Extreme conditions, intense competition

Few industries can match the extreme operating conditions in steel and other metal mills. Temperature and speed extremes. High and constant shock loads. Abrasive dust, aggressive chemicals and high humidity. Combined, these conditions degrade equipment, cause unplanned downtime and make effective maintenance difficult at best.

Today's mills also face equally intense global competition and environmental scrutiny. Bottom line? The need to increase productivity, profitability and sustainability has never been greater.
