SAO PAOLO_SUMARE’ (BRAZIL). Villares Metals operates in the production of special steels for over 70 years and is the largest producer of non-flat high alloy specialty steel in Latin America.
This success is due to the expertise gained over time and also to all investment made in the factory, in people and in the Research and Development Center, which focuses on developing new products and processes to meet specific customer needs and general market requirements. The collaboration with Polytec, brand of BM Group, worldwide leader in smart robotics applied to steel industry, started in 2017 with the first order of a full automatic robot for sampling and temperaturemeasurement for high alloyed steels in LF 1 . This application has been engineered and manufactured on specific customer needs, tested and accepted in the Italian workshop of Polytec in March 2018 and installed in the brazilian plant in June 2018. After this successful project, a second similar robotic system for LF 2, sampling and temperature measurement for high alloyed steels has been supplied by Polytec in March 2019.
Both investments are part of the upgrade plan of Villares Metals, towards an always more competitive and high quality standard factory, where operators’ safety and a better work environment are cornerstones together with a production’s efficiency and products’ quality improvement.
