Remote digitalization of the stand drives at Capitol Steel in the Philippines. Real value through virtual implementation.


Overcoming the existing global constraints, the AIC team continues to search for flexible solutions to meet the needs of the customers around the world. As a result, Capitol Steel contracted AIC to update and digitalize the existing stand drives in the Philippines from our workshop in Torbole Casaglia (BS), Italy.

The scope of supply includes:

• Engineering & electrical drawings for digitalization of the drives
• Digitalization kit for existing stand drives
• ABB components, including a communication card to connect to the PLC and the encoder card
• Remote assistance and support

Working closely online through video communication platforms and conference calls, this is an ongoing project. At the present time, two out of ten stand drives have been successfully commissioned by the customer with the remote support and assistance of AIC. The uniqueness of this solution allows the customer to increase production efficiency and achieve previously defined goals while reducing project costs.
