AUMUND Rotary Discharge Machine replaces 40-year-old predecessor from LOUISE at voestalpine Stahl GmbH

In the sintering plant of voestalpine Stahl GmbH in Linz, Austria, raw materials have been extracted with the aid of rotary discharge machines for more than 40 years. Four LOUISE machines were supplied back then, and AUMUND Fördertechnik GmbH is currently replacing the first of them with a new AUMUND rotary discharge machine type LOUISE.

“Repeat orders like this are a great testament to the durability of our machines,” says Dr Rainer Bertling, Sales Director of the Metallurgy Division of AUMUND Fördertechnik in Rheinberg.

The new rotary discharge machine to be supplied by AUMUND is a BEW-FLS type LOUISE, the compact model for height restricted environments. It is equipped with a slewing discharge arm and has an extraction capacity of 1500 t/h. The slewing arm permits the machine to travel to various storage areas between discharge functions.

A wholly-owned subsidiary of voestalpine AG, voestalpine Stahl GmbH is the principal entity in the steel division and the largest of the four divisions. voestalpine Stahl GmbH is one of the leading steel producers in Europe. Its fully integrated steel mill in Linz has every stage of the process on one site, from the coking and sintering plants to the blast furnace, steel plant, hot-rolling and cold-rolling mills as well as galvanising and strip coating.
