BeyondAlea: The New Digital Platform for Efficient Management of the Metal Melting Process

Beyond Alea computer

AMV Solutions, GHI Smart Furnaces and GECSA take a step forward to bring 4.0 technology closer to foundries, creating BeyondAlea, an innovative product that fully manages the melting and alloying process in steelworks, aluminium recycling plants, as well as in casting plants for iron and other metals.

The alliance of these three firms, with extensive experience in the 4.0 industry and the metal sector, results in a new digital platform for the foundry industry.

The BeyondAlea platform applies Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence techniques to achieve a Digital Twin of any melting plant.

Monitoring and Process Control

BeyondAlea is a modular platform that covers the entire production cycle of any type of foundry. The platform covers and monitors the entire process, from the raw materials purchasing and equipment management up to the final product quality control.

It allows achieving complete traceability and reducing the risk of defects, as it can correct anomalies in real time.

The BeyondAlea platform allows companies to have:

  • Advanced Sensorization: Specifically designed sensors along the whole process that automatically report data to the information systems.
  • Monitoring: Monitoring of the production process and detection and correction of anomalies in real time.
  • Charges Optimization: Lower cost charges, considering the variability (composition, availability, cost) of the raw material and the final specification of the alloy.
  • Scheduling: Process planning adapted to the plant’s workflow. Accurate control of capacities, equipment availability, and operation times.
  • Quality Improvement: Reduction of faults, real-time corrections, and consistent final product thanks to the continuous improvement of the chemical precision and complete traceability.
  • Machine Learning: BeyondAlea learns from production data to predict the behavior of raw materials and power profile to reach the full potential of the plant.

Smart Foundry

BeyondAlea applies 4.0 technologies in sensoring, capturing, and analyzing data in real-time to maximize metal yield, minimize costs, and process times on a single platform.

The use of data analysis and machine learning techniques allows users in the metal sector to ease decision-making, as the system can automatically learn and correct itself with the generated data of the casting process.

This continuous improvement enables total process control, resulting in a more consistent and homogeneous final product with stable chemistry and a significant reduction in the use of raw materials, energy, and melting times, leading to substantial economic savings for customers.

Experience in Process and Equipment

BeyondAlea, the new 4.0 platform for the foundry industry, is the result of extensive experience and research conducted by the three companies, aiming to achieve an intelligent and efficient foundry that aligns with and anticipates market demands using available technology.
