AL-Industrie developed an innovating concept allowing the automatic unloading of boats.
This quite new system will be installed for the first time in a barge which transports some wood in Chile.
The company of Chantelle which produces protective covers and conveyors finalized an innovating concept allowing the automatic unloading of boats.
Created in 2003, AL Industrie is specialized in the design and the manufacturing of equipments for the protection of machine tools, fairing, as well as evacuation and valuation of shavings. Products are conceived to be installed on all the types of machine tools, whatever the manufacturer, the brand or the reference. So AL Industrie works with major companies of the industry in sectors as the automobile, the railroad, the aeronautics or still the sea transport.
” Beyond our technical know-how, we propose to our customers an initiative favoring the service and the advice. Our objective is to increase their productivity by proposing the solution the most adapted to their problems of protection and conveying. ” Specifies Arthur VERNIER, Managing director of the company.
AL-Industrie is now present on the European market as a whole and has won a South American market in the field of inland waterway transport.
“In this difficult economic context, we decided to position our know-how and our products in other markets, such as the wood industry. Our concepts considered like standard in the machine tool environment appeared very innovative in these new markets. Thus, AL Industrie has been able to increase its production volumes, in a situation that is uncertain, “explains Arthur VERNIER.
Then, the company developed an innovative concept allowing the automatic unloading of boats. This new system will be installed for the first time in a barge that transports wood to Chile.
A first equipment will be delivered at the end of the year to the Chilean customers and a second order is in progress for the month of March.
“Our willingness and ability to adapt, as well as the cohesion of our team, have made it possible to propose an innovative technical solution to an unprecedented customer problem. Beyond our own structure, we have opted for and invested in the strength of the Allier department and the Auvergne region. 80% of our purchases and partners have been qualified locally and have all participated actively in the development of this project which finally sees the day “indicates Arthur VERNIER.
“Until then, the boats were unloaded by means of cranes or backhoes. With this system, a load of 4000 m3 can be emptied automatically in less than two hours, which is considerable. Our design office has worked for more than 2 years in the development of this new product, which promises to be very promising at national and international level ”
