The multinational Arcelor Mittal, one of the world's leading steel and mining producers with a presence in more than 60 countries, has just unveiled its intention to develop drones that can perform certain jobs within your facilities and above all that they have the ability to do them as autonomously as possible.
This is precisely what he came to explain a few days ago Ruben Perez Chust, head of the department of mechatronics and computer vision at Arcelor Mittal in Asturias during an event in which several multinationals and large companies in the region presented some of their technological challenges to small companies to try to develop and do business together.
Arcelor Mittal shows its interest in everything that technologies such as 3D printing or drones can offer.
Going into a little more detail, it should be noted that Rubén Pérez Chust did not go into detail about the work that this series of drones had to carry out autonomously in their factories, although, for example, we know that Arcelor Mittal, in Brazil, uses drones to carry out inspections. maintenance at your facilities. Far from this, the manager did comment that the idea was to get order the drone to go to a point in any factory, do the task for which it was programmed, and return without tripping with no machine, worker or obstacle.
Undoubtedly, a project that, at least for the moment, is more of an idea than something truly tangible, although this is precisely the challenge that Arcelor Mittal is planning to its potential new partners. As a final detail, let you know that the innovation department is also looking for help to integrate 3D printing technologies into the design of your new products.
