In the rolling plant "1700" MMK Ilyich Metinvest Group implemented the investment project of automated process control systems (PCS) stands slab mill-1150 and the process for cutting shears. According to the work plan, this investment project should be completed in March 2012. Payback period of less than one year, and after the implementation of the economic effect — more than 1.5 million dollars a year.
Implementation of the project will more accurately keep track of the amount of metal that passes through the crimp office in the transmission of rolled slabs in office a thin sheet of PRM-1700. The basic idea of the know-how lies in the precise definition of the geometric dimensions of roll before cutting it to the cutter and the geometric dimensions of slabs after cutting, followed by determination of their theoretical weight.
"Conducting a comprehensive reconstruction of the shop not only allows you to automatically determine the exact geometric dimensions peals, slabs and their weight, but also ensures the stability of the rolling process, increases the accuracy slitting slabs and share transit rolling — said the chief engineer MMK Ilyich Sergei Matvienko. — And this, in turn, reduces energy costs, primarily natural gas and electricity, as well as increase the volume of commodity output by reducing the specific consumption of the metal.
