Superior Quality

SST Casting OS - FLAT

AI-Based Casting Control

SST Casting OS 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 slabs, hot-rolled coils, cold-rolled coils, and galvanized coils 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 OS computes automatically optimal caster settings for each casting sequence, for each heat, for each slab, 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 with SST Surface OS enables a complete solution for casting-related surface defects that appear on slabs, hot-rolled coils, pickled coils, cold-rolled coils, and galvanized coils. 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 OS' capabilities.
