Success Stories

  • Development of Industry 4.0 optimization strategies for the aluminium industry. Implementation of strategies (digitalization, IoT, BigData) in order to optimize aluminium extrusion line performance.
  • Implementation of Very Fast Alloys: In this customer a net productivity gain of 25% was achieved for the whole plant. (2017 vs 2018). This increase came also associated with an overall better surface finish of the extruded profiles.
  • Whole fabric productivity improvement: Assisting with optimization strategies the customer achieved 6% increase in net productivity gain for the whole plant with 4 press lines. (2016 vs 2017).
  • Optimized aging lines: in order to increase their capacity. Improvement achieved was 20% more throughput of the aging lines. This improvements also incorporate a reduction of operating energy costs since the total time of the aging cycles were reduced by 20%.
  • Mechanical properties troubleshooting and need reduce the variation. The customer initially had hardness variations from Webster 9-12. We were able to reduce the variation to W 11-12.
  • Project management assignment: The project consist of refurbishing an old cast house. Replacement of the whole melt treatment treatment equipment/process and installing a new continuous homogenizer. The main goal of the project will be to supply billets with as good quality as the main suppliers (Alcoa and HYDRO). Total cost of project 3,000,000 euros.
