Schwerstarbeiter Verladegarnituren: Optimale und sichere Verladung von Schüttgütern

Schüttgüter werden heute in nahezu allen Industriebereichen verwendet: Als Rohmaterial, das während der Produktion zu Zwischen- und Endprodukte verarbeitet wird, oder als Endprodukt selbst. Und das je nach Produktionsumfang in unglaublich großen Mengen – täglich. Um Produktions- bzw. Lieferengpässe zu vermeiden, müssen die Materialien in ausreichender Menge beschafft, bevorratet, und der Produktion oder Distribution zugeführt werden. In Zeiten von Global Procurement und Supply-Chain-Management werden Schüttgüter in Massen auf Schiffe, Bahnwaggons oder Fahrzeuge verladen und weltweit auf verschiedenen Transportwegen bewegt. Und auch hier gilt: Zeit ist Geld. Insbesondere bei großen Schüttgut-Umschlagsorten wie See- und Binnenhäfen oder Abfertigungsbereiche großer Produktionsbetriebe gleichen die Be- und Entladeprozesse einem Uhrwerk – die Abläufe werden oft minuziös geplant und gesteuert, was die Prozesse zwar effizient und wirtschaftlich, aber sehr störungsanfällig macht.

This was a very interesting and informative visit.

Overnight we stayed at the old German city Burghausen, separated from Austria by the river Salzach. Burghausen Castle rests along a ridgeline, and is the longest castle in Europe.

Here are a few shots of this city which is certainly worth visiting:

The castle (which was founded before 1025) was transferred to the Wittelsbachs after the death of the last count of Burghausen, Gebhard II, in 1168. In 1180 they were appointed dukes of Bavaria and the castle was extended under Duke Otto I of Wittelsbach.

The 800 year old monastery church in Raitenhaslach is well worth visiting. Built on a Roman core, the grandiose, baroque building with its rococo features makes a stunning impression. In 1806 the former monastery church became the parish church. The interior of the church has always been renovated according to the current art style. The altars, frescoes, and the cloister with the grave stones are particularly impressive.

Thanks to the GEROLDINGER Team for the time they spent with us. Please check out the following information:

Geroldinger: OSZILLOMAT – the effective and efficient discharging system

Description:
The Geroldinger OSZILLOMAT system consists of a controllable, oscillating beam discharger, whereby mass-flow (all particles in motion) is triggered. Due to the oscillating movements of the beams in combination with a sophisticated control system even the difficult material, even in small quantities from a few kilograms, can be gently loosened and precisely metered.
