The FRP® Difference


– the special solution for any melt shop looking at reducing your “$$$-bill” !


In meltshops a lot of money goes up in smoke every day. Literally. Optimum melt-runs combined with cost-effective material consumption, reduced re-alloying quantities and steps as well as shorter melt times determine just how economical a meltshop is. Having efficient support for the melt process combined with well-functioning materials management and successful energy management are becoming more and more important as factors of success. This product which is available within the FRP® system standard either as an add-on for FRP or as a stand-alone solution with or without interfaces to third party systems, is a detailed planning tool focusing on the meltshop and the furnace operators.

We deliver a strong solution which asserts itself in several different disciplines:

  • Comprehensive planning of the melt process covering all melt and treatment steps – right through to when the charge or ladle is ready for pouring
  • Precise pre-calculations with material requirements calculations considering scrap, alloy components and metals
  • Optimization of material quantities for precise charges and re-charges (batching and rebatching)
  • Shortened melt-times and increased melt capacity by means of an integrated foundry information system displaying process instructions, furnace parameters, energy requirements, analyses etc. directly at the furnace
  • Reduces energy requirements per ton and thus reduces costs by supporting energy management at the point of highest consumption
  • Delivers traceability and process security by recording and archiving all process steps, analyses and consumptions within the melt report (audit-trail)
  • Comprehensive evaluations possible in the form of web-based forms and reports
  • Links to analysis devices and furnace controls for improved process integration
  • Integration of third party systems via standardised interfaces to maintain continuous mass and materials flow
