Supervision of re-melting process for aluminium market

STATIONS DIAGRAM

Example of available stations for a single line

WHAT IS CAST HOUSE?

CMS is part of EMS Ecosystem designed to control and monitoring the production execution of aluminium re-melting department. It covers raw material reception, melting, casting, homogenization, cutting, packing, laboratory and more…

FULL TRACEABILITY BY CAST NUMBER

History of quantity and process data collected at each operation

The system creates a CAST ID PASSPORT:

• List of completed operations (melting, casting…) • ID assignement for every single LOG • Operators at the station • Good and scrap quantity each operation • Time spent for each operation • Gas / energy consumption for each operation • Scrap material loaded in melting furnace • History of chemical composition quality controls • Scrapped logs by reason • Technical scrap during cut process • Final packages created

HISTORY OF ALL PROCESS DATA FOR DEEPLY ANALYSIS

All required process data are stored for each operation

• Loaded scrap • Process time • Temperature chart • Gas consumtion Nm³ • Electricity consumtion • Dross scrap • Chemical composition

• Chemicals corrections • Process time • Temperature chart • Gas consumtion Nm³ • Electricity consumtion • Dross scrap • Chemical composition

• Process time • Furnace/lauder bath temperature °C • Casting table temperature °C • Casting speed mm/min • Water temperature °C • Water flow m³/h • Pit level mm • Metal level mm • Air flow m³/h • Argon flow m³/h • Process gas flow m³/h • Argon pressure bar

If available, only OK | NOT OK

• Process time • Homogenization and cooling chart °C • Gas consumtion Nm³ • Electricity consumtion

•Process time • Technical scrap • Electricity consumtion

• Process time • Package content details
