Tata Steel Meramandali in Dhenkanal district of Odisha has introduced model wagon tippler with the use of state-of-the-art robots at its Raw Material Handling Systems operations on 23 November 2022 to eliminate man-machine interface during the unloading of wagons. With this new system, the entire unloading and tippling operations have now been automated. This has eliminated the human-machine interface hence ensuring safety and contributing to enhanced productivity.The rake tippling operations at RMHS of the steel plant involve critical activities that include decoupling, rotation, alignment and coupling of the wagons at both the inhaul and outhaul side. This is followed by wagon cleaning in the end. The newly installed systems include automatic drop gates with laser curtains, robotic decoupling and coupling operation, smart access control inside tippler complex, wagon cleaning system and automatic side arm charger operation resulting in significant reduction of high risk activities. This system is also supplemented by a uniquely designed smart fencing system with automated gate locking facility for restricting unauthorised entry during equipment operation.
