• Quality Is Not an Act, It Is a Habit

    Ensuring Production Quality at Shop Floor

Quality is a critical topic in metal production and has replaced throughput as the primary goal in today‘s business operations. Aristotle once said, “Quality is not an act, it is a habit.” It determines the success or failure of any business. Therefore it becomes imperative for any organization to focus on quality not only for products but also for processes.



The following areas are covered:

  • Order Dressing

  • Quality Control

  • Deviation Management

  • Integrated Quality Management

Available for:

  • Flat products: slabs, heavy plates and coils

  • Long products: tubes, billets, wire rods and others

Being a complex field, metal production requires different areas to be considered to improve product and process quality. PSImetals Quality software includes many functions to support and improve different quality aspects of production, like feedstock quality, constant quality during the ongoing processes, routine material handling or correct execution of the individual process steps.

With our state-of-the-art tool all quality data and processes can be continuously captured, controlled and adapted, enabling online evaluation of current and future situations and ensuring constant, reliable material quality throughout the entire production process.
