Severstal & iPavlov to Develop Precision Measuring Systems
Russian steel giant Severstal and the innovative AI company iPavlov have signed an agreement on partnership and integration of scientific, technical and innovation potential. The agreement confirms strategic scientific, technical and technological cooperation in 26 areas of development of precision measuring systems in the metallurgical industry. In particular, we are talking about the development of systems for monitoring residual stresses in the material, light spots, a system for automated non-destructive testing of the level of internal stresses in rolled metal and others.
At the moment, Severstal and iPavlov have identified two pilot projects. First, it is planned to develop a surface video inspection system for recognizing and classifying defects in cold-rolled steel, which will be distinguished by 100% automated control of the surface quality of the strip of produced rolled metal from both sides, without gaps and blind spots at a cutting speed of up to 6 m / s and a maximum roll width 1600 mm; as well as recognition, counting and classification of defects according to the list of critical defects in the production of flat products. Secondly, at the request of Aipavlov LLC, Research Center of Shvabe JSC, MIPT will develop profilometers based on new physical principles with a line width of up to 700 mm.
