Smart Steel Technologies supplies ready-to-use AI software products for process optimization in steel mills. Resulting optimizations lead to permanently improved quality, reduction of energy costs and improved of CO₂efficiency - without the investment overhead of new physical equipment.
Smart Steel Technologies´ platform automatically merges L1 and L2 data as well as quality and surface inspection data from all stages of steel manufacturing. All data is mapped back precisely onto exact product positions. The software handles all transformations of the product from iron ore to galvanized strip / finished long product. All charging and treatment operations and all manipulations like uncoiling, down coiling, head / tail, top / down flips, cropping, cutting, welding are taken into account.
The platform stores data in accessible and scalable storage systems with minimized dependencies on external suppliers. Real-time ingestion of thousands of high-resolution process signals can be established. Live replication of L2, L3 databases is performed. Ready-to-use data conversion modules for connecting to relational databases, time series data streams, quality inspection systems and surface inspection systems are included.
Smart Steel Technologies’ team of experienced computer scientists and data experts has proven in numerous successful steel industry projects how L1 signals, L2 / L3 databases as well as quality and surface inspection data can be transformed into actionable information quickly and with only limited efforts on the side of the steelmaker.
The SST Platform can be installed on premises. It serves consistent live input data to all SST AI modules. Proprietary models of the steelmaker can use the SST Platform with full shielding in place to protect specific know how and internal data.
ArcelorMittal Bremen to Optimize Downgrading Rate with AI Solution for Grades with Demanding Applications
"We have observed very closely the outstanding performance of Smart Steel Technologies at ArcelorMittal Eisenhüttenstadt. The same quality optimization project is underway there. The results are convincing. So it is only logical to take this step in Bremen as well"
AI-based Solutions as a Step Into the Future
"The possibilities offered by AI solutions help to conserve energy and resources. We are striving to use them to produce even more precisely and thus also to increase the yield."
