Primetals Technologies

Primetals Technologies will attend the SIS conference in Aachen to talk about its highly technological and innovative surface inspection automated system: SIAS®.

On-line surface quality control SIAS detects and automatically classifies all surface defects visible on the strip. The implementation of SIAS is simple and straight-forward and serves two purposes: to monitor the process and its impact on the strip surface and to collect accurate, reliable data on the surface quality of the products at final processing stage or at upstream production plants.

Successfully used  by leading steel suppliers and fitting most stringent quality control specifications for high-end markets (automotive, appliances) SIAS solution is operated on the whole chain of production: hot mills, pickling lines, cold mills, continuous annealing lines, metallic coating lines, continuous galvanizing lines, electrolytic galvanizing lines, electrolytic tinning lines, color-coating lines, stainless steel lines.

Come to our booth to see the SIAS and its latest references. SIAS, a small mechatronic package that can do so much for your production.
