The advert on page 141 raises questions, which are quite justified since this innovative Austrian machine factory seems capable of many things. In fact, it’s about Mia, a rotary straightening machine to match the new mesh welding system for the Rapperstorfer Korbwand®. Mia is the first sub-system to form part of an ingenious interplay of machines and robots designed and constructed by Hubert Rapperstorfer and his team in Steinhaus bei Wels, Austria. Their company, Rapperstorfer Automation, aims at nothing less than to revolutionise the sector. As all revolutions have need of a name, Hubert Rapperstorfer has also come up with one. He has called his innovative components by the names of his family members. First comes the company’s youngest child, Mia, a 1.30 m tall rotor-type straightener. The machine will be the subject of this article, the first in a series of six introducing these innovations from Austria.
