Technology experts and the management team will be there to answer questions about key technologies that can help metals producers to take a decisive step toward fully digitalized operation.
Primetals Technologies offerings are centered around four focus topics:
Digital Plants – Connect to Smart:
Connectivity, quality optimization and digital twins are just three of the many new keywords that indicate how much digitalization is changing steel production. Primetals Technologies has created the tools to take the steel plants of today to the next level. In the smart plant of the future, all equipment will be digitally orchestrated to improve the production process, save costs, optimize resources, and maximize end-product quality.
Sustainable Steel - Connect to Green
Green-production technologies are changing steel production for a more environmentally friendly tomorrow. In order to achieve sustainable growth, it is crucial to use energy and raw-material resources as economically as possible. Primetals Technologies is continually innovating for nature, and offers green-production solutions that are in perfect alignment with local market requirements and country-specific regulations.
Productive Assets - Connect to Efficient
Knowing in detail what goes on in a plant is a great advantage for any steel producer, as is making this information available to those who need it, when they need it. Primetals Technologies provides plant owners with advanced software solutions that help maximize all facets of asset productivity. Other measures that promote solid asset management include plant-modernization projects and equipment upgrades.
New Business - Connect to Strategic
This focus topic answers important questions like how can an entrepreneur best break into the metals business, what steps should a veteran steel producer take to improve operations, make portfolio adjustments, and find the right market segments to maximize profitability. Primetals Technologies has decades of experience in business development, plant construction and modification, and in providing the required guidance when new opportunities arise.
