Steel Making


The emphasis on sustainability feeds the need for the entire steel industry to reduce its carbon footprint and polluting materials, thereby promoting a circular economy. 

Before direct loading into the EAF, AIC is able to deploy the best systems to reduce operating and scrap costs. By-product management with high performance and reliability is guaranteed, including scrap handling and tracking system phases.


Electrical Arc Furnaces (EAF) and Ladle Furnaces (LF) are optimized for the melting process ensuring reliability according to the ferrous materials in the plant. 

E&A equipment installations will benefit plants in achieving an efficient energy input with high active power, used in desulphurising steel, removing other impurities and holding the molten steel for casting operations.

— Process control
— Material handling
— Traceability


Level control and lines management increase continuous casting (CCM), as part of the process of solidifying molten metal into a “semifinished” billet, bloom, or slab for subsequent rolling in finishing mills, to new heights. 

The AIC solution will prevent, to the extent minimum possible, the operator’s contact with potentially dangerous parts of the mechanical/electrical equipment during its intended use, in order to eliminate dangerous conditions while taking into account the various operating phases of the work equipment and in the “production constraints”.

— Straighteners
— Lines management
