Quality in the package

Production process

In processes characterised by a high degree of automation, BILSTEIN’s zero-defect strategy demands smooth process control and secure quality control. This is achieved through continuous monitoring and documentation of all defined process parameters. This is the only way to consistently maintain the highest level of productivity and quality in cold strip production.

BILSTEIN’s quality management begins even before the basic material enters our manufacturing process, which is supported by PDA (production data acquisition)/CAQ (computer-assisted quality control). It begins when we procure the hot-rolled strip. From the moment production begins, the material is subjected not only to identification testing but also material sampling and analysis. This process is the first step in a quality management system that accompanies every aspect of production - from slitting the hot strip to punctually delivering the cold strip to our customer’s production floor.
