Automation and control

Systems for the process-product diagnosis of steel plants

The steel industry needs Automation & Control technologies to pursue the most complex industrial targets - the results of long manufacturing cycles.

RINA offer ranges from the optimization of automated systems’ performances, obtained by integrating proprietary process control models, to the development, installation and tuning of complex systems for the tracking, scheduling, process control, monitoring and process-product diagnosis of steel plants.


Process control systems


The result of a continuous work of development and implementation provides an on-line innovative automatic and control system which, when integrated with existing automated systems and measurement devices, allows you to successfully pursue the following targets:


The Coil Quality Decision Support System (CQDSS) has been developed to satisfy the steel industry’s demand for a more reliable system for coils’ quality evaluation. It is a powerful tool to help rolling mill operators attain full customer satisfaction.


We developed this product to provide steel shop planners with a tool that enables the achievement of the best balance between satisfying market needs and optimizing use of production lines.


Masys is a discrete event-based software tool for the design and analysis of batch and continuous steel manufacturing processes. It supports engineering companies and steel manufacturers in their design of optimized steel plant layouts and production strategies.

Innovative measuring systems

We develop, install and tune measuring systems - based on both commercial and homemade experimental devices - and supervisor systems, conceived to collect physical parameters for product dimension checking.

Furthermore, we rely on the following measurement systems:

Focus on lab & facilities

Our sensor and imaging analysis laboratory is endowed with apparatus for the design, fabrication, tuning and testing of innovative measurement systems.

Its capability on sensors’ and systems’ development is founded on the availability of multi-sectorial competences, which embrace the following different aspects:
