On the occasion of the 2020 Global Awards for Steel Excellence sponsored by Fastmarkets, Marcegaglia Ravenna presented five applications in three different categories, thanks to two innovative projects: Tensil Pro and Smart Line. The first was conceived and developed entirely by Marcegaglia Ravenna, the second is the result of a fruitful collaboration with Fives.
Marcegaglia Ravenna won the award for “Best Operational Improvements” while the duo Fives + Marcegaglia won “Information Technology Services”.
Tensil Pro is an online detection system for the mechanical characteristics of materials. It was created to improve product quality and process efficiency.
Smart Line was born from the combination of Tensil Pro and Fives’ experience in industrial automation. Smart Line integrates all the coil transformation production processes starting from hot rolling up to the finished product.
Tensil Pro and Smart Line allow the improvement of production costs thanks to energy-saving and productivity increases, to obtain a greater homogeneity of mechanical characteristics, to study quality and process trends as they vary of the input material.
