Russula & Petuum to Bring Industrial AI Software to Steel Industry
Russula announced in June 2021 that it has formed a strategic partnership with Petuum to provide Industry 4.0 manufacturing initiatives with revolutionary Deep Learning Optimization technology for steel manufacturing. Petuum and Russula are set to integrate Petuum’s award-winning Optimum AI software platform with Russula’s established Rolling Mill Control to enable steel AI for greater product throughput to tackle increased demand while reducing carbon emissions through better energy utilization.
This partnership between Russula and Petuum brings together top-notch engineering implementation with state-of-the-art AI software for steel manufacturing. As the steel industry moves towards an emissions free future and fully autonomous plants, Russula believe the co-developed solutions with Petuum is the path forward to develop the next generation of rolling mills. We look forward to collaborating with Petuum to unlock the potential of Artificial Intelligence in steel mills.
Russula and Petuum will be working with large global steel manufacturers to leverage Petuum’s Optimum SaaS offering to provide prescient predictions across multiple use cases, starting with hot rolling mills. Optimum is cloud-native and built to seamlessly handle data management, advanced AI/ML model training, human-machine interface and rapid deployment across multiple sites. Through this partnership, Russula and Petuum are advancing Deep Learning Optimization to increase throughput, improve quality control, and lower energy consumption for steel manufactures at scale.
Petuum’s award-winning Industrial AI product, Petuum Optimum, delivers precise real-time forecasts for key process variables, prescriptive optimal targets for critical variables, and AI-led automation control. Petuum Optimum uses ground-breaking adaptive machine and deep learning AI software that can continuously re-learn and improve production output and quality control in supervised or fully autonomous steer modes.
