One of the world’s biggest cement producers chooses laboratory automation from thyssenkrupp

The Chinese company Anhui Conch Cement is one of the world’s biggest cement producers. China alone accounted for around 2.2 billion t, or about 56 %, of total world cement production in 2018. Anhui Conch Cement recently placed an order with thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions to supply four new polab® laboratory automation systems, including for the world’s two largest cement plants in Wuhu and Tongling in eastern China.

Pablo Hofelich, CEO of the Cement Technologies business unit of thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions: “More and more cement manufacturers are showing interest in our smart factory and digitization solutions. Our automation systems make cement plants fit for the future. This order with our long lasting client is an outstanding reference in the industry underlying the global trend for efficiency improvements. Anhui Conch Cement operates more than 120 cement lines worldwide.”

The polab laboratory automation system uses industrial robots to ensure consistently high product quality at minimum production cost. The system enables cement producers to respond to growing quality and environmental requirements. The increasing use of substitute fuels and raw materials in cement production makes it necessary to record and monitor quality data promptly and intervene in the production process as necessary. The high degree of automation ensures excellent reproducibility and avoids errors. With polab, thyssenkrupp provides customers with a high-end system for controlling and optimizing their processes and supports them during installation, commissioning and operation.
