Aluminium Quality Solution Map
The Aluminium Quality Solution Map introduces a significantly enlarged product and solution portfolio for surface quality oriented tasks - encompassing each and every process and production step from the caster up to can inspection. Tasks being supported include inspection, real-time, online and optimization solutions for better quality and higher throughput. The product portfolio consists of inspection solutions for the entire aluminium production chain and market. Whether it be hot rolling, annealing, coating or the finishing process – all are covered, just as well as automotive, can, and packaging applications.
One of the key objectives is that the solutions help make manufacturing both more productive and more cost-effective. By employing leading-edge inspection systems, the tools for process monitoring and for yield optimization, not only are the defects being recognized, but also the solutions can help pinpoint where and why the defects occurred. In this way, manufacturers are given important information enabling them to significantly improve their production and thereby achieve greater success. All systems integrate seamlessly into any process environment, providing perfect inspection and yield monitoring at all stages of production, leading inevitably to unbeatable product quality.
The benefits at a glance:
- Improve quality with accurate and reliable defect recognition.
- Reduce manufacturing costs by increasing line yield.
- Optimize production process.
- Reduce waste dramatically.
- Reduce process malfunctions and manual maintenance
- Validation against defined quality rules.
Increase processing reliability and productivity
- Reliable defect recognition, waste reduction and process optimization - get the most out of your production
- Optical process monitoring along the process chain, fully automated - for fast action
- Process analysis - trends and causes at a glance
