A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11952644B2) discloses a method and system for operating a remelting plant. The method involves moving an electrode rod carriage and a furnace carriage along a guide column to position the electrode rod relative to the furnace for contacting an electrode. The guide column is articulatedly connected to a rotary column, allowing for tilting and rotation to center the electrode in the crucible. Additionally, a weighing device is incorporated to weigh at least the electrode, enhancing precision in the remelting process.

The remelting plant described in the patent comprises a furnace, an electrode rod, and a guide column for moving the electrode rod and furnace. The guide column is connected to a rotary column, enabling tilting and rotation for precise positioning. A weighing device is integrated into the guide column for accurate measurement during the remelting process. The system also includes a support column for stability and additional control over the movement of the rotary column. Overall, the patent introduces innovative features to enhance the efficiency and accuracy of remelting operations in industrial settings.
