Wireless data transmission in steelworks cuts costs and improves product quality

Nürnberg, (PresseBox) - .
- Simetal Wiplant integrates mobile equipment in automation network of steelworks
- Additional data improves process management and condition-based maintenance
- Easier implementation of measuring points that are difficult to reach with cables
- Can be used to track and identify mobile components

Simetal Wiplant is a new platform developed by Siemens Metals Technologies for wireless data transmission in steelworks. Plant operators can now integrate distributed sensor systems and mobile equipment such as ladle cars, scrap chutes or transport cars featuring integrated weighing technology into existing automation networks. Siemens also offers Wiplant-based applications for condition-based maintenance or for integrating test points that are difficult to reach with cables. The additional real-time operating and machine data help to implement individual process steps in the steelworks more precisely, improve their coordination and match maintenance work to specific requirements. This optimizes material deployment, makes logistics more efficient and shortens production times. The battery-operated systems are designed for long service and reliable operation under tough ambient conditions.
