Short Description:

Identification and removal of short length bars (non-prime) are manual in nature, which is not 100% accurate. We seek an innovative solution to identify short length Rebars from the sorting bed.

Challenge Details

Identification and removal of short length bars (non-prime) in the New Bar Mill (NBM) is manual in nature, which is not 100% accurate. It is a tedious process and also a safety hazard as it is done manually. The short length bars, if missed by the operator ends up in reaching customers as part of prime length bundles. Short length bars are defined as any bar which is <12 meters (or any specified length) long.

Currently, the short length bar identification and removal is completely manual. The Operator at the station would walk to the sorting bed that has several Rebars and identifies the short length bars (<12m), picks them up from the bed and drags/throws them to an adjacent area meant for collecting scrap Rebars. This process of short length bar identification is not very safe, tedious and not accurate.

The NBM is keen to find an innovative solution to identify and remove the short length Rebars from the sorting bed.
