Hardly any material has influenced world economic development to such an extent as steel. It not only plays an important role in industry but also in our everyday life
Ergolines has developed a new system (UT-MAP) based on contactless ultrasonic technology for real time temperature detection in curved and flat copper moulds. This enables key information on initial solidification to be obtained.
In the future, there will be a growing demand for green steel produced using renewable energy. This demand will impact both crude steel production and downstream processes, such as heat treatment.
Sarclad launches Rolltex EDT Multi-Servo Array as demand increases for highest quality of textured rolls
Today’s leading steel and aluminum rolling mills need to consistently produce high quality textured strip, to satisfy increasing demand from market sectors such as automotive, white goods and packaging.
Laser diameter gauges have already been in use in long products rolling mills for more than 40 years. About 20 years ago, laser profile gauges also became available, to determine even more information about the shape of the rolled material.
AIC Group has developed an ambitious mechanical system, AIC TrimBot, using both vision technology and industrial robotics, including mechanical parts, 3D vision systems, a high level of automation and artificial intelligence
Reducing CO2 emissions with the aid of machine learning: digital solutions to enable climate neutral steel production
Whether in politics, civil society or business, there is agreement that industry must become greener, yet the steel industry in particular is faced with a mammoth task.
Breakthrough in Detection and classification of Surface Inspection Systems (SIAS®) via deep learning
Surface inspection has been part of the high technology landscape of the steel industry for three decades. Over this period of time, real time defect detection, with its need for massive data processing, has required significant research.
