Client: Thyssen Krupp Rothe Erde GmbH


ThyssenKrupp Rothe Erde GmbH, the end customer of INP Germany, operates a ring rolling mill for the production of rings made out of steel, aluminum, copper or stainless steels. The rings are manufactured in the requested sizes and materials in the radialaxial roller bearings (RAWs). In the next production step, the steel rings produced in the rolling mill are subjected to heating and cooling treatment in the tempering plant consisting of annealing furnaces and cooling water tanks to achieve the desired quality requirements.

Project description

INP Deutschland GmbH was commissioned to migrate various inventory visualization systems (Protool, Intouch, obsolete WinCC version, etc.) including the associated production databases to a new plant-wide uniform visualization system. Particularly noteworthy was the requirement for a plant-wide standardized operating and visualization concept for the operator, taking into account an ergonomic design for the plant drivers (not a pure migration solution). A connection to the plant-wide SAP system for data exchange with the higher-level production management system had to be established via MS SQL databases. An increase in the level of automation was achieved by integrating a (partially) automated parts tracking system within the production line and by introducing new furnace controls via uniform programmers.
