in Measuring Systems<br />

We at <strong>IMS</strong> <strong>Messsysteme</strong> <strong>GmbH</strong> see ourselves as a<br />

self-learning organisation whose corporate concept is<br />

geared towards a permanently high level of knowledge<br />

competence across all areas. The combined expertise<br />

of our highly qualified employees has formed the foundation<br />

of our globally unique product portfolio for over<br />

40 years:<br />

Non-contact measuring systems that are not only a<br />

decisive step ahead of the times, but also ahead of<br />

the competition thanks to their innovative measuring<br />

methods and individual designs. A market advantage<br />

that we can only achieve and permanently guarantee<br />

in close cooperation with our customers as<br />

partners.<br />

The concrete and very individual problems of our<br />

customers are our challenges for constant new<br />

developments of highly developed technology<br />

which, thanks to precise and at the same time<br />

robust mechanics, withstands the toughest conditions.<br />

Strong partners from research and technology<br />

complete our competence team. The result:<br />

precision systems at the highest level for optimally<br />

monitored processes in hot rolling mills,<br />

cold rolling mills, process lines and in metal<br />

service centres.<br />

20 of the 20 largest international steel and aluminium<br />

manufacturers rely on <strong>IMS</strong> measuring systems for<br />

their quality assurance.<br />

Productivity, flexibility, material and energy efficiency<br />

and, of course, cost-effectiveness are essential criteria<br />

for manufacturing process design in the steel, non-ferrous<br />

metal and aluminium industries.<br />

The guarantee of high, strictly defined product qualities<br />

for dimensional and shape tolerances, flawless surfaces<br />

and high-quality material properties must also be taken<br />

into account.<br />

In order to meet the ever-increasing quality demands on<br />

steel, aluminium and non-ferrous metal products, ever<br />

more precise and complex measuring technology is required<br />

to ensure compliance with the smallest tolerance<br />

values. The market demands precision systems that<br />

can not only be used for different materials and material<br />

thicknesses, but that also function digitally, networked<br />

and automated, as well as being able to be individualised<br />

in their hardware and software and integrated into<br />

existing process sequences.<br />

<strong>IMS</strong> measuring systems are based on radiometric, electro-acoustic,<br />

magnetic or optical measuring methods,<br />

which are rounded off by force measuring systems,<br />

control measuring systems and a high-performance<br />

quality management system.<br />

The result is an impressive variety of high-precision,<br />

perfectly coordinated and customisable measuring systems<br />

for the fulfilment of all relevant measuring tasks,<br />

which is unique in this scope worldwide.<br />

Today, more than 4,500 non-contact <strong>IMS</strong> measuring<br />

systems are an integral part of the production equipment<br />

of:<br />

• hot rolling mills<br />

• cold rolling mills<br />

• process lines<br />

• continous casting plants<br />

• tube rolling mills<br />

• metal service centres<br />

all over the world. Systems that measure precisely even<br />

under the toughest environmental conditions, show the<br />

results obtained visually in a clear manner and, last but<br />

not least, impress with their long service life.<br />

More than 750 satisfied customers in over 60 countries<br />

benefit from the performance of our high-tech measuring<br />

systems in the determination of:<br />

• width<br />

Origins in Radiometric<br />

Measurement Technology<br />

The actual origin of <strong>IMS</strong> business activities and<br />

products is the development of radiometric<br />

measurement technology in the late 1950s by<br />

AEG-Telefunken.<br />

The first radiometric level measuring system was developed<br />

there, followed by radiometric density measurement<br />

in the early 1960s and radiometric mass per unit<br />

area and thickness measurement in the mid-1960s.<br />

Due to an existing participation agreement between<br />

AEG-Telefunken and Hartmann & Braun AG (H&B), all<br />

activities in the field of radiometric measurement technology<br />

were transferred to the company H&B in 1967,<br />

laying the foundation stone for the type of “radiometric<br />

measuring systems” that are still used today in the production<br />

of hot and cold rolled tube and flat products.<br />

In 1979, the H&B board of directors decided to abandon<br />

the entire product portfolio of “radiometry”. The<br />

two employees at that time and leading capacities in<br />

the field of radiometric measurement technology, Paul<br />

Flormann and Bernhard Mengelkamp, then founded<br />

their own company in 1980, together with their colleague<br />

Hans Schneider as commercial support for the<br />

two development engineers. Considering the product<br />

portfolio of radiometric measuring systems at that time,<br />

the company name followed almost by itself:<br />

“<strong>IMS</strong> Isotopen Meßsysteme <strong>GmbH</strong>” was born.<br />

From pioneer to global player<br />

Since 1987, the headquarters of the company,<br />

which was renamed “<strong>IMS</strong> <strong>Messsysteme</strong> <strong>GmbH</strong>”<br />

