Primetals Technologies achieves successful remote commissioning of process automation of continuous caster for Outokumpu in Tornio

In June 2020, Primetals Technologies successfully completed the online commissioning of the new software for optimizing the Level 2 process automation for the CCM1 continuous caster at Outokumpu’s plant in Tornio, Finland. The remote commissioning used empirical values gained from commissioning the similar CCM2 continuous caster at the same location in December 2019. As well as upgrading the process optimization software for the CCM2, Primetals Technologies also installed a TPQC (Through-Process Quality Control) caster system, which records all the quality data of the entire production process in a long-term archive. The experience gained during the CCM2 project and the mutual trust this built up were decisive factors in the success of the trouble-free remote commissioning of the CCM1. The new process optimization solution offers Outokumpu more options for flexible quality evaluation and a “digital twin” for offline simulation of the casting process. The casting speed can also be controlled via Level 2 with the “Speed Expert” process model, which also covers start of casting and casting situations.
