The two-year platform economy research project in metal processing (AMET) brings together two universities, five SMEs and two industrial partners, one of which is SSAB Europe. The project aims to improve the efficiency of metallurgical production processes and the supply chains of metal products. The purpose of the project is to develop process monitoring systems and expert systems for chosen processes, such as the electric arc furnace, continuous casting and rolling.
Using the right high-performance steel from SSAB, Australian Taurus Mining Solutions has managed to lower the weight of its mining buckets while still keeping their durability and increasing the capacity by up to 10 percent. This translates into cost savings for customers, and Taurus’s production also benefits.
