Crude steel production
Modern production lines in steelmaking ensure economic success
Today's steel industry with its modern blast furnaces for pig iron production and the different converter methods can make products with a consistently high quality at low cost.
Because there is a high degree of plant automation the reliability of the components is a critical factor for the economic efficiency of the companies.
Here, sensors play a special role. Whereas in the past they were only used for process control they today provide additional information about the plant condition.
Required maintenance and repair can be planned and prepared precisely. ifm sensors with diagnostic functions are used for condition-based maintenance and contribute to cost reduction.
Sensors from ifm help increase the reliability and uptime of the installations.
