Tata Steel Kalinganagar starts robotic system for Wagon Tippler operation

Kalinganagar, Odisha

Tata Steel Kalinganagar, the state-of-the-art steel plant located in Jajpur District of Odisha, announced that it has introduced a new robotic system for its Wagon Tippler operation.

The tippling operations at the Raw-material Handling System of the steel plant involve critical activities like decoupling, coupling, rotation and CBC alignment of the wagon through manual intervention at the inhaul and outhaul sides.

During every cycle, after a Wagon tippling operation on the Tippler table, the empty wagons are coupled with the empty wagons in the outhaul area. For successful coupling of both Wagons, the alignment of the couplers is mandatory. It is now being done manually by a designated person under high-risk potential. To eliminate the man-machine interface while handling railway wagons, after a tippling operation during each cycle, a new system of “Robotics Operation” has been introduced for the Wagon Tippler.

T V Narendran, CEO & MD, Tata Steel Limited (TSL), inaugurated the new system. Under the new system of operation, the Wagon couplers at outhaul, before getting coupled, will be inspected through and aligned by a robotic system. It will eliminate the man-machine interface during each cycle of tippling, ensuring safety while contributing to enhanced productivity.

The new system has been installed in one of the Wagon Tipplers. It would be horizontally deployed in others, as well. The system is supplemented by a uniquely designed Smart Fencing System with Automated Gate Locking Facility for restricting unauthorised entry during equipment operation.

Several leaders from Tata Steel were also present for inaugurating the new robotic system for the Wagon Tippler operation.
