Robots are one of the most widely used systems for handling cereals in flat-bottomed warehouses, allowing maximum capacity storage (the warehouse’s entire geometric volume) and total automatic emptying at very high flow rates. When emptying is complete, the warehouse’s cubic storage volume is fully freed up and can be used for other purposes.

The robot is controlled by means of an electrical panel which automatically executes loading and discharge cycles while carrying out a series of necessary safety controls. Metalmont RO Series robots are suitable for conveying granular materials, particularly cereals, seeds and their derivatives.

In designing these products, Metalmont has scrupulously applied the latest and most stringent standards with regard to operator safety, reliability in the most arduous working conditions and construction quality, with the aim of reducing energy consumption and maintenance costs. Metalmont RO Series robots are also available on request with ATEX 22 certification. The standard operating temperature range is 0 to 40 °C.

Information on our past installations and customer portfolio is available on request.


The range of Metalmont RO Series robots comprises 3 models, differentiated by their typical load capacity. The typical nominal load capacity is calculated based on wheat with volumetric mass 0.78 t/m3, moisture content 16%, max. impurity 2%.

With reference to the various materials, the indicative hourly load capacity in ton/h is:
Model Grain Soy Sunflower Paddy Bran Derivatives Flour
t/m3 0,78 0,70 0,40 0,60 0,25 0,35 0,50
RO 060 60 60 30 50 20 30 40
RO 100 120 120 60 95 40 60 80
RO 200 200 200 110 160 60 80 120
Metalmont RO Series robots can be customised on request:
  • Hot dip galvanised or powder coated frame, also suitable for food grade applications
  • Stainless steel frame


Metalmont RO Series robots are available with a series of accessories that facilitate their effective installation in the plant (runways, conduits, various sensors).

Metal joinery components: in addition to specific accessories for the correct installation of its machines, Metalmont is also a long-standing supplier of more general but equally useful plant access and structural solutions such as staircases, rest platforms, inspection platforms, walkways, frameworks and bracketing of all kinds, from simple brackets to backstays for supporting long sections of piping, shelves and stands.
