The ILVA steel plant in Taranto is the biggest in Europe and among the largest in the world and it produces steel products for the domestic and international markets, in particular for the metal industry (automotive, appliances, pipes, shipbuilding).
LCS realized, in 2012, the coils warehouse automation of Ilva plant in Novi Ligure. The bridge cranes were realized by Demag and the coils (steel wrapped plates) are deposited and picked up automatically. The automation is complete from the shape control and input recognition, until the control of the overall dimensions for superimposed deposits.
Previously, in 2000, LCS realized the handling system automation with automatic bridge crane at the same plant in Novi Ligure (AL).
