Quality control system automation

RUSAL is improving production processes and finished product quality control systems using advanced technologies and control methods.

Developments are underway in the following areas:

- automation of surface quality control systems for small ingots using video systems, the possibility of eliminating the human factor during product acceptance, 100% surface quality control, integration with the casting line's ingot rejection system;

- geometric dimension control systems for slabs and billets with automatic registration of product parameters and surface quality control;

- creating and supporting the automation of methods for quantitative analysis of product macro- and microstructure quality;

- implementing automated metal purity assessment methods;

- MES of casting production with a single database of regulatory and reference information, including technological and regulatory documentation on production;

- creating virtual casting machine simulators with the ability to train personnel.
