POSCO Embraces AI to Take the Lead in Smart Manufacturing
South Korea’s largest steelmaker POSCO is set to increase investment in smart manufacturing technologies and digitalization to transform itself into a smart POSCO.
POSCO said on Mar. 8 that it had successfully developed ‘AI-based Coating Weight Control Solution’ in a joint industry-academia project and already applied the solution to its production process last January.
The AI-based Coating Weight Control Solution is a technology that can dramatically reduce the deviation of coating weight by using AI to precisely control continuous galvanizing lines (CGL). CGL is the primary technology for automotive steel sheet production.
In particular, this technology is an automatic control technology that predicts coating weight in real time and accurately meets the target coating weight by combining an AI-based coating weight prediction model with an optimization-based control model.
