In a remarkable display of commitment to excellence, Brazilian steel producer Villares Metals has taken a momentous leap forward with the implementation of the advanced production management software, PSImetals 5.23, for their esteemed Multi Line Hot Rolling Mill. The decision to replace the existing solution with PSImetals was driven by the strong desire to enhance quality control, harmonize the intricate IT landscape, and significantly reduce operational failures.

Villares Metals has maintained a long-standing relationship with PSI, the developer of PSImetals, since 2009, embarking on various successful collaborations. This time, Villares chose to expand the scope of PSImetals to encompass the downstream areas, bringing together the Melt Shop MES and the Hot Rolling Area MES within a single software platform. The comprehensive implementation includes features such as production and quality tracking, line scheduling, material tracking with level 1 integration, and seamless integration with the SAP system.

To ensure the seamless execution and success of this transformative project, a team of seasoned experts from PSI Metals Brazil provided dedicated support to the Brazilian steelmaker. Fluent in the local Portuguese language, these experts actively engaged with key users, meticulously understanding their unique needs and skillfully configuring PSImetals to fulfill the precise requirements of Villares Metals.

Mr. Carlos Tempesta, the Digital Transformation Manager at Villares Metals, expressed his enthusiasm, saying, "The journey with PSImetals has been an immensely enriching experience. The most remarkable outcome of implementing this new solution has been the ability to exercise precise control and standardize our processes. The professionals at PSI Metals possess exceptional knowledge of steelmaking processes, which significantly facilitated our work and preemptively mitigated numerous challenges throughout the project. They made invaluable contributions by suggesting improvements that were previously unknown to us, guiding us towards unparalleled success."

Villares Metals, a prominent member of the High Performance Metals Division within the esteemed voestalpine Group, stands as the largest producer of non-flat high-alloyed steels and Ni-based alloys in Latin America. Their exceptional products find widespread application in key industries such as automotive, aerospace, and energy, reinforcing their pivotal role in these sectors.
