Metallurgy is one of the most complex industries. It integrates the experiences that our ancestors have moved for generations to better understand chemical and manufacturing processes. Over the past few decades, metallurgy has experienced a massive transformation. Minimizing ecological burdens, maximizing economic indicators and, last but not least, lacking skilled human resources puts the future of metallurgical process management in a difficult task of replacing human power in heavy and dangerous operations while improving technological processes. The way to achieve this goal is to give the processing technology a new dimension based on the experience and knowledge of experts. Machine vision is one way to achieve this goal.Keywords: Metallurgical production, Machine vision, Laser, Hot strip mill, Rolling mill, Control, Automation
