Zebra Mobile Computers Improve Repair an Maintenance Quality at Severastal’s Steel Mills

Posted January 15, 2016

Severstal, one of the world’s largest vertically integrated mining and steel companies, has implemented a comprehensive solution to improve its quality assurance in repair and maintenance of plant assets with the help of Zebra’s MC75 and TC70 mobile computers. As of today, the project spans across Severstal’s facilities in Cherepovets, St. Petersburg and Balakovo, with 3,000 users.

Severstal needed to reduce the work time of technical experts in its factories, while simultaneously increasing the effectiveness of fault monitoring and swift issue response.  Zebra’s enterprise-class mobile computers, which are designed to operate in industrial facilities, meet the level of performance and reliability required by Severstal. After the successful completion of the pilot phase using 50 MC75 HF mobile computers, the amount of equipment downtime caused by poor maintenance was reduced in many cases by several times. As a result, the project was scaled up, and over 1000 TC70 units were implemented.

Furthermore, mobile device deployment has reduced the amount of time spent working on auxiliary IT systems: workflows are optimized, performance discipline heightened and the quality of data needed to analyze the efficiency of maintenance and repairs has improved, even as the volume increases.
