Paper Abstract

In this age of globalization, market competition has made many steel companies become more customer focused which has led to a re-evaluation of their production capabilities. This push for more competitive, flexible and higher quality products has forced steel companies to invest in new process technology and to improve existing process control capabilities. This has led to new sensor initiatives and opportunities and as a results there is a need and a trend to move as much of the off-line testing on product characteristics, to the on-line environment. This has been almost impossible in the past, however due to the advances in opto-electronic technology, especially the laser, new sensors have been developed and applied to these technology, especially the laser, new sensors have been developed and applied to these difficult measurement problems. This paper will outline some of the opportunities and process sensor initiatives which are underway in the North American Steel Industry.
