Predict your wear lifetime with the power of AI

Highest safety standards, complete utilization of your lining’s durability, leading to no break-outs: These are just some of the requirements that you as a steelwork manager face on a daily basis. Ensuring that logistical requirements are met and ensuring a balance between inadequacies of operating personnel and technology are other necessary aspects in achieving maximum refractory performance.

 

 

(English) APO – our unique and patented automated process optimization uses artificial intelligence to calculate a digital twin of your refractories in order to make refractory lifetime predictable. Meaning: Increased safety, optimized production and fewer production loss.

APO: Automated Process Optimization

APO enhances the prediction of a linings’ lifetime. With the support of your digital twin, you can interpret the parameters influencing the wear more efficiently. This is achieved by analyzing the data in an external data center using artificial intelligence methods.

Operating model: Fast, easy and secure

Your production data, including the information gathered by the laser device, is transferred directly to the RHI Magnesita external center. In this process, you can access the linings’ lifetime report via the RHI Magnesita edge mobile device provided by RHI Magnesita. A secure connection is guaranteed.
