The Ecosystem
The EXTRUSION 4.0 Ecosystem consists of concrete solutions per production line and a unitary data collection and processing system. More specifically:
  • CYRUS Extrusion
    Installed just a few meters from the aluminium press, allowing for inline, early and real-time defect detection and alerting.
  • CYRUS Powder Coating
    Applicable in vertical and horizontal powder coating lines. Inline, real-time and color agnostic profile surface inspection and sorting.
  • CYRUS Packing
    Inline surface inspection and sorting on semi-finished and powder coated aluminium profiles.
  • EXTRUSION 4.0 Data Management System
    Cloud Industrial IoT platform, gathering surface inspection data from multiple nodes on the shop-floor. Provides historic data and surface quality smart reporting.

Defect Detection
CYRUS detects all categories of defects during the following production stages:
  • Extrusion
  • Powder Coating
  • Packing
The Technology
CYRUS introduces a holistic AI framework for the aluminium extrusion industry.

Different AI Layers serving defect detection from extrusion to surface treatment with high accuracy. Anomaly detection AI layer reveals complex recurring defect patterns and generates Smart Alerts for machine usage optimization, in real-time. Big data analysis results to high-level decision making, while the innovative Neural Networks are getting “smarter” though Active Learning best practices.

AI-as-a-service delivers Lean Manufacturing by reducing lead times and operating costs while improving aluminium profile quality.
