08 Nov Manufacturing at the Speed of Light: How Schwering & Hasse Monitors in Real-Time

Manufacturing requires precision. Manufacturing 140,000 kilometers of wire per day is akin to the pursuit of perfection. Schwering & Hasse employs 400 production lines 24 hours a day to manufacture enough magnetized copper wire each year to stretch beyond Venus. They are a Progress Apama customer and we are proud to assist them in their pursuit.

During the manufacturing process, even the smallest temperature variation can result in critical errors and lost production.  S&H came to Progress Software looking for a powerful yet customizable quality management solution. Progress Apama gives S&H the ability to monitor dozens of independent quality factors in real time – up to 50,000 production events per second. For example, Apama enables S&H to be aware of specific machines, copper lots, workers and production parameters such as temperature – all in the context of historical manufacturing data.

After deploying the Apama-based quality management system, S&H’s factories are monitoring quality every 25 millimeters – a fast improvement over quality checks at every 100 meters previously. This means fewer mistakes, higher yields and better margins.  All thanks to affordable, real-time quality control.
