Aluminum and other non-ferrous metals

ISRA Aleris 1.11 033

Advanced surface inspection along the entire production chain

With its complete range of powerful inspection systems, ISRA PARSYTEC offers full quality monitoring throughout Aluminum production and processing. Our systems are easy to integrate at every production step, from hot rolling to organic coating and foil inspection, blanking and extrusion. The collected data not only provides a solid decision-making basis for enhancing quality and processes but also leads to waste reduction.

The combination of sensors and specialized illumination technologies, whose parameters can be adjusted to meet specific application requirements, make it possible. High-quality defect data allows users to subsequently pinpoint the causes of defects.

Our solutions for aluminum, copper and other non-ferrous metals are powered by our brand:

Aluminum Inspection

Automatic optical surface inspection at all ALUMINUM production steps:

  • Hot Rolling
    Detection and identification of all quality-related defects early in the hot rolling mill, pinpoint their causes and correct them immediately.
  • Cold Rolling
    Reliably identification and classification, even of low-contrast defects with 100% inline inspection even at ultra high system speed.
  • Tension Levelling
    Detect even the tiniest defects in an aluminum strip, pinpoint the causes and avoid expensive production downtimes.
  • Organic Coating
    Measure the surface structure of organic coatings reliably with 3D inline surface inspection.
  • Litho
    Full and reliable inspection of aluminum surfaces coated with photo sensitive lacquer.
  • Foil Inspection
    Generate precise defect data and pinpoint defect causes, even by changing material properties.

Multistrand extruded profiles

ISRA PARSYTEC provides a fully automated surface inspection of extruded aluminum profiles on single and multistrand lines. The system’s reliable sensors detect every relevant defect in the earliest stage simultaneously on all visible sides of the product.

Profiles of different shapes and sizes can be inspected without a new system set up.

Blanking

Inspected intermediate products with reliable quality assessment are indispensable in the demanding automotive market. The complex geometries of blanked sheet metal are now inspected with smart automated quality control during blanking. High delivery quality can now be reliably guaranteed.

Unique inline surface inspection at the Coiler

Constant Pass-Line Distance technology is an add-on allowing inspection at the coiler, often the only available inspection position. The sensor maintains a constant distance to the inspected surface during the entire winding or unwinding process. This is the only way to ensure reliable inspection with a changing diameter of the coil.

Benefits

  • Leading surface inspection system for all standard applications in the metal industry
  • Typical payback period of just a few weeks due to easy setup
  • Prevents strip breaks 
  • Reduce maintenance costs and avoid upcoming hazardous situations and repair times
  • Avoid disaster events due to improved roll change
  • System sensor developed for harsh environmental conditions 
  • Fastest setup times: Classifier includes over 80% of all typical defect classes with its standard installation
  • Multiple-view-sensors guarantee high quality defect information for highest classification results
  • Cold Rolling: Hole, Shell, Rolled-Mark, Edge Crack
  • Blanking: Scratches, roll impressions, and scores
  • Strip edge defects

Precision inspection down to the µm level

Copper milling

Maximized yield on every copper and other non-ferrous metals line

ISRA PARSYTEC inspection systems offer extremely high precision monitoring of copper, titanium and other metals down to the micrometer level.

Our systems offer excellent detection at every process stage, even when inspecting different material finishes and structured surfaces. Even low-contrast defects are detected. High-quality defect data allows users to pinpoint and correct the causes of defects.

  • Milling
    Detect defects on the grinding or scalping line and determine both, the density and relevance of the defect.
  • Cold Rolling
    Classify defects accurately and correct their causes easily, even in the tight space of the cold rolling stand.
  • Annealing
    Reliably detect and classify furnace defects in the annealing line– only flawless material is processed further.
  • Foil Inspection
    Generate precise defect data and pinpoint defect causes, even by changing material properties.

Benefits

  • Typical payback period of just a few weeks due to easy setup
  • Prevents strip breaks
  • Leading surface inspection system for all standard applications in the metal industry
  • Minimize grinding or scarfing with early detection
  • Avoid disaster events due to improved roll change

Production analytics - Data-driven efficiency

The web-based production analytics platform allows you to check the system status of all production lines at a glance or analyze production data in detail. With the quality management system, you analyze historical data, monitor current inspection data in real-time, and identify future trends in your production process.

Early detection of production defects

Detect and quickly identify the cause of threshold value violations at every stage of production with live status information and automatic alerts. As a result you can quickly resolve production defects, shorten downtime, and reduce production costs.

Predictive maintenance

You can prevent potential system failures by analyzing real-time data from the sensors and monitoring systems. This allows proactive planning of maintenance, based on the actual condition of the machines, instead of following a fixed schedule. This data-driven approach saves costs through reduced downtime and increased overall productivity, as well as longer production line life. 

Optimization of production

Dashboards allow you to compare production line and product data onsite or remotely, providing key insights for optimization. This enables you to make informed professional decisions along your value chain to increase the product quality as well as profitability. You can continuously track the progress of optimization measures and present them with visualized advanced reports.

Your benefits

  • Time-saving multi-line overviews, one view for all quality-related information
  • Minimize downtime by monitoring system health data
  • Faster reaction to quality issues with quality data monitoring
  • Fast elimination of production defects, reduction of production costs
  • Improved maintenance for reduced downtime, higher overall productivity and longer production line life

Key Features

  • Overview on production data and plant status
  • Live insights from real time data
  • Department oriented dashboards, customer specific adaptations are possible
  • Web-based solution, no client software installation required
  • Threshold monitoring and alerting
  • Open to integrate relevant third-party data and export data to the customer's systems
