Alumil Group

With more than 30 years of experience and 2.200 employees, ALUMIL is one of the most advanced companies globally in the design and production of architectural aluminium systems, owning state-of-the art production lines in 12 factories across Europe. Alumil has fully adopted Extrusion 4.0 in the extrusion lines. The machine vision system has been deployed just a few meter from the press, allowing for full surface inspection, early defect detection and press operator alerting. Precise defect localization on extruded profiles along with production information, are synchronously uploaded to the cloud and big data analytics reveal scrap patterns and new ways to maximize revenue.
