Tvarit AI solution optimises Procast Guss processes

Iron foundry Procast Guss, based in Gütersloh, Germany, will in future cut its energy consumption using Tvarit GmbH's TiA AI solution. Simultaneously, its casting processes are to be further optimised systematically and scalably. The foundry intends in this way to tackle the current challenges to the foundry industry. "Rising energy prices are an existential threat to the foundry sector", emphasises Florian Feddeck, managing partner at Procast Guss GmbH. "The scarcity of skilled staff and the growing product-quality demands place additional burdens on us. We are pursuing totally new paths in tackling these challenges using AI." The TiA software detects quality deviations and energy losses at an early point and provides strategies for optimisation. This knowledge, once learnt, can be applied by the software to other machines and other products.

"We are impressed by Procast Guss's innovative spirit and their courage in rethinking existing processes", comments Jürgen Schmiezek, of Tvarit. "We look forward to supporting this company and to playing our part in shaping a sustainable future with zero-waste manufacturing"

Tvarit GmbH's solution was selected because it has been specially developed for the foundry industry. Unlike other AI instruments, this software also integrates into its computations physical parameters, such as metallurgical composition, rheology, solidification behaviour and component geometry. This enables it to describe the reality of casting processes with an accuracy of practically 100%.

"It is extremely difficult to master and control casting processes", notes Feddeck. "Humans are stretched to their limits. For this reason, innovations are pursued only slowly in this industry. But I am convinced: AI can help us a great deal." Using such a solution, even less experienced employees will be enabled to implement changes in real time and assure practically faultless production. TiA "conserves" knowledge on all facets of casting processes and expands it continuously. The longer the software is in use, the smarter and more accurate it becomes.
