ProSensus is pleased to announce our involvement in a new and emerging technology grant awarded by Next Generation Manufacturing Canada (NGen) to ArcelorMittal Dofasco. NGen awarded a total of 9 projects in July 2020, worth a collective $28.8 million (including investment by others).
ProSensus will participate in advancements to ArcelorMittal Dofasco’s secondary ladle metallurgy facility (LMF).
ArcelorMittal Dofasco has identified the opportunity to use “…digital technologies to improve its production process, minimizing manual intervention, reducing process variation, and improving final metal properties. The project will transform a heavy industrial asset with the best in advanced sensor development, video machine learning, and cognitive and cloud computing.”
The project will “…aim to create a hands-free production system, improve safety, quality and productivity, and prove that technologies in a challenging industrial setting can be applied across Canadian manufacturing.”
