TimkenSteel implements Worlds’ AI platform into steelmaking ops

Written by Laura Miller

TimkenSteel has begun utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) software from Worlds to gain insight into its steel manufacturing processes.

Worlds’ AI platform is enabling the Canton, Ohio-based SBQ steel producer to monitor and optimize operations in real time, the software company said in a statement sent to SMU.

As the AI platform has been embedded on top of TimkenSteel’s existing IoT network, there’s no need for additional hardware or special equipment, Worlds said.

“Our collaboration with Worlds is unlocking new possibilities within our industry – further emphasizing our dedication to achieving excellence in reliability and the production of high-quality, American-made steel,” commented Andrew Bissot, TimkenSteel’s VP of engineering, manufacturing excellence, and reliability.

“The ability to measure, collect, and act on real-time data enhances safety, operational efficiency, and overall performance within the steel industry,” he added.

“Our partnership with TimkenSteel has the potential to show an entire industry how it can re-imagine safer, more productive steel manufacturing through more human-centered AI,” noted Dave Copps, CEO of Dallas-based Worlds.
