OVERVIEW

The customer’s manufacturing process takes raw aluminum billets and uses a cold rolling process to produce rolled aluminum goods. A throughput bottleneck was identified at the cooling station as the existing temperature measurement process required the crane operator to climb down from the crane regularly and perform direct measurements on the rolls.

An Aluminum Company has been a state-of-the-art manufacturer of aluminum sheet products in a commodities business since 1983.

A SensiNet wireless temperature monitoring system was deployed to automatically monitor the temperature of rolls in the cooling rack every minute. The operator can access the temperature information, and move the materials when the correct temperature is reached, thus eliminating the need to make manual measurements.

Real-time temperature data
IOT
Mature (technology has been on the market for > 5 years)
OPERATIONAL IMPACT
A real-time wireless temperature monitoring system provides a status report on the temperature of rolls in the cooling rack every minute.
Cloud aggregation of 'big data' enables more robust analysis.
QUANTITATIVE BENEFIT

The customer's plant throughput increases by 6 million pounds of rolled aluminum per year.

Payback on the SensiNet system was 3 months.
