Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to Increase Flat Products Production
Within the framework of this report, 2 cases will be considered on accelerating the production of flat products at Severstal:
1) Controlling the rolling speed of slabs on mill 5000 using machine learning algorithms;
2) Control of the speed of the continuous pickling unit No. 3 based on artificial intelligence.
We are witnessing a significant increase in the productivity of the units, in particular, the NTA-3 demonstrates historical records in product output.
