AMETEK Surface Vision's New Aluminum Cold Mill Application Note

Thursday, August 8, 2019

AMETEK Surface Vision has released a new application note which discusses how effective quality control at the aluminum cold rolling stage can protect from claims and reduce costs throughout the production process.

Aluminum Cold Mill - Application Note (EN)

Cold rolling is an important part of the manufacturing process for thin aluminum strip and sheet. The speed of the cold rolling mill and the hot, wet environment (which leads to steam) makes manual inspection very difficult, allowing control and inspection only at the beginning and end of the coil. However, these factors can also present challenges to an automated system.

AMETEK Surface Vision’s SmartView® system provides an effective solution that overcomes the difficulties of the cold mill process to deliver reliable, highly sensitive defect inspection in real time, supported by streaming high-definition video that allows re-inspection without re-coiling.
