Digitalization

Learn everything about our ideas for the digitalization of the metals industry and see our solutions from hands-on products to the vision of a digital platform for the metals industry. The aim is to realize a steel plant that operates at maximum profit. 

The “learning steel plant” has become reality. At Metec we will introduce to you our latest, fully digitalized plants including Big River Steel in the U.S.A. and Shandong Iron & Steel Group Rizhao in China. Both are examples of how our solutions help digitalize the complete value-added chain from liquid steel to the final product.

Core components here are innovative solutions such as our cross-plant digital quality monitoring and optimizing system PQA® (Product Quality Analyzer). Or our Manufacturing Execution System X-Pact® MES 4.0 for production planning and control. Become acquainted with our latest, intelligent sensor technology which provides the basis for digitalization and Industrie 4.0. Integrated in the plants, our sensors collect all required data in real time and make them available to the automation systems respectively for digital quality optimizations.

We will also show you the progress we made in terms of Machine Learning. In addition, you can learn more on how Augmented Reality supports and trains your maintenance specialists. What’s more, you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the virtual world and see your benefits with simulations based on Digital Twins.
