- Targeting $100 billion global market of steel manufacturing/steel mill, petrochemical, green environment infrastructure (including incinerator and plant)

industries through the application of DX (Digital Transformation) Solution.


- Related to ESG, IRS Solution curtails carbon dioxide emission by optimizing energy efficiency.


- Globally renowned steel makers and top-tier equipment providers including ArcelorMittal subsidiary, and Danieli made a love call to EXCELLO.




A large number of special appliances are widely spread out to industries and in operation under extreme temperature and pressure conditions such as steel manufacturing/steel mill operation lines. The environmental distinctive characteristic of workers’ extreme working conditions is unimaginable unless someone encounters its local site under operation. Breaking news of shocking accidents people come across in everyday life is also derived from the inevitable extreme working environment in the industry. Safety accidents taking place unwittingly result from deplorable impressions of its victim.

Until the present day, these industries were not able to extract real-time equipment’s inside temperature and refractory erosion data, data that is closely related to productivity, without halt of its equipment. Since data do not exist, quantification and analysis of data were also unfeasible.


EXCELLO (CEO of Seung Jae Park, extracts real-time raw data (inside surface of equipment temperature data and refractory erosion status data) from special equipment exposed to a 1,600°C heat and pressure environment, which led to its world’s first successful development in an extreme environment utilizing and analyzing big data through edge computing system. In addition, EXCELLO developed a sustainable and recurring business model by providing data subscribing services based on its big data, instead of H/W provision business to its clients. EXCELLO’s solution increases energy efficiency and productivity through energy usage optimization and resolution of bottleneck processes.
