The project will implement automated ladle tracking systems to ensure consistent factory-wide tracking of the product from steelmaking via casting to delivery. The wireless tracking system in harsh steelworks environment will provide mandatory input data for projects on digitalisation (“Industry 4.0”). Automated, reliable information on actual position of ladles result in increased factory output and in improved safety in steelworks. Furthermore the ladle tracking system will be used to optimise ladle logistics during both smooth production conditions and in case of sudden disturbances in production plan.
