High ambient temperatures in workshops and high concentrations of chemicals in the air are typical environmental conditions associated with steel processing. This environment places stringent demands on the drive systems and brakes used in process plants for the production of steel and other ferrous and non-ferrous products. The hot metal line, semi-automatic rolling mill and loader cranes require the most reliable and service-friendly braking systems. MMJ-invest engineers and technicians have many years of experience in applying solutions for the metallurgical industry and know the problem areas and pitfalls of the industry. In metallurgical plants around the world, a system of remote monitoring and control over the condition of the brake elements installed on the equipment is actively used, which makes it possible to effectively diagnose deviations from the norm at an early stage.
