More and more high-quality new steel products are needed in the market. Therefore, companies need to grasp the environmental conditions, reduce downtime to the minimum and achieve high quality standards. Interaction between units, such as blast furnace, continuous caster and rolling mill, is a very complex process, and it is necessary to strengthen the cooperation among units in the overall scope. Individual customer needs often dominate business processes, which require standardization and automation; for example, data is provided by the center. In addition, fierce competition has led to huge price pressures and the need to increase productivity. EPLAN can provide the foundation for your company's success: an effective, goal-oriented, continuous process chain, and complete documentation of all devices.
Modern iron and steel production requires efficient use of energy and raw materials. Equipment is composed of multiple systems and components. These components must interact smoothly to ensure efficient and competitive uninterrupted production. As a result, steelmakers and equipment engineers are facing the challenge of finding new solutions to meet market demand. The answer lies in internationalized integrated device design, high-level standardization and complete and consistent documentation.
