Commercialized signature of contract for the first set of unmanned casting facility for continuous casting independently developed by Baosteel Engineering [ 2019-03-15 ]

 Recently, Baosteel Engineering and Rongsheng Steel-making Co., Ltd. of Shagang Group officially signed in Zhangjiagang a contract for unmanned casting facility for continuous casting.  After the project is fulfilled, automatic casting and standardization for continuous casting will be realized, which can greatly reduce the labor intensity, reduce the number of workers and improve work efficiency. This also marks officially the commercialized signature of contract for the first set of unmanned casting facility for continuous casting independently developed by Baosteel Engineering.

 

In recent years, Baosteel Engineering has always regarded smart manufacturing as an important strategic opportunity and an important business guideline of the company.  The company relies on the advantages of “front-shop-back-factory”pattern and deep understanding of steel processing equipment and focuses on smart manufacturing and service and actively expands new business areas. As one of the key business areas of smart manufacturing, Baosteel Engineering has devoted great efforts to the unmanned casting facility project for continuous casting.  With the leading smart manufacturing, the intelligent continuous casting research team focused on digital design and simulation to realize a series of actions carried out by robot instead of human being such as assembly and disassembly of shroud, cleaning, oxygen burning, temperature measuring and sample taking in tundish, feeding additives etc. to acceler3-15ate digitalized design, digitalized delivery and fusion of digitalized operation and maintenance. Through years of technical research and development and laboratory testing, Baosteel Engineering has obtained its own core technical capabilities in unmanned casting facility for continuous casting and the condition for commercialization of this technical engineering has been achieved.

Before the project was signed, Baosteel Engineering and Shagang Group conducted several technical exchanges and on-site checking. Shagang Group also visited the unmanned casting platform of continuous casting of Baosteel.
