Continuous casting

Business Problem

A reactive mode of operations is common for continuous (slab) casting, leading to higher scrap rates and increased costs.

Challenge

Operators often rely on past experience and gut feeling when configuring the slab casting process to meet specific quality measures such as width. With results only measured after the fact, unnecessary scrap and time consuming reconfiguration is common. 

SentianController solution

By forecasting important quality measures such as slab width, SentianController enables proactive operational configuration and decision making. Leading to lower scrap rates and faster reconfiguration.
