SST Casting AI enables steelmakers to avoid casting defects from the outset. Defect rates, downgrading rates, reallocation rates are reduced by 50% and more.
Typical casting defects (slivers, cracks, etc.) are reduced permanently without installation of new equipment. Downgrading of blooms, billets, rolled and finished products are reduced substantially. Yield and productivity are improved for all grades. In roll-outs across multiple casters and production sites all relevant quality and process metrics are standardized.
SST Casting AI computes automatically optimal caster settings for each casting sequence, for each heat, for each bloom / billet, taking into account all relevant data. Included live decision support modules are integrated online into the production process and ensure that operators meet optimal process conditions exactly - under all circumstances.
Direct integration of surface, contour and inner quality inspection data enables a complete solution for casting-related defects that appear on cast, rolled and finished products. All defects are classified correctly and automatically mapped onto the exact strand position they originate from. Quality engineers get full transparency across all processing steps.
Smart Steel Technologies' metallurgists have twenty years of experience optimizing continuous casting machines around the world. This world-class expertise is reflected directly in the quality and scope of SST Casting Optimization AI's capabilities.
ArcelorMittal Duisburg to Implement AI Solution in Steel Production
"In an economically challenging situation, we consciously invest in the optimization of our temperature control using Artificial Intelligence technology. This will allow ArcelorMittal Duisburg to further increase process stability and reduce energy costs. The software is installed in a minimally invasive way. The installation effort is limited."
ArcelorMittal Hamburg to Implement Comprehensive Package of AI Solutions in Steel Production
"We have observed very closely the outstanding performance of Smart Steel Technologies at other ArcelorMittal plants. ArcelorMittal Hamburg will now apply AI-based optimization to both, the continuous casting process and to the rolling mill. This will lead to permanent improvements in quality and efficiency. The live data and AI platform will also serve as a basis for further data-driven optimization."
PSI Metals and Smart Steel Technologies Enter Into a Strategic Partnership
"Both companies are pursuing the goal of a smart, fully automated factory based on the technological achievements of digitalization. The clear focus on the steel industry makes SST the ideal partner on our journey to the above-mentioned goals."
