Italian Steelmaker Installs Automated Tagging System

5/4/2020 - Italy’s Automazioni Industriali Capitanio (AIC) has wrapped up installation of a new bundle tagging system for rebar maker Ferriera Valsabbia. 

In a statement, AIC said the system includes the tagging robot and equipment to pin tags to the bundles; a dual-camera, 3D-vision sensor; and two QR code readers. 

“The improved data tracking system increases the efficiency of the process, reduces downtimes and optimizes resources,” the company said. “The robotic tagging application increases the safety level of operators who were previously in a dangerous position next to the crane.”