in 1998, has been located in Heiligenhaus, NRW,<br />

Germany.<br />

More than 350 employees work on an area of over<br />

40,000 square metres spread over 9 buildings – including<br />

the in-house <strong>IMS</strong> Academy for customer training<br />

and education. From the development to the final shipment<br />

of our measuring systems, all processes and work<br />

steps take place there.<br />

Short lines of communication and the bundling of all<br />

competences guarantee dynamic workflows, which ensure<br />

the convincing quality of the customised measuring<br />

systems, especially in our three test bays during<br />

production, calibration and testing.<br />

As the world market leader for measuring systems,<br />

<strong>IMS</strong> <strong>Messsysteme</strong> <strong>GmbH</strong> has 11 branches worldwide<br />

– some of which are wholly owned subsidiaries – and<br />

is additionally represented by numerous agents around<br />

the globe in the usual customer-oriented, innovative<br />

and competent manner. Our aspiration is the complete<br />

satisfaction of our customers, which we guarantee not<br />

least through our 24/7 service.<br />

For us, having a global presence also means taking<br />

on global responsibility. <strong>IMS</strong> <strong>Messsysteme</strong> <strong>GmbH</strong> has<br />

been confirmed as a climate-neutral company by an independent<br />

certification company. We produce a large<br />

part of the electricity we need ourselves and, not least<br />

through the voluntary acquisition of environmental certificates,<br />

we strive to offset the CO2 footprint created by<br />

our business activities.<br />

But that is not all. Following closely the principles of<br />

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), we at <strong>IMS</strong> have<br />

launched the project “<strong>IMS</strong>ocial”, which is not only a<br />

conviction of ours, but also stands for our corporate<br />

philosophy.<br />

Our ambition is not only to make <strong>IMS</strong> products and<br />

customer relationships sustainable, but we have the<br />

same ambition for our social, ecological and economic<br />

responsibility.<br />

Hot Rolling Mills<br />

A key element of modern steelmaking is the production<br />

of hot-rolled strip.<br />

About 50% of the steel produced in the hot rolling process<br />

is processed into steel strips. Accordingly, not only<br />

maximum throughput and high availability are required<br />

from the mills, but also products with optimal material<br />

properties with exact geometries.<br />

The hot rolling forming process follows ingot or continuous<br />

casting. For this, the rolled material is heated<br />

again above the recrystallisation temperature to a temperature<br />

of approx. 1,200°C and then reduced to predefined<br />

thicknesses of 25 to 40 mm by pressure in the<br />

rolling stands of the blooming train. Since the original<br />

volume of the slab remains the same, the thickness reduction<br />

changes the length and width of the material.<br />

In the finishing line, the pre-strip receives its final geometry.<br />

Here, the strip is located simultaneously in all<br />

of the 5 to 7 rolling stands during the rolling process<br />

before it runs out at a final rolling speed of approx. 20 m<br />

per second onto the exit roller table. In the subsequent<br />

cooling section, which is about 100 m long, the mechanical<br />

properties of the hot strip are adjusted by means<br />

of controlled water cooling. Finally, the strip is wound<br />

into coils with a diameter of about 2 m on a coiler.<br />

For the production of flat products, hot strip rolling is<br />

one of the most productive solutions, offering the highest<br />

level of production and a wide product mix with<br />

excellent quality.<br />

Throughout the entire manufacturing process, precise<br />

control and regulation mechanisms, in conjunction with<br />

a higher-level process computer, ensure compliance<br />

with the tightest thickness, width and temperature tolerances<br />

over the entire length of the strip.<br />

The most important regulating instance within this closed-loop<br />

control is a high-precision measuring technology<br />

that immediately reports tolerance deviations in the<br />

running process to the Automatic Gauge Control (AGC)<br />

and Automatic Flatness Control (AFC) and thus has a<br />

direct influence on the fully automated readjustment of<br />

the rolling stands.<br />

Hot rolling mill operators of<br />

• continuous casting plants<br />

• casting / rolling mills<br />

• hot rolling mills<br />

• heavy plate and Steckel mills<br />

benefit worldwide from the large number of optimally<br />

coordinated <strong>IMS</strong> measuring systems for the precise determination<br />

