Rautaruukki to Use Experion PKS with PMD Controller to Automate and Streamline Critical Production Processes
KUOPIO, Finland, April 29, 2008 - Honeywell (NYSE:HON) today announced that Rautaruukki Oyj, will use Honeywell's Experion® PKS with PMD Controller system to automate the production processes of Rautaruukki's Raahe, Finland manufacturing plant. Collectively, the Honeywell solutions will serve to streamline the production line, helping to increase output and enhance product quality.
The Experion system will be used to control the secondary metallurgical process - a key sub-process in manufacturing high-quality steel products. It will also be used to automate processes such as the injection of additional elements into the molten steel, as well as temperature control. In addition, the Experion system will be delivered to the company's rolling mill, where it will be used to control the reheating of the furnace. The projects, which together total $2 million, are expected to be completed by the end of 2009.
"The Experion solution should bring vast improvements and new efficiencies to Rautaruukki's production line," said Timo Saarelainen, managing director, Honeywell Finland. "In particular, the new automation system should deliver higher usability and improved functionality, and be capable of responding faster to process control requests."
