Advanced engineering, design, & automation solutions for the modern metal industry

The metal industry has come a long way since industrialization. Ever-evolving control processes, design efficiencies, safety and environmental regulations, and global market participation have made metals and steel processing more agile and productive. Metals, such as steel, that are highly durable, highly recyclable, and low in production costs and energy requirements have persisting domestic and global demand for automobiles, energy, infrastructure, electrics, and appliances.

For manufacturers, retrofitting and modernizing metals plants and steel mills means higher demands for efficiency, consistency, sustainability, safety, and data. Faced with tight profit margins, regulation changes, foreign competition, and labor dynamics, producers must apply innovative, adaptive engineering solutions to upgrade their metals-processing equipment and operations.