of all relevant measured variables within the<br />

entire strip production process such as:<br />

• slab dimension<br />

• width<br />

• crop length<br />

• speed<br />

• length<br />

• thickness<br />

• thickness profile<br />

• temperature<br />

• flatness<br />

• 2D / 3D surface inspection<br />

• coil state measurement<br />

Precision technology that guarantees exact measurement<br />

results even under the most adverse environmental<br />

conditions such as heat, dirt and moisture and<br />

stands out for its impressive service life.<br />

Cold Rolling Mills<br />

Aerospace technology, automotive and shipbuilding,<br />

architecture, medical technology, household<br />

appliances – the areas of application for high-quality<br />

strip steels seem almost unlimited.<br />

The steel industry is developing rapidly and the demands<br />

for new, adapted products are also arising at<br />

ever shorter intervals. The economy demands new<br />

processes and materials in the steel industry, and the<br />

demands on the quality of the end product are also<br />

growing continuously. Cold-rolled steel strip is becoming<br />

increasingly important in this context. In order to<br />

be able to provide the processing industry with optimal<br />

base materials, the rolling processes are complex.<br />

The input material for the cold rolling process has already<br />

undergone initial deformation stages in the<br />

upstream hot rolling processes and, wound onto coils,<br />

usually only has a thickness of 4 mm or less.<br />

Depending on the application, these steels are rolled<br />

in the cold rolling mills, at room temperature, into thin<br />

sheet with thicknesses of 0.4 to 3.0 mm or into very<br />

thin sheet with a thickness of 0.12 to 0.49 mm, which<br />

is mainly used as a starting material for the packaging<br />

industry. In addition to the mechanical rolling processes<br />

of the steel, the desired processing properties are also<br />

adjusted.<br />

After pickling, the strip is cold rolled as an endless strip<br />

in a tandem mill or as a single strip in a reversing stand.<br />

The steel solidified during cold rolling must first be<br />

recrystallised by re-annealing to restore its formability<br />

for further processing.<br />

This is followed by skin-passing and finishing, in which<br />

the final material is inspected for surface defects and<br />

provided with corrosion protection.<br />

Throughout the entire process and its fully automated<br />

control for end products of the highest quality, measuring<br />

systems from <strong>IMS</strong> guarantee compliance with<br />

minimum tolerances.<br />

• conventional cold rolling mills<br />

• coupled pickling / tandem lines (PLTCM)<br />

• finishing lines<br />

• process lines<br />

• slitting lines<br />

benefit from our perfectly coordinated, highly precise<br />

and fully automated measurement technology for the<br />

exact determination of:<br />

• thickness<br />

• thickness profile<br />

• thickness edge profile<br />

• width<br />

• holes<br />

• pinholes<br />

• edge cracks<br />

• phase content<br />

• internal inclusions / shell defects<br />

• coat layers<br />

• flatness<br />

• evenness<br />

• 2D surface inspection<br />

• strip tension / web tension<br />

• speed<br />

• length<br />

Exactly reproducible measurements and evaluations in<br />

real time optimise your production lines and increase<br />

product quality while simultaneously reducing production<br />

costs and reject rates.<br />

In addition to their durability and impressive performance,<br />

our measuring systems also boast extremely<br />

user-friendly control and regulation software.<br />

The MEVIweb user software developed in-house by<br />

<strong>IMS</strong> convinced the juries of two renowned awards and<br />

has won both the iF Design Award and the Red Dot<br />

Design Award.<br />

Al<br />

Hot Rolling Mills<br />

Aluminium boasts an optimal strength-to-weight<br />

ratio, high energy efficiency, high tolerance to extreme<br />

temperatures as well as excellent forming<br />

properties and resilience.<br />

Thanks to all these positive properties, aluminium has<br />

become an indispensable raw material for the most<br />

important industrial sectors of our modern world in<br />

recent years.<br />

Aluminium is already used in all industries where<br />

weight savings, stability, a low coefficient of expansion<br />

and high corrosion resistance are required. The fields<br />

of application are manifold and form a cross-section of<br />

the most important industries in our globalised world.<br />

Another advantage of aluminium is its almost unlimited<br />

recyclability. Not least for this reason, many manufacturers<br />

rely on aluminium as a material in their productions<br />

as part of sustainability initiatives, because the<br />

recycling process of aluminium requires only 5% of the<br />

original manufacturing energy. This is a clear contribution<br />

to climate protection because CO2 emissions, and<br />

thus the greenhouse gas emissions generated during<br />

production, can also be significantly reduced. So<br />

there are many reasons why aluminium has become<br />

an indispensable raw material of tomorrow. In 2015,<br />

for example, more than 58 million tonnes of aluminium<br />

were produced worldwide; by 2021, this figure had<br />

already risen to around 68 million tonnes.<br />

The raw material for further processing is produced in<br />

aluminium casting and rolling mills. Here, in the first<br />

production step, impressive aluminium ingots are cast,<br />

which are then rolled into aluminium strips, trimmed<br />

and finally wound into coils.<br />

Each of these production steps is controlled and<br />

optimised through the use of high-precision automated<br />

measurement and control technology. The highest<br />

availability and reproducibility of all measurement results<br />

form the basis for an optimal, automated control<br />

of the production processes. Only through this 100 %<br />

automation is it possible to effectively increase output<br />

while simultaneously reducing the reject rate.<br />

For the production of flawless end products, our<br />

customers have a wide range of measuring systems at<br />

their disposal for the fulfilment of all relevant measuring<br />

tasks in:<br />

• casting mills<br />

• hot strip lines<br />

As standard, the product portfolio of measuring systems<br />

optimised for aluminium hot rolling mills includes<br />

solutions for the precise determination of:<br />

• slab dimension<br />

• thickness<br />

• thickness profile<br />

• length<br />

• width<br />

• temperature<br />

• speed<br />

• 2D surface inspection<br />

Customised special designs are of course also possible.<br />

Cold Rolling Mills<br />

Ever-tighter tolerance limits and high demands<br />

on the properties of the material – while at the<br />

same time maximising the output and productivity<br />

of production facilities – place the highest<br />

demands on the performance of the measuring<br />

systems used.<br />

The final starting material for the numerous industries<br />

that process aluminium products is produced in aluminium<br />

cold rolling mills. Strip products that are rolled<br />

down to the thickness of paper and processed into<br />

wafer-thin foils.<br />

Accordingly, the market demands innovative and<br />

technically advanced measuring and control technology<br />

to fulfil a wide variety of measuring tasks. Systems<br />

that measure, control, log and document with constant<br />

precision under even the harshest environmental<br />

conditions – and that during ongoing operation at strip<br />

speeds in the cold mill sector of up to 2,000 m/min.<br />

The product portfolio of <strong>IMS</strong> <strong>Messsysteme</strong> <strong>GmbH</strong><br />

