SPECIAL: TRADE FAIR PREVIEW
METEC 2023 and THERMPROCESS 2023 - the most important international trade fairs for metallurgy and industrial heat treatment technology METEC and THERMPROCESS will once again provide a comprehensive overview of equipment and processes for the metals industry, including industrial heat, from 12 to 16 June 2023 in Düsseldorf. With the task of achieving climate neutrality by 2050 at the latest, the industry is facing probably the biggest change in its history. The Düsseldorf trade fair will reflect this decisive development: on the one hand, the challenges facing the industry and, on the other, the innovations that machinery and plant manufacturers are offering metallurgical industrial companies worldwide.
Increased reliability on electric arc furnace by eliminating transformer inrush current
A new 38 kV medium-voltage circuit breaker was launched in 2018 for use on electric arc furnaces as a frequency breaker. With its innovative drive technology (one servo motor per phase) and new vacuum interrupter technology, it is capable of up to 150,000 mechanical and 120,000 electrical operations. In 2021, further development of this circuit breaker took place with the supplementary function of transformer inrush current elimination.
Optimising the use of materials while taking CO2 reductions into account In Austria
Breitenfeld Edelstahl decided to initiate a digital transformation of the company in 2021. In this context, a new type of raw material optimisation software was introduced. A sophisticated mathematical algorithm combined with metallurgical intelligence makes it possible to optimise the use of raw materials. Shortly after implementation, cost savings were quickly realised, which helped to cover the investment of the entire digitisation project.
Efficient process management at electric and ladle furnaces with in-situ slag analyses
For some years now, laser OES has been increasingly used for metal and slag analysis in steelworks. In this process, the slag is filled into a measuring vessel while still red-hot and analysed in a high-end laser spectrometer. Within seconds, the precise chemical analysis is ready. In combination with the steel analysis, the shift foreman can precisely calculate which additions and treatment times are necessary to achieve the desired product quality.
Influences on the quality of heavy plate after heat treatment
The term heavy plate has shifted in the last 15 years with advancing technology towards thinner plates up to 2 mm thick. The demands on the plates in terms of strength and wear resistance have increased considerably with the development of new materials. Depending on the application and the sheet geometry, the heat treatment must be individually adapted. The cooling rate during solidification from the liquid phase already has an influence on the sheet quality, as do trace elements and the impurities on the brittle behaviour during tempering.
Virtual reality conquers plant engineering
From plant sales, engineering, production and logistics planning to assembly, commissioning and optimisation during operation: a VR system can now be used in all project phases. Instead of working on the monitor, the designers work on their 3D CAD models in VR immersively on the model. At the same time, the realistic visualisation of a plant facilitates communication with project partners all over the world. According to forecasts, virtual and augmented reality could experience a worldwide boom by 2030.
Classification of acceptance test certificates with the help of AI-based software
In the metal industry, acceptance test certificates are probably among the most individual, structured document types - a special challenge for any recognition software. At Beulco, a manufacturer of products for water supply, the use of an AI solution has led to an automated capture rate of now more than 99 per cent for test certificates. The company has thus created the prerequisite for digitising the entire process from incoming goods to outgoing goods.
Hoberg & Driesch increases customer satisfaction and efficiency with new customer portal
Hoberg & Driesch, one of the leading wholesalers of steel pipes in Europe, has created an online portal within a few months, in which its customers can see the wholesaler's current stocks, place products in a shopping basket and automatically request a quotation. Both for the customers, who are not connected via EDI, and for Hoberg & Driesch, the portal means a considerable increase in efficiency.
Interface to steel processing successfully implemented with an online shop
To remain successful, companies must digitalise and automate their processes. Recently, G. Elsinghorst Stahl und Technik GmbH was able to implement another digitalisation project to successfully connect the online shop in the steel trade with the merchandise management system via an ERP interface.
Using thickness measuring systems safely as production-critical solutions
Sheet thickness is a decisive quality criterion for almost all processes in flat steel production, finishing and processing. The expansion of the EMG product portfolio to include the EMG iTiM product family for all thickness measurement methods currently used in the industry (X-ray, isotope, laser) and the associated design and software know-how opens up completely new possibilities for the user, even for modernisations and conversions. The article shows the state of the art for the measuring methods mentioned and their intelligent combination.
Combined 2D and 3D surface inspection system in a pickling line
The use of two highly efficient Surcon measuring systems installed in one measuring system enables thyssenkrupp Rasselstein GmbH to further reduce the occurrence of rolling damage and strip cracks.
Flatness and contour measurement in a new dimension
Nokra's measuring systems measure the flatness, contour, thickness or width of the most diverse strips and sheets of their customers in a non-contact and automated way. The measuring systems are kept on course by axes with toothed belt drive. Thanks to the flexible accessories of the linear axis, the measuring systems can be individually adapted to the respective application requirements.
