AIC India received the order for the upgradation of the speed control system for Alloy Steel Plant

In December 2022 AIC India received an order from one of the Alloy-Steel manufacturers in Southern India to overcome the problems with respect to existing rolling mill control systems namely.

  • Obsoleteness
  • Over 95% CPU loading resulting in inconsistent behavior of the control system
  • 100% Memory utilization resulting in no possibility for program modifications & integration of external systems
  • Service and support issues. 

The target of the project is to improve improving the overall reliability and availability of the control system. 

The scope of supply consists in: 

  • Advanced controllers based on Simatic S7-1500
  • Simatic HMI servers in redundant configuration ensuring high availability
  • Profibus interface to existing drive systems
  • Interface to existing Motion controller already supplied by AIC
  • Interface with external systems 

The equipment will be delivered is foreseen in the first week of July 2023 and we expect the system to be commissioned by end of July 2023.
