Case Study: Enhancing steel manufacturing with the OE750

Customer Overview: Thu Duc Steel and Visa Steel are leading steel manufacturers based in Vietnam, boasting over six decades of combined industry experience. Seeking to enhance their steel production processes, both companies aimed to address specific challenges faced in their operations.


Challenges Faced: Before adopting Hitachi products, both Thu Duc Steel and Visa Steel relied on optical emission spectrometers from other manufacturers, resulting in high consumable usage and increased costs. Additionally, their steel production required meticulous control of various elements such as P, S, B, C, and N. Their primary goal was to find a solution that met their unique requirements while being cost-effective. 

Why Hitachi Stood Out: The OE Series optical emission spectrometers offered several advantages. Firstly, they significantly reduced consumable costs, providing substantial savings. Secondly, the exceptional customer service provided by Hitachi's partner, Quoc Huy, ensured timely support for any issues, available 24/7. Lastly, the technology itself, incorporating a high-resolution CMOS Detector, was highly effective. Hitachi's analyzers seamlessly integrated into both companies' manufacturing processes, offering ease of use and precise control over input and output products. 

Achievements Since Implementation: Following the adoption of Hitachi's solutions, both Thu Duc Steel and Visa Steel achieved precise control over the elemental composition in their steel, ensuring consistent quality and adherence to industry standards. This led to significant cost savings for Thu Duc Steel and Visa Steel, along with a reduction in argon consumption, impacting operating costs positively. Both companies continue to rely on Hitachi machines daily, recognizing their enduring value and contribution to the steel manufacturing process. 

Both Thu Duc Steel and Visa Steel recommend Hitachi products for their cost-effectiveness, accuracy, and exceptional support provided by partners like Quoc Huy. Hitachi's commitment to quality and service-oriented technology makes them a preferred choice for businesses seeking high-precision analytical solutions in steel manufacturing.
