Melt Shop Automation and Diagnostics
Our advanced melt shop automation, digital controls and equipment diagnostics are bringing Industry 4.0 closer than ever before and meet IOT requirements. Melt shop automation and diagnostics are critical to most foundry and melt shop applications to improve overall productivity. Automated systems allow foundries and melt shops to assist in the protection of their most valuable asset–their employees. While it is impossible to fully remove the risks associated with melting metal, it is possible to make melt shops a safer workplace by using advanced automation.
Having the ability to see information in real-time gives you the data you need to react immediately to changing conditions—anytime, anywhere. Our iSense™ melt shop equipment data visualization system is the only application on the market today that allows you to access nearly every detail of your melt shop in one place.
Inductotherm Melt Shop Control Systems enable you to take control by monitoring and controlling the melt, diagnosing faults, maximizing power usage, minimizing power/fuel charges and performing a variety of tasks.
By using automated equipment whenever possible–like Inductotherm’s ARMS® (Automated Robotic Melt Shop) Systems–melt shops are better able to keep personnel away from molten metal. Melt shop management must make safety a key corporate value and communicate that to the foundry workers by selecting the safest available equipment and by assuring that their workers are instructed in its proper use.
