Case Studies

1) Handling of Tiles (pdf)

At its Autenried II plant near Günzburg, Germany, CREATON was looking to modernize the production line for its "MAGNUM" series of mega-sized tiles. This line can produce up to 60 tonnes of clay roof tiles per minute, and is used to manufacture pantiles and fitting elements. Previously this area involved manual operations. At that time each operator had to lift roof tiles weighing a total of 1.5 tonnes per day. This task was now to be automated.
