Alucast specialise in the casting and manufacturing of lightweight aluminium components for various industries including the automotive industry. Technologies include die casting, pressure casting, sand casting and machining.
Alucast are looking to capture real time shop floor data to assist in the production efficiency. They are looking for support to guide investment into both software and hardware. The intern will work with engineers to ensure all data is integrated between the shop floor sensors.
Detailed scope of work with objectives, targets and deadlines that the intern would be required to carry out:
Ideally candidate should be interested in fast paced manufacturing and willing to explore software requirements and solutions. They should be confident to engage with staff at all levels in the business and interface with third party providers.
Adoption of new digital technologies to give real-time visibility and reduce response times to changing customer priorities. Initiatives include capturing live data from the machine shop, tracking WIP throughout foundry, automating processes and adopting IoT technology into manual processes.
To provide efficiency improvements and real time visibility of the machine shop. Currently response to CNC machines breakdowns are slow which can impact "on time delivery" to customers. Real time visibility will reduce response time by 12 hours resulting in availability increase to 90%.
