Steel Production and Steel Processing

Modern lightweight components and the higher stress of components require the manufacturing and processing of new steel alloys. Such treatment processes involve significant thermal sequences. Anyone controlling these sequences directly in the production process secures a decisive competitive edge. For by using thermography, you improve your quality assurance and minimize production losses during production of high-grade steels at the same time.

Steel Production: Benefits of Using Thermography

  • Permanent monitoring and process control
  • Savings in maintenance thanks to low-maintenance operation of infrared measurement and monitoring systems
  • Longer service life of equipment (e.g. ladles, torpedo cars)
  • Maintenance-free continuous operation thanks to special stainless steel camera housing
  • Use even in adverse industrial environments
  • Provision of alarm and process data via web interface in the company network
  • Increase in production safety and avoidance of accidents with at least serious consequences for employees, equipment and production operations (e.g. in the event of ladle breakages)
