Incoming ingots to the castor often have varied properties / chemical combinations. The ERP needs to record these properties. These records form the essential inputs while charging the batches.
In the Extrusion Industry, the optimization of output from billet is a key to financial success. The Optimization engines need to manage / optimize the outputs from individual billets of metal.
The metal processing industry is one of the few industries where the management and accounting of the scrap are crucial to the profitability of the manufacturing of the product. The management and accounting needs to be an integral part of the ERP system.
Minor variations in the size of the die can lead to uneven sections being extruded. Further over used dies leads to thicker sections being extruded too. This not only causes deviations from specifications / requirements, but also leads to huge loss of material.
Quality Control at the Casting stage – The molten material and cast billets are tested for parameter for the required alloy. Recording of this can help in analysing the composition of charging material to provide perfect quality. The QC can record the purity/impurity of rejected output. Quality control at the extrusion (upto ageing) stage and in the value addition stage (Anodising & Powder coating).
