在哈萨克斯坦巴甫洛达尔现场，DAQRI 业务开发和解决方案架构人员团队与 KSP Steel 的生产领导层密切合作，了解钢铁生产过程、运营挑战和工人痛点。
KSP Steel 是哈萨克斯坦第一家为石油和天然气行业生产无缝钢管的公司，成立于 2007 年初。哈萨克斯坦共和国总统努尔苏丹·纳扎尔巴耶夫出席了 KSP Steel 在 D 市巴甫洛达尔市的工厂正式开业典礼
在过程观察点采用 DAQRI SMART HELMET™ 和视觉标记，KSP Steel 工程师可以获得两项新功能。 1. 就地 AR 数据可视化：工人可以在需要的时候安全地访问必要的信息，而不会浪费旅行时间或中断态势感知。 2. 便携式过程数据：工人可以为给定的观察点选择一个 AR 数据可视化并将其固定到他们的 AR 显示器上，而与唯一的标记无关。这消除了对已安装物理基础设施的依赖，并允许用户安全地随身携带信息，从而在流程灵活性方面提供指数级改进。
Goldcorp: Internet of Things Enables the Mine of the Future
Goldcorp is committed to responsible mining practices and maintaining maximum safety for its workers. At the same time, the firm is constantly exploring ways to improve the efficiency of its operations, extend the life of its assets, and control costs. Goldcorp needed technology that can maximize production efficiency by tracking all mining operations, keep employees safe with remote operations and monitoring of hazardous work areas and control production costs through better asset and site management.
Bluescope Steel on Path to Digitally Transform Operations and IT
Increasing competition and fluctuations in the construction market prompted BlueScope Steel to look toward digital transformation of its four businesses, including modern core applications and IT infrastructure. BlueScope needed to modernize its infrastructure and adopt new technologies to improve operations and supply chain efficiency while maintaining and updating an aging application portfolio.
RobotStudio Case Study: Benteler Automobiltechnik
Benteler has a small pipe business area for which they produce fuel lines and coolant lines made of aluminum for Porsche and other car manufacturers. One of the problems in production was that when Benteler added new products, production had too much downtime.
Continuous Casting Machines in a Steel Factory
With a very broad range of applications, steel is an important material and has been developed into the most extensive alloy in the engineering world. Since delivering high quality is absolutely crucial for steel plants, ensuring maximum productivity and the best quality production are the keys to competitiveness in the steel industry. Additionally, working conditions in steel factories are not suitable for workers to stay in for long periods of time, so manufactures usually adopt various machines to complete the steel production processes. However, the precision of these machines is often overestimated and the lack of flexibility also makes supervisors unable to adjust operating procedures. A renowned steel factory in Asia planned to improve its Distributed Control System (DCS) of furnaces as well as addressing the problem of insufficient accuracy. However, most well-known international equipment suppliers can not provide a satisfactory solution and local maintenance because the project needed new technologies to more accurately control equipment operations. By implementing Advantech’s automated monitoring and control solution, steel factories can not only improve the manufacturing processes but can also allow users to add additional functions to the existing system so as to make sure the operation runs at high efficiency.
