Predictive control of the manufacturing process of metallic components.

Ensure the efficiency and the outcome of your manufacturing process thanks to Model Predictive Controls and Artificial Intelligence.

Control your process, manufacture without defects.

Sentinel® is the predictive control system for metallic components manufacturing processes that, based on predictive control models and artificial intelligence, prevents defective manufacturing.

To achieve this Sentinel® detects any deviation happened in the production process and proposes the corrective actions to be implemented to ensure a quality outcome.

Monitoring and analysis

The data generated in the different areas and stations of the plant are collected, correlated and contextualized so they add value to the control of the process. As a result, they favor informed decision-making.

Prediction of results

Starting from the data retrieved in real time and the aggregate information, Sentinel® uses Artificial Intelligence techniques to make predictions and generate alerts about the quality of the process and the expected results.

Manage and improve

As a good controller, Sentinel® detects when a problem may appear and is in charge of calculating the best corrective actions that will prevent the appearance of problems during the manufacturing process.

System characteristics

The necessary data, in the right hands at the right moment

Sentinel® platform adapts to differ metallic materials (aluminum, iron, steel) as well as to different manufacturing processes (foundry, HPDC, LPDC, forging, stamping).

Highly compatible

Sentinel® systema is prepared to be installed from scratch or to adapt to the systems already implemented in the plant, also adjusting to the characteristics of the databases used. Its display system can also be deployed in different operating systems from Windows or GNU/Linux families.

Tailored system

Sentinel® focuses on the specific goals and/or objectives set by each plant, as well as on the needs presented by each production process. Thus, in addition to adapting the models and their operation, Sentinel® allows adjusting the control panels to the needs of each user, equipment or area.

Secure and easy to use

Sentinel® allows data to be kept within the company’s own network and prevents its knowledge from being extracted through the encryption of its predictive models. In the same way, the use of Sentinel® and the interpretation of the results and notifications provided does not require expert knowledge.

Re·Thinking Metallurgy

«Our work is aimed at mastering the physics and the chemistry that govern the behavior of metallic alloys, the phenomena that take place during manufacturing processes and the conditions that affect the useful life of metallic components.

We rethink metallurgy to develop more effective, efficient and sustainable manufacturing processes that favor the manufacture of components with enhanced properties and that open up new fields of application».
