In order to downsize high scrap rates, we installed on Alumil premises our system CYRUS, as part of the overall EXTRUSION 4.0 solution.
CYRUS is an innovative machine vision solution that uses Artificial Intelligence to identity defects and recurring defect patterns in real-time. Moreover, the system triggers smart alerts to the press operators on a 24/7/365 basis.
CYRUS identifies the following defects during the extrusion process: blisters, dents, scratches, pickups and rough surface. Defect detection takes place in real-time (less than 50msec) and with high accuracy.
The system records the defect localization map and saves the history record per meter and per runout, for all extrusions, to a common data repository. Big data analytics allow for business intelligence reporting related to the surface inspection while enabling yield optimization.
