Alunorf has been working for a number of years to maximise the effectiveness of the eleven Batchpilot units installed at the Neuss Plant.

They have concluded that to achieve accurate and reliable data on furnace and transfer weight they need take measurements on virtually 100% of their casts…80% or 90% is not good enough.

An article describing in detail the work and programmes carried out to achieve eventual success,culminating in conversion to fully automated units, was recently published in Aluminium Times and also presented at the 2018 Norcast Conference.

The article and the Conference paper were jointly authored and presented by MQP and Philip Meslage from the Alunorf team at Norcast.