offers an impressive range of state-of-the-art measuring<br />

systems optimised for the aluminium industry and<br />

optimally matched to each other, which already fulfil<br />

the most significant measuring tasks precisely in their<br />

standard versions.<br />

However, our interdisciplinary research and development<br />

team also develops, designs and manufactures<br />

customised solutions. Our measuring systems are<br />

rounded off by control and regulation software that has<br />

won several renowned awards.<br />

The robust housings of the systems, which are characterised<br />

by high long-term resistance even to aggressive<br />

rolling oils, form the basis for the protection of the<br />

high-tech measuring components inside them.<br />

Mechanics and technology, perfectly matched to<br />

each other, guarantee consistently high precision and<br />

stability.<br />

Positioned at all significant points in the production<br />

lines, the radiometric and optical measuring systems<br />

grant a detailed overview of the production process as<br />

well as concrete insights into the production result with<br />

the help of modern visualisations.<br />

Operators of:<br />

• tandem lines<br />

• cold rolling mills<br />

• foil stands<br />

but also downstream process lines such as coil coating<br />

lines benefit from our fully automated measuring<br />

systems for the measurement of:<br />

• thickness<br />

• width<br />

• length<br />

• speed<br />

• flatness<br />

• hole and edge crack detection<br />

• coating thickness<br />

• 2D surface inspection<br />

Heavy Plate Rolling Mills<br />

Hot-rolled sheets with a thickness of 3.5 - 250 mm –<br />

also called heavy plates – are probably the most frequently<br />

produced steel product in terms of volume.<br />

and plant engineering, the construction of cranes and<br />

containers, and the manufacture of heavy construction<br />

vehicles.<br />

High-quality heavy plates are defined by metallurgical<br />

precision, which guarantees high strength and toughness<br />

combined with low alloy costs and good weldability.<br />

However, precise adherence to the thickness across<br />

the full width of the plate as well as sufficient flatness<br />

are also important quality features to guarantee the accuracy<br />

of fit during subsequent machining.<br />

Manufacturers of heavy plate supply the basic material<br />

for the production of some of the most safety-critical<br />

applications and thus particularly demanding customers<br />

from a wide range of industries in which finished<br />

rolled products play an important role. These include<br />

power plant construction and shipbuilding, mechanical<br />

For the manufacturer, a plate mill consists of much more<br />

than the four-high mill stands used for the manufacturing<br />

process. Equally crucial in producing high-quality<br />

end products are the ancillary processes such as cooling<br />

and straightening, as well as controlling the rolling<br />

process for effective plant utilisation.<br />

Both in complying with the specified tolerances and in<br />

the automatic control of the manufacturing process,<br />

rolling mill operators for heavy plate benefit from the robust,<br />

high-precision measuring systems of <strong>IMS</strong>, which<br />

simultaneously optimise the output of the mills.<br />

Rolling Mills for Long Products<br />

Characteristic of long products is that their length is<br />

much greater than their thickness and width.<br />

Long products do not count as flat products because<br />

they are produced with a cross-section that is constant<br />

in length by rolling, drawing or forging.<br />

Continuously cast billets are used as input stock for<br />

long products or near-net-shape cast beam blanks as<br />

preforms for profiles and rails.<br />

In calibrated rolls, the heated pre-material is rolled to<br />

the final profile cross-section with as few rolling passes<br />

as possible, the straightness, diameter, contour and<br />

ovality of which are measured while still in the roll stand.<br />

In addition, our customers also have the option of a precise<br />

