ChelPipe Group Tests Yandex Solutions

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, May 15, 2018. ChelPipe Group had Yandex Data Factory (YDF) solutions for improved OCTG thermal treatment tested at one of its member enterprises, the Group’s press service reports.

The tests are carried out at Pervouralsk New Pipe Plant’s Finishing Center; it has been shown that the new solutions can ensure a 3.5% increase in the thermal treatment department’s overall productivity.

Yandex experts designed a mathematical model for automatic assignment of the most suitable thermal treatment mode for a particular pipe type. YDF-Hardening Optimizer, an ad hoc piece of software, allows for processing of recommendations the system makes for thermal treatment of every batch of pipes. Sixteen different thermal treatment modes got tested so far.

‘ChelPipe Group looks to launch the most advanced automation solutions. YDF ensures increased productivity, reduced costs, and improved profit margins - without large investments. The company intends to keep trying out Big Data-based mathematical models to make its technological processes more efficient,’ says ChelPipe Group’s Technical Director Kirill Nikitin.
