The plant, located in Calcinate (BG), is designed to the production of concrete sleepers for the most important Italian players in the railway sector.

The plant, already characterized by a high level of automation, has been recently equipped with an innovative automatic bottom heading machine.

The bottom heading machine is fully automated, managed by a modern dedicated PLC and a supervision system, configured for a remote assistance, in line with the directives dictated by Indutry 4.0.

The machine, designed according to the machinery directive 2006/42 / ce, is composed of:

  • automatic wire loader;
  • hydraulic bearing heads with hydraulic accumulator and locking jaws;
  • automatic palletizer.
The bottom heading machine, integrated in the line, optimizes the entire production process of WEGH Group plant in Calcinate (BG).
