Chinese cement producer chooses thyssenkrupp

(Posted on 08/08/19)

The Chinese company Anhui Conch Cement is one of the world’s biggest cement producers.

China alone accounted for around 2.2 billion tons, or about 56%, of total world cement

production in 2018. Anhui Conch Cement recently placed an order with thyssenkrupp

Industrial Solutions to supply four new polab® laboratory automation systems, including for

the world’s two largest cement plants in Wuhu and Tongling in eastern China.

Pablo Hofelich, CEO of the Cement Technologies business unit of thyssenkrupp Industrial

Solutions: “More and more cement manufacturers are showing interest in our smart factory

and digitization solutions. Our automation systems make cement plants fit for the future. This

order with our long lasting client is an outstanding reference in the industry underlying the

global trend for efficiency improvements. Anhui Conch Cement operates more than 120

cement lines worldwide.”

 

The polab laboratory automation system uses industrial robots to ensure consistently high

product quality at minimum production cost. The system enables cement producers to respond

to growing quality and environmental requirements. The increasing use of substitute fuels and

raw materials in cement production makes it necessary to record and monitor quality data

promptly and intervene in the production process as necessary. The high degree of automation

ensures excellent reproducibility and avoids errors. With polab®, thyssenkrupp provides

customers with a high-end system for controlling and optimizing their processes and supports

them during installation, commissioning and operation.

The Industrial Solutions business area is a leading partner for the engineering, construction and service of

industrial plants and systems. Based on more than 200 years of experience we supply tailored, turnkey

plants and components for customers in the chemical, fertilizer, cement, mining and steel industries. As a

system partner to the automotive sector we develop highly specialized solutions to meet the individual

requirements of our customers. Some 16,000 employees around the world form a global network with a

technology portfolio that guarantees maximum productivity and cost-efficiency.
