Luxmet has taken a major step as an advanced technology developer for the global steel and metal industry. The first delivery of ArcSpec has been taken into operational use at the Outokumpu Tornio plant’s stainless steel production. The delivered ArcSpec system is used to monitor scrap melting progress and dynamically control the EAF electrode power, resulting in shorter tap-to-tap times, saved energy and reduced equipment wear.
