At this recycler, one kiln powers everything from iron grinding up to 110,000 tons annually. Demand is rising, increasing the need to transfer to a much smarter plant.
Leadership, aware of the benefits of new technology and solutions, started with a small product: the Allen-Bradley® E300 electronic overload relay. This relay’s flexible design, simplified wiring and seamless Logix integration removes obstacles in network communications, and offers real-time diagnostics to maximize up-time, improve efficiency and productivity, and protect assets.
This factory had started to equip with several Rockwell Automation products and solutions: ControlLogix® control system; SMC™ Flex soft starters; and software, including FactoryTalk® View based on EtherNet.
This was an important application, as it was the first time the E300 electronic overload relay was applied in the Korean market.
