Waste slag sorting installation

British Standards / Eurocode

Problem definition

Heilig had designed an industrial line with several heavy duty equipment for sorting waste slags. The structural supports for the equipment, belts and platform had to be optimized and documented in a design verification report in accordance with British Standards. A boundary condition was that the number of different section had to be minimized as well.

Contribution of Stemar Engineering

Stemar Engineering modelled the entire structure in Robot Structural Analyses and was thus able to optimise the structure as required. This program was also used for the verification of connection details.


Besides the requested design verification Stemar Engineering managed to reduce the structural steel weight with 10 tons.
