What are the challenges in slab storage?
What makes storage operations in the slab yard particularly challenging is the fact that a great many parameters need to be observed when stacking slabs. TWMS/metals assigns the storage positions with a view to logistical requirements in order to avoid frequent shifting.
Additionally, it is crucial that the slabs are stacked on one another with utmost precision. Therefore, a key feature of TWMS/metals is its ability to trace the crane positions extremely accurately.
In cases where the standard tracing function is not sufficient - for example, when handling narrow slabs or billets - we use additional information such as the surface profile of the slab stack
