LIMS Software for Metal Recycling and Trade Industry - Metal - Metal Recycling
In this sector, there are companies that work in fine metals, precious metals, or even tin bronzes. Although the application range varies a little according to the specific standards of every sub-industry, the composition of combinations and the precise determination of purity also play an essential role. To achieve data accuracy on the composition and purity of metals, companies in this sector use precise measurement methods, such as atomic emission spectrometers or X-ray fluorescence analysis.
A LIMS as a solution for data management in the metal trade industry
LIMS as a solution for data management in the metal trade industries means Laboratory Information and Management System and is a computer program designed to process, visualize, and archive a large amount of data. In metal trade, this IT solution supports many areas of the production chain, beginning with the receipt of goods and the corresponding supervisions. Control and measurement systems permanently supply data that are crucial in the further processes of storage or processing, the reason why many of these metal analyses are therefore automated. With the LIMS designed by Fink & Partner, you can import this data directly from various measurement devices thanks to the many open interfaces. Some of the compatible measurement instruments are produced by Bruker, Spectro, Hitachi, Thermo Fisher, and Zwick. This makes it possible to import data from the Spectro SPECTROMAXx or the Bruker Q4 Tasman, for example, directly and without any effort.
[FP]-LIMS has a sophisticated modular structure that enables to conduct of various analyses, which imply not just automatic importing but also manual one. This module is called SPC facilitates control, especially in automated production. It is also possible to configure the Fink & Partner system in such a way that it triggers an alarm if specific measured values are exceeded or not reached. Other important modules for this industry are the analysis and recipe management, as well as the quality inspection and ERP modules. In fact, since 2020 [FP]-LIMS supports the certified communication with SAP S/4HANA® and has, therefore, the proper interface.
