicators.
These systems for which patent application has been made, utilize a robotic ‘pick and place’ technique to load a dart onto the beam from a cassette which will normally carry sixteen pre loaded darts.
In service the Automatic Dart Loading System has proved to be extremely reliable with very low maintenance. It reduces considerably the labour required during operation for dart assembly and loading. The darts can be assembled and loaded into the cassettes away from the area of the applicators and the cassettes only need to be put onto the automatic loading system a maximum of twice per 24 hours.
