A process performance diagnostic service, the Cold Rolling Mill Fingerprint will establish a benchmark for current process and control performance levels, and provide a basis for evaluating and identifying improvement opportunities. It's a lifecycle audit of the mechanics, motors, drives, and automation platform, a service that can be applied to any cold rolling mill.
After detailed analysis you’ll receive an implementation plan with recommendations to improve productivity, quality and yield. The reports also provides an associated estimate of the return on investment. This fingerprint study also identifies opportunities for better lifecycle management that can form the basis for cost forecasts and dates of modernization for years to come.
In addition to this stand-alone fingerprint audit ABB offers Performance Optimization Service for cold rolling mills, an advanced service combining process-specific digital technology solution with continuous monitoring, and real-time, expert, remote support via ABB’s Collaborative Operations Center, allowing metals customers to leverage ABB’s extensive process know-how to harness plant data and use it to analyze, visualize, predict and prevent faults and failures and achieve as yet unprecedented levels of productivity, quality and yield in long product rolling. The digital technology at the core of this service is also available as stand-alone solution called ABB Ability™ Data Analytics for cold rolling mills.
