14.06.2021. ArcelorMittal Hamburg has commissioned the AI company Smart Steel Technologies to introduce its SST Platform. It also includes SST Casting AI and SST Rolling AI software
products. The platform will be integrated live with all relevant data sources from the melt shop, continuous caster and rolling mill.
The AI solutions serve to optimise the continuous casting process and the rolling mill through automated monitoring, prediction and live recommendations to fine-tune every aspect of production and to eliminate any inefficiency. ArcelorMittal Hamburg will permanently improve product quality, reduce costs and benefit from an advanced AI data platform designed specifically for steel manufacturers.
Dr. Uwe Braun, CEO ArcelorMittal Hamburg: “We have observed very closely the outstanding performance of Smart Steel Technologies at other ArcelorMittal plants. ArcelorMittal Hamburg will now apply AI-based optimisation 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 server as a basis for further data-driven optimisation.”
