GERDAU PINDAMONHANGABA, Brazil - Upgrade of shears automation

August 26, 2013


Fast and successful upgrade of shears automation

In October 2012, Gerdau awarded Danieli Automation a contract to upgrade the automation system for the intermediate shears on Rolling Mill No. 2 at Pindamonhangaba. The mill produces specialty steel bars for the automotive industry, with strict controls ensured by the installation on the same line of two special gauges for dimensional control (HiGAUGE) and surface defects control (HiTEST). The system was installed during the 2012 Christmas Season and the Final Acceptance Certificate was released at the beginning of January 2013 with the successful execution in the record time of only 4.5 months from the contract signature to the project completion.
