Fives’ Digital System Eyeron Receives Award at Industry of the Future Forum

Fives is an industrial engineering group with an extensive multi-sector expertise, a Metal-Expo regular exhibitor. Fives’ real-time steel quality control solution, Eyeron™, was commended at the first French-Russian “Industry of the Future” forum on April 11, 2019.

The forum, which was held in Moscow, was jointly organized by French Alliance “Industrie du Futur”, the technological centre of the French-Russian Chamber of Commerce “Nauka Innov”, the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs, Russian Ministry of Industry, the Embassy of France to Russia, with support from MEDEF International and Fives. Fives was represented by a strong delegation, headed by Frédéric Sanchez, Fives’ Chairman and CEO, who is also Chairman of MEDEF International.

During the one-day event, representatives of businesses and ministries, academics and technical experts shared their vision of the industry of the future, as well as technological and industrial cooperation. A major focus was placed on the potential of the digital economy, technologies, additive technologies, automation, robotics, big data and IoT.

Eyeron, a real-time quality management software tool

The system EyeronTM was successfully implemented in the steel shop, the hot rolling mill 2000 and the plate rolling shop N2 of Severstal, a leading Russian steelmaker, in 2018. It enables the shops to automatically manage more than 20,000 rules to make a decision on product quality. 

"This is the first intellectual system to automatically certify product quality in the metallurgical industry of the Russian Federation, and it’s the first system in the world which not only makes the decision on certification, but also offers possibilities to rework slabs and rolled products, considering the quality required by our clients. The system has a very high potential, and we plan to introduce it into other production shops of the plant", said Alexander Shevelyov, CEO of Severstal.

Peter Mishnev, Technical Development and Quality Director of Severstal Russian Steel Division, added: “Following the results of last year, the system allowed us to significantly reduce non-conforming products. The quantity of slabs requiring scarfing was also decreased. The financial benefit totaled €1.7 million.”

“It is in Fives' DNA to develop innovative solutions for and together with its clients. EyeronTM, a breakthrough digital application for steel quality management, was implemented at the Cherepovets plant thanks to the forward-thinking and spirit of partnership between the teams of Severstal and Fives”, said Frédéric Sanchez during the ceremony. Recognizing these significant achievements, the award was presented by Oleg Bocharov, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation in the presence of Sylvie Bermann, French Ambassador to Russia. 

Fives Group welcomes all steel industry professionals to visit its stand at Metal-Expo'2019, the 25th Jubilee International Exhibition, November 12-15, Hall 75, VDNHa, Moscow, Russia.
