Plant development

Customers increasingly require turnkey systems solutions. GMT is facing up these challenges.

We make your ideas come true!

A large number of references and joint patents with leading companies in the steel industry stand for our procedural competence. In recent years, several plant concepts developed by GMT have been realized in cooperation with partners from plant engineering and automation technologies with clear advantages for the customers. The co-ordinated know-how of a high performance team of developers, plant engineers and automation engineers guarantees reliable concepts and fast turnaround times from the concept through the design drawing to production and commissioning.

Process-know-how meets contemporary image processing

In rolling and forging plants, image processing solutions are increasingly used for surveying, quality control and process tracking. In cooperation with the Society for the Advancement of Applied Computer Science e. V. GMT develops

  • optical measurement systems for forged and rolled products,
  • automated embossed number detection systems and
  • systems for material tracking.

An optical bar counter has been developed to monitor the cooling bed handler and has been coupled to the material tracking in a bar mill. In cooperation with an image processing company, a system for automated embossed number detection has been developed as well. The system is installed on the cold side of a pusher type furnace of a bar mill and ensures the complete monitoring of the billets in order to avoid material mix-up.
