Steel industry uses proven processes for steelmaking operations to ensure efficiency and quality in the production. But, this industry is also recognised to have incremental advancements in terms of technology.

However, the increasing demands and strong competition in the global market change its trend dramatically. New technologies came in where automation starts dominating the operations in the steel industry.

In this regard, an advanced computing system is also needed to be installed in steel operations, specifically in BOF steelmaking process. Note that BOF steelmaking has a complex process and is performed at an extreme working temperature.

So, this device must have that capability to adhere its extreme working environment. And, at the same time, it can perform its specific functions effectively to produce high-quality steels.

Now, one of the most utilised computing devices by many industries is the S12 rugged industrial PC with projected capacitance technology. It is designed to perform industrial applications and set to function well even in harsh conditions.
