Qasthouse is built to answer the biggest questions of the primary metals industry.
Leading smelters worldwide are looking towards further automation as a value driver. Automation lowers operational expenses, streamlines operations and gives the certainty that allows to focus on core tasks. In the last years, we have seen a rapid increase in the interest for automation initiatives. Starting with auxiliary processes, automation has found its way more and more into the core processes in the potrooms and casthouses of primary aluminium producers. Successful examples are of course automated machines (e.g. skimming machines), but also automated guided vehicles (e.g. crucible transport and anode transport). Besides being a major value driver, automation is also a major challenge. To stay competitive it is not enough to have good ideas. To capture value we need to bring it all together. This is where flawless execution and seamless integration are key. We are here to guarantee that that happens successfully.
