New coil inspection line with intelligent quality management system
This contract comes in addition to the two galvanizing lines already won by Fives for this same greenfield facility.
With a total investment of about $2.7 billion, Nucor is building a new steel mill for sheet metal production on the Ohio River which is to start operations in the second half of 2024.
The recoiling and inspection line includes Fives’ state-of-art digital solution EyeronTM, an intelligent quality management system that collects upstream process data, checks consistency with quality rules and automatically assesses product quality grading. EyeronTM will be tracking quality on the vertical galvanizing line and the recoiling & inspection line to ensure the products meet the automotive quality standards.
“We choose Fives to supply an inspection line as an extension of our galvanizing line N1 using their automotive expertise supported with a real-time quality system,” says John Farris, Vice President & General Manager of Nucor Steel West Virginia.
