AluControl®

The road to a learning aluminum mill

AluControl® comprises proven modules of the X-Pact® electrical and automation systems and is especially dedicated to the process of aluminum production.

Digital commissioning of the automation already happens during the Plug & Work test. The simulation model – Digital Twin of the plant – allows pre-commissioning under realistic conditions. During the training of the customer’s staff in the test field of SMS group, the impression arises as if working on a real plant. The entire operation modes and processes are simulated in real-time and are visualized on the customer’s systems by using X-Pact® Vision.

The innovative X-Pact® Vision HMI concept, its forward-looking interactions, structures and communication channels within the plant automation ensure safe operator guidance and offer comprehensive tools for system maintenance, -diagnosis and trouble-shooting.

The vision of a learning aluminum mill, enabling an intelligent and considerably autonomous production, forces the future orientation. For that matter AluControl® focuses on the following aspects:

  • Flexible production planning with fluctuating, partly small batches meeting production deadlines
  • Intelligent process- and production analysis along the entire value added chain
  • Continuously meeting supreme product qualities and at the same time highest yield
  • Maximization of plant service life at minimum maintenance effort and low capital tie-up
