SST Rolling AI leads to a permanently increased quality of the rolled product without installation of new equipment. Geometry tolerances, scale defects, surface defects and flatness deviations caused by the rolling process are reduced. Consequently, downgrading and reallocation rates are reduced as well. Undesired interruptions of the rolling process can be predicted, such that their impact is reduced.
Direct integration with SST Surface AI enables a complete solution for rolling-related surface defects that appear on hot-rolled coils, pickled coils, cold-rolled coils, and galvanized coils. All defects are reclassified correctly and automatically mapped onto the exact strip position they originate from. Quality engineers get full transparency across all processing steps.
Smart Steel Technologies' metallurgists and rolling experts comprise significant experience operating and improving rolling mills by using root cause analysis. This world-class expertise is reflected directly in the quality and scope of the SST Rolling AI's functionality.
