Nucor Steel Berkeley orders SIAS surface inspection from Primetals Technologies


North American steel producer Nucor Steel Berkeley has awarded Primetals Technologies the order to

supply a SIAS surface inspection system for the company´s hot strip mill in Huger, South Carolina. The

surface quality of the hot strip will be checked after the finishing mill on the top side and before the down

coiler on the bottom side. The improved quality control will optimize production costs and maintenance

activities. In addition, the system offers a high resolution and the real time classification of defects as

well as coil grading and width measurement. The surface inspection system is scheduled to be

commissioned in the last quarter of 2016.
