Steel tubes: production monitor

Summary

Two industrial partners are involved in this use-case: PTM – the steel tube machine tool manufacturer and FLEX – steel tubes producer that is using PTM machines. The current method that is applied for quality control relies on the operator evaluating tubes for defects. If defect is detected, the operator has to stop the production process and adjust production parameters, as defects are tending to propagate to the next tube being produced. This use-case has the goal of reducing the load on the operator through automation of quality checking tasks and producing the warning, if defect is detected. In this way, the risk of human errors is reduced through the introduction of the defects detection tools.

    Comment:

    The tools provided by ZDMP are integrated with the steel tube machines automating some critical quality check tasks, while improving the overall quality control process.
