Rolling Webinar hosted by Steel Times International
Tomorrow, August 11th from 15:00 (Italian time), our speakers Jens Nylander and Alghisi Federico will be joining the Rolling Webinar hosted by Steel Times International, which will cover topics such as sustainability, safety, and efficiency in the manufacturing processes for steel.

They will demonstrate in detail the potential and advantages of our most recent system, the #TrimBot, for automatically trimming and sampling wire rod coils in any handling area.

The lineup sees us as third exhibitors (so our presentation will start at 15:40 more or less). The presentation will last approximately 20 minutes and will be followed by a brief Q&A session.

The webinar is completely free for everyone.

AIC at AISTech 2022, Pittsburgh (USA)
Also this year we will be exhibiting at AISTech tradeshow - Steel's Premier Technology Event, one of the world's largest iron & steel conferences, which will be held in Pittsburgh (Pa, USA) from the 16th to the 18th of May.

Visit us at Booth #1841 to learn more about the range of competencies and services we provide as Group, our most technologically leading-edge applications, such as - as a world premiere - a brand-new mechatronics machine able to perform automatically both trimming and sampling operations and remove pieces from wire rod coils.

Our team will be there to assist you, answer your inquiries, give you detailed information and discuss the latest industry trends. Furthermore, during the show dates, you will be able to attend some technical presentations which will be showcased by our experts at the AISTech Conference.

The following is the technical sessions schedule:

MONDAY, May 16 | 2.00pm
Autonomous Trimming and Sampling of Wire Rod Coil Head and Tail
The rolling process has been refined and improved over the past several decades and today there are technological marvels worldwide. However, regardless of all the wonderous technologies such as high-speed rolling equipment, artificial technology and digital twins, rolling mills must regularly trim and sample the finished coiled products, and in almost all cases, this is a 100% manual operation. To address this, AIC has developed a fully autonomous trimming and sampling robot, the TrimBot. TrimBot is a trimming and sampling system that can operate within any existing vertical or horizontal coil handling system while offering perfect results and accuracy on every coil.

SPEAKERS: Antonio Ambra (AIC North America Corp.); Jens Nylander (AIC North America Corp.)

MONDAY, May 16 | 3.00pm
Successful Story of a Rolling Mill Full Upgrade, Challenges and Results
This paper presents a description of the challenges an obsolete rolling mill faces with automation and with controlling the key performance indicators, steps made to fully upgrade it in minimal stopping time, and a description of the obtained results.

SPEAKERS: Antonio Ambra (AIC North America Corp.); David Zapata (Chicago Heights Steel)
