W Silver Inc is a leading national producer of rolled and fabricated high quality steel products, such as: farm & ranch painted steel fence posts, vineyard steel grape stakes; erosion control stakes, U-channel posts. Their products are frequently used as steel T-posts at farms, vineyards, olive orchards and raisin farms. After receiving the rails from the Yard department, they are heated in a reheat furnace to more than 2300°F (1260°C) to prepare them for slitting. After reheating, the rails are processed into finished hot rolled sections in the Mill by slitting, head, web, and base of the rails and routing them to a series of mill stands where hot rail sections are progressively reduced and shaped into rail steel products. Finally, the rolled products are transferred to the Finishing Department for any additional processing, storage and shipment to the customers.
AIC is a global system integrator providing advanced and tailored automation and robotic solutions for the steel industry, with the aim to continuously improve efficiency, competitiveness and safety of the production processes.
