Die casting is a scientifically driven, thermodynamic process from which we can extract critical process data. Critical casting process parameters are determined using our proprietary “CPIQ2 Casting Sciences” methodology. These parameters are then used as appropriate parameter limits that are to be maintained during production.
Once in production, these limits are monitored by two separate systems running in parallel. First, there are monitoring systems built into each casting machine. Second, casting process parameters are also being monitored at the enterprise level using our proprietary “Statistical Monitoring and Reporting Technology” (SMART) system.
