UHT has received an order from Uddeholm for a new steelworks system that will handle the superior control of all steelworks processes including the electric arc furnace, ladle furnace and vacuum degassing.
– We chose UTCAS from UHT because the platform is the most complete control system on the market, says Lars-Göran Envall, head of IT at Uddeholm.
The delivery is based on UHT’s level 2 platform UTCAS® for design, control and optimisation of processes and equipment in steelworks. Also included in the delivery are adaptations to support Uddeholm’s unique manufacturing processes of their world-leading tool and high-performance steels.
The new system will be in operation in the first quarter of 2020. With UTCAS®, Uddeholm will take further steps towards Industry 4.0 in their steel production and get access to a scalable platform with support for the increasingly automated and connected production of the future. The installation of UTCAS® will also be an advanced tool for process development.
Uddeholm is the world’s leading manufacturer of tool steel for industrial tools. We put our hearts into every piece of steel and every step of the process, from raw material to finished product. Technology is important, just as know-how and product development. But equally vital are desire and courage, power and a forward-looking spirit. It’s about the passion within us – the love of steel.
UHT – Uvån Hagfors Teknologi AB, is a Swedish engineering company and well established global supplier of metallurgical processes and technologies to the iron, steel, stainless steel and ferroalloy industry. We concentrate our activities to AOD and CLU® converter refining, GRANSHOT® metal granulation and UTCAS® process control system.
