Refractory application machines must withstand harsh environments, typically in a steel mill. They allow steel producers (RHIMagnesita s customers) to extend their production campaigns in order to maximize their output. A standard machine repairs a refractory lining in short maintenance breaks to ensure safe production and extend the refractory lining lifetime.
But refractory application machines also produce data, which is far from being fully used today.
Using this data can help to build a predictive maintenance system for refractory application machines, improve our on-customer-site warehouse management and sharing the consumption data with our customers can deepen the trust into our collaboration.
