INTECO successfully installs another ESR plant for Breitenfeld Edelstahl AG
After erection of the 30t ESR plant began on schedule in January 2019, the first successfully remelted ingot was presented approximately ten weeks later.
Breitenfeld Edelstahl AG, which is based only a few minutes away from INTECO's headquarters, is without doubt one of INTECO’s best and most important customers and therefore enjoys a special status. In May 2018 a contract was signed for the engineering and supply of a state-of-the-art 30t ESR plant, which will further increase the ESR capacities of the Upper Styrian producer of quality and premium steels. In addition to the existing two ESR plants and the VAR furnace, this plant will be the fourth remelting plant in the ultra-modern special steel plant to meet Breitenfeld's high requirements.
In addition to the ESR plant, which is designed according to the latest state of the art and whose design and technology has been further developed by INTECO on the basis of decades of experience, a modern process and production management system will also be implemented. The so called IMAS system (Inteco Metals Application Suite) will integrate the existing remelting plants and meet Breitenfeld's requirement for a holistically-optimized, reproducible and well documented production management system and an increased level of digitalization.
