Enhancing performance of aluminium recycling furnaces beyond Industry 4.0

 



 

Moving towards the fourth industrial revolution, GHI Smart Furnaces has launched its own analytics services, called Beyond 4.0, for capturing and exploiting relevant data of industrial processes and convert it into deeper engineering knowledge. 

The platform is aimed to detect operational anomalies, identify usage inefficiencies, ensure furnace performance and track traceability and quality metrics. These data are used to adapt equipment behaviour to customer needs, adjust maintenance practices to machinery degradation, and establish energy-saving policies.

Furthermore, Beyond 4.0 enables moving from data-driven insights to data-driven actions by offering advanced services, such as smart production support and smart preventive/predictive maintenance.

The article published by Heat Processing sets out evidence on how GHI has leveraged its experience and know-how in process and equipment in the aluminium industry based on advanced data analytics.
