Tokyo Steel Chooses Q-ASC for Scrap Selection
Danieli Automation to adopt Danieli Automation package for EAF material feed
Tokyo Steel, the largest steel scrap consumer in Japan, purchases various types of scrap to feed its electric-arc furnace melting process. To support scrap handling and classification of the incoming material, the steelmaker selected Danieli Automation to supply the Q-ASC Automatic Scrap Classification system.
Q-ASC will go through various self-learning phases to achieve fully automatic scrap classification, providing real-time feedback for yard operations and objective support in claims made to suppliers.
The project will be implemented at the Kyushu plant but the cloud-based system architecture will make possible a seamless extension of Q-ASC to other Tokyo Steel plants.
The Q-ASC application, part of Danieli Automation DIGI&MET, is a response to EAF steelmakers’ need for Industry 4.0-compatible data technology.
