SOJA Project: Slab Surface Cracks Detection using EMAT Technology

The aim of the project is to maximize the efficiency of the steel continuous casting production process by developing an integrated subsurface crack detection solution which let slab manufacturers predict, detect and avoid defects in advanced stages of the process.

Innerspec Technologies has validated the effectiveness of novel surface inspection solutions capable of detecting surface and subsurface cracks in slabs using EMAT technology.

This technology is been developed through a collaborative Research and Development project in collaboration with ArcelorMittal España, Universidad de Oviedo and additional SMEs leader in offering integration solutions within industrial environments.

SOJA project is a Retos Colaboración national project partly funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness. Exp: RTC-2016-4883-5
