The first learning steel plant

Big River Steel produces pipe grades for pipelines, silicon steels for electrical steel and AHSS grades for the automotive industry on SMS group equipment. As systems supplier for the steel mill complex, SMS group supplied all the equipment, process know-how and automation technology and supported BRS during commissioning.

From the combination with SMS digital's innovative solutions for data infrastructure, digital products and machine learning resulted in the world's first learning steel mill.
