"SmartMelt is operating at our 30 tonnes furnace in Chippis, Switzerland, since February 2019, running very smoothly, bringing already satisfaction to the operators and supervisors. The new approach in furnace operation is helping us to achieve safer loading practices, energy consumption reduction and overall more efficient melting cycles. We are eager to implement it in other casthouses of the group!"
