08/07/2020 - Vallourec.smartThibault Masse, Smartengo Best Fit Business Owner, Vallourec, and Sébastien Leconte, Technology & Innovative Solutions Manager, Serimax, participated in the first Virtual Pipeline Summit, organized by EITEP (Europe Institute for Information and Technology Transfer) on June 30th.
The Virtual Pipeline SummitThis new online event concept gathered more than 600 “virtual” participants from 69 countries, including 180 pipeline operators, and offered extended knowledge transfer and networking opportunities. This summit provided a comprehensive overview and competitive technology showcase of a wide range of solutions related to "Digital Transformation in the Pipeline Industry" in these challenging times.
What is Smartengo Best Fit?Paving the way for a revolution in line pipe welding operations, this innovative solution is based on accurate pipe-end measurements and unique pipe-end identification. The data is then analyzed to predict the HiLo of all possible pipe-end combinations and to identify pipe-end compatibility – or incompatibility – using an accurate deterministic approach. This enables users to secure the production flow as per the specified HiLo or to reduce the HiLo which can lead to improved weld quality and other operational benefits.
