Since 1990, Kautenburger GmbH (Germany) has been setting standards in the development of innovative products and systems in the field of sophisticated industrial automation. Among their customers is Refractarios Kelsen S.A. (Spain), a producer of refractory components and solutions that include fire clay bricks, fireproof bricks used for lining furnaces.
In the production process, these bricks are stacked onto wagons, which transport them into an oven for hardening. Such bricks can come in well over 100 different shapes and sizes. In addition, in order to optimize the hardening process, they must be stacked in very specific patterns.
