RHI Magnesita has achieved a significant milestone by securing a landmark contract to introduce robotics technology in the Indian steel industry. This project includes the latest generation SX3 slide gate, EMLI LadleSlag sensors as well as robotic cells on the CCM for ladle shroud handling and tundish sampling and probing as part of a long-term contract with JSW Vijayanagar Metallics Ltd. This achievement not only marks the first robotics installation in an Indian steel plant but also underscores RHI Magnesita's commitment to innovation and technological leadership.

Customer Confidence

To build customer confidence, RHI Magnesita invited key personnel to visit a European steel plant where the robotics system was operational. This visit, facilitated by RHI Magnesita's top officials, allowed the customer officials to see the technology in action and verify the company's claims. This hands-on experience built significant customer confidence and demonstrated the practical benefits of RHI Magnesita's solutions.

Beyond the Flow Control order, we have also secured additional contracts and introduced, for the first time in India, innovative digitalization and automation projects for ladle lining - a Scissor Table for Ladle Lining and the VISIR LadleSafe for Ladle Monitoring System.
