Innovative demoulding manipulator for railway sleepers in use at Cemex in Birmingham

Rekers GmbH Maschinen- und Anlagenbau, 48480 Spelle, Germany


The demoulding of the hardened railway sleepers for the entire production at the Saltley works of Cemex UK Railway Products to Cemex UK Rail Products has been taking place since the beginning of this year using special handling technology from Rekers. Following a demoulding manipulator that had already been supplied to Cemex in 2002, a second redesigned demoulding manipulator is now supporting Cemex in their drive to increase economy and efficiency. With its eight grippers, various lifting and turning axes, its accordion-like feeding movement and the robustness of the design and its size, the manipulator has a very impressive appearance. Within five minutes it can perform two demoulding processes each with eight railway sleepers and place them in stacks of two layers on a buffer trolley that is carried along for further transport by overhead crane (fig. 1).
