At the present time a number of laboratories in the European steel industry have replaced classical chemical methods with new equipment, which has resulted in the rationalization of work as well as having considerable economic impact. Over a period of time, various attempts to make use of different partial approaches such as laboratory robots or partly automated operations systems did not produce the desired results. This situation motivated the ambition to create a fully automated complex unit which would fulfill multiple analytical requirements and would even go beyond certain requirements by offering the possibility of using two Perl'X, or of loading a second analytical machine (eg an emission spectrometer). The opening out of usage of the system allows it to be adapted to users' requirements, thus giving it a great deal of flexibility. This is made possible by the speed of the transfer system and the extensiveness of the surface which can be covered. The full ensemble considered within the scope of this evaluation breaks down into three distinct parts: equipment, software and performances.
