The Electrical Applications and Computer Applications Technology Committees, led by Chris Burnett of Thermo Fisher Scientific, co-sponsored the Process Systems Technology Training Conference in Mobile, Ala., USA, on 2–5 March 2015. The 47 attendees were given an overview of the complete level 0, 1 and 2 systems available today for various mill types, along with details of how individual mills may be configured. This knowledge will be useful for upgrading existing mills as well as new installations. The intent of the conference was to educate and inform the attendees on the various components and systems available, making organizational discussions less stressful and implementation more seamless. The agenda was a single track with time reserved for small group discussions on specific topics of interest. The class ended with a tour of the cold rolling facilities at AM/NS Calvert LLC.
