QMOS has been implemented in Gerdau Ameristeel’s Cartersville plant in both Melt Shop and Rolling Mill. In addition to QMOS, Quad Infotech implemented their Billet Tracking system for the first time with great success.
This system (QTS) is able to track a billet from the entrance to the Reheat Furnace up to the Cooling Bed. All user specified process parameters such as temperature, stand torque, RPM and many more are taken from the PLC and attached to the billet. All data is fully integrated into QMOS. If users wish to investigate problems with Bundles, they can dig down to the billets of that bundle and analyze all process parameters in order to gain a clue into the source of the problem.
