The largest conference in the North American steel industry for 33 years In partnership with World Steel Dynamics this event brings together 600 executives from over 380 companies annually for in-depth debate and invaluable networking opportunities. Crucially, 42% of these delegates are in CEO/President/Managing Director positions. Join the decision makers of the steel industry at their annual gathering in NYC.
Now running for a third of a century, the conference has helped lead the industry through ups and downs in both steel success and survival strategies. As the largest steel event in North America, it arms delegates with vital networking opportunities and indepth insight to stay on top of current issues and adapt strategies to gain or maintain a competitive edge. There is no doubt that recent years have brought incredibly difficult times for the steel industry and although there are still challenges ahead, the market is begining to experience positive changes. With strong indications of stimulation across the US economy, will the steel industry reap the benefits? Trade duties, raw material costs and demand prospects, both domestic and global, will also dominate discussion.

6th INTERNATIONAL STEEL INDUSTRY & PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGIES CONFERENCE - Istanbul, Turkey
May 09, 2018
The “6th INTERNATIONAL STEEL INDUSTRY& PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGIES CONFERENCE” took place in one of the world’s largest cities, Istanbul, on May 9th, 2018. Most of the more than 80 participants were Turkish steel producers, component manufacturers, and from associated fields to the iron- and steelmaking industry such as logistics, trade, magazines and public governmental affairs. The contribution of Primetals Technologies was a speech by Kurt Herzog who heads the Industry 4.0 team on the topic ‘How Digitalization can boost Quality, Productivity and Flexibility in Steel Production’ which was received with great interest by the audience. Kurt Herzog emphasized once again that the ‘strategic goals’ of the steelproducer, like cost competitiveness or new steel grade production, is of utmost importance. This will then lead to different Industry 4.0 solutions in Production Management System, Through Process Automation, and Computerized Maintenance Systems. Thus, automatic transformation of sales orders to process and quality instructions can increase the utilization of production facilities. With continuous recording and supervision of quality parameters, implemented rule based expert system, such data storage allows big data analytics. In combination with the metallurgical know-how of Primetals Technologies downgrading of certain steel grades can be eliminated and other corrective actions can be taken easily. Maintenance data is also available for analytics and deep learning in order to select a suitable maintenance strategy to maximize asset performance of the steelplant. See also the short YouTube video the Metals Orchestra.
At its conference booth, Primetals Technologies showed with so called VR (virtual reality) goggles some 3-D animations of its technologies like Quantum EAF, cold rolling facilities or pickling lines. The users of such goggle were also able to visit artificially one plant built by Primetals Technologies in Brazil and walk along Copacabana’s sandy beach while still being present at Primetals’ booth in Istanbul – see photo. Another eye-catcher was that by using hidden QR-codes on regular layout printouts, the responsible sales manager of Primetals Technologies showed on their I-Pad astonishing impressions of 3-D effects on such drawing since it looks like that by going with the camera of the I-Pad over such drawing a plant is built right in front of the observer.
Although ‘digitalization’ will influence not only steelmaking society, many leaflets were still collected by the audience from Turkey, India and Libya. Many of the attendants were convinced that challenging times are to be conquered by the Turkish steel industry (e.g. the night before the US president announced that US will pull out from the Iran nuclear deal).
