On July 1, the whole-process single-engine heavy-load molten iron transporting commissioning of CISDI's intelligent molten iron transporting system was completed in Baowu Group Zhanjiang Steel. In the operation period of this system, the scheduling went smoothly and unmanned engines run steadily. The age of whole-process intelligent and unmanned molten iron transporting is coming. The system is a landmark achievement of CISDI in the intelligent steel manufacturing field and conforms to the trend of integrating artificial intelligence and real economy in the new era. CISDI utilizes it to promote the high-quality development.
The molten iron transporting system is necessary for iron and steel making and links the logistics system of steel plants with production system. In the past, molten iron scheduling, engine driving, unhooking, parking, positioning, route planning, tank matching and other steps were done by workers. At present, people yearn for a better life. All enterprises try to find out ways to achieve simple, efficient, low-cost and high-quality development in the process of intelligent upgrading.
With mature steel processes, CISDI integrates world-leading resources and independently develops a real-time self-learning and self-adaption high-precision control model. Besides, it utilizes the all-weather environmental perception, digital twin and other technologies to build the intelligent molten iron transporting system. Whatever the weather, high temperatures, heavy rain or typhoon, and whatever the circumstances, molten iron of 1500℃, dust and noise, the system can achieve all-weather environmental perception, obstacle detection, engine hooking and unhooking and precise positioning. Meanwhile, CISDI adjusts the old operating model that mainly relies on the experience, qualification and judgment of workers through technical innovation and management innovation. The full operation of this system will improve the working environment for workers, liberate the productive forces, enhance the molten iron transporting efficiency and greatly decrease the molten iron transporting cost of steel plants. This is of historical significance for intelligent manufacturing of steel enterprises.
It is worth mentioning that CISDI and AInnovation, a subsidiary of Sinovation Ventures, jointly established the CISDI-AInnovation AI Technology Company which focuses on offering industrial AI products and solutions. The company utilizes AI technology to promote the construction and operation of Zhanjiang molten iron intelligent and unmanned transporting project.
The project represents an in-depth integration of AI and intelligent technologies in industrial scenarios and an innovative practice of utilizing driverless technology in industrial scenarios. It serves as a model for the high-quality development of traditional industries and the building of intelligent steel manufacturing ecosphere.
