System includes a 30,000 lbs capacity, 4-post VRC designed to raise a 24,000 lbs scrap charge bucket, mounted on a transfer car, to an elevated runway track. Charge bucket is then moved horizontally on runway track to any one of three induction melting furnaces. Scrap load is then automatically discharged into a furnace charge car. After load is discharged, charge bucket is returned to scrap area for reloading. System is operational 16 hours per day. During operation, a scrap load is lifted and moved every six minutes.
