Advanced Surface Inspection System

Our Pickling Line uses Parsytec’s automated surface inspection system to detect and classify all relevant defects on strip steel surfaces. With our Parsytec system, we provide perfect inspection throughout the pickling process to ensure final product quality and to record any strip defects that allow our customers to optimize their manufacturing processes and increase production yields.

Our processes ensure stain-free finished material, and we have adapted our systems to handle a wide range of materials, including sizes and strengths that other processors cannot.
