Title: The IoTrode™: A complete system to monitor and optimize all aspects of graphite electrode usage in an EAF Meltshop. The presentation will discuss the installation and the initial results.
AMI Automation has created a new module to add to its successful SmartFurnace™ System of digital tools for EAF melt shops. The IoTrode™ is part of AMI Automations furnace optimization system for monitoring, controlling and reducing the consumption of graphite electrodes in EAF (electric arc furnace) melt shops. The IoTrode™ provides for digitization of graphite electrodes for the modern EAF Steel Producer.
Fernando Martinez – Vice President AMI Automation said: “The IoTrode™ is the first in a series of new products AMI will be introducing to assist the EAF steel producer in optimizing and controlling their process.”
AMI is a leader in the field of EAF optimization, control and service. The IoTrode™ is the latest addition to the SmartFurnace™ suite that includes the SmartARC™, and DigitARC™ products that control and reduce electrode consumption. The AMI SmartFurnace™ System improves productivity and reduces energy used per ton of steel.
