20 September – Just like at Elma also pipeline at ELRO, our Romanian sister company is well-filled! Commissioned by Van Riet Material Handling Systems (Houten, Netherlands) ELRO is conducting panel building and installation works for projects all over Europe. The optimal use of ELRO’s capacity is in accordance to the ambitious growth plans announced earlier this year.
At this moment about twenty ELRO engineers are building and installing control panels for three automated transport, order picking and sorting systems in the Netherlands, Austria and Russia. In Honselersdijk (Netherlands) this is the case for a wholesaler for flowers. In Linz, Austria, mail-order company DHL is implementing several Van Riet sorting lines. In Moscow, Russia, it is the big electronics company Toshiba ordering Van Riet systems.
The assembly and installation of the control cabinets is done by ELRO, under supervision of Elma. Elma is also responsible for project management. Van Riet is the designer of the control cabinets. The control systems (plc’s) are based upon Siemens technology. E-motors and drives are from SEW.