3D surface inspection in this area.<br />

The main customers for long products come from the<br />

construction sector, plant and mechanical engineering,<br />

shipbuilding as well as the commercial vehicle and automotive<br />

industries. Railway operators also require long<br />

products for the construction and maintenance of rails.<br />

PQF ® - / FQM -Mill<br />

PQF®- or FQM-Mill<br />

(Premium Quality Finishing Mill or Fine Quality Mill)<br />

The flowchart shows an example of the measuring equipment<br />

of a modern seamless tube mill. The material is<br />

formed in three stages: after heating of the bloom in a<br />

rotary hearth furnace in a rotary piercing mill (piercing), a<br />

PQF ® or FQM mill (elongation) and a Stretch Reducing<br />

Mill (finishing).<br />

Characteristic for a PQF ® or FQM mill in comparison<br />

to a conventional MPM mill (Multistand Pipe Mill) is<br />

use of hydraulically adjustable three-roll stands and<br />

a retained mandrel. Thereafter the shells are rolled to<br />

the respective finished tube dimensions required in<br />

a Stretch Reducing Mill comprising up to 28 stands.<br />

Adjustable finishing stands can also be used here.<br />

Metal Service Centres<br />

Production costs and dimensional accuracy are the<br />

most important criteria for effective and economical<br />

operation in Metal Service Centres.<br />

The perfect quality of the end product has top priority<br />

in the face of ever stricter customer requirements regarding<br />

ever tighter tolerance limits. These are challenges<br />

that have to be mastered daily not only in slitting and<br />

cut-to-length lines, but also in pickling lines, recoiling<br />

lines and inspection lines.<br />

The measurements and visual inspections of the final<br />

products regarding:<br />

• thickness<br />

• width<br />

• length<br />

• geometry<br />

• camber<br />

• flatness<br />

• evenness<br />

• surface defects<br />

which are still often performed manually, are critical<br />

factors that can have a negative influence on the setup<br />

times of the equipment.<br />

Both measurement with calliper gauges, micrometer<br />

screws or tape measures as well as time-consuming<br />

measurement on measuring tables using various<br />

different measuring devices to detect surface defects<br />

and ascertain dimensional accuracy involve a risk of<br />

measurement errors. Differences that have an additional<br />

negative effect on the quality of the end product.<br />

Transmission errors in data processing, which is also<br />

frequently carried out manually, represent a further, not<br />

insignificant risk potential that reduces the economic<br />

efficiency of the production process.<br />

Automation of the measuring tasks performed in Metal<br />

Service Centres and automated data storage of all measuring<br />

results offer an effective increase in production<br />

results.<br />

In this way, throughput times in production are shortened<br />

lastingly and adherence to even the smallest tolerance<br />

limits is guaranteed, thus minimising reject and scrap<br />

rates. Production lines equipped with such automated<br />

measuring technology work highly efficiently and economically<br />

and offer customers end products of the highest<br />

quality.<br />

<strong>IMS</strong> <strong>Messsysteme</strong> as the world market leader for<br />

non-contact measuring systems also offers Metal Service<br />

Centres an extensive product portfolio for various<br />

measuring tasks.<br />

Standard systems for:<br />

• centreline thickness measurement<br />

• flatness / levelness measurement<br />

• pinhole detection<br />

• sheet / plate geometry measurement<br />

• slit strip width measurement<br />

• width, hole, edge crack detection<br />

• surface inspection<br />

cover the most common measuring tasks. The focus<br />

here lies on optical measuring systems, namely our<br />

unique Camera Cluster Systems (CCS) specially developed<br />

for use in Metal Service Centres. Radiometric<br />

and laser thickness gauges round off the product range.<br />

But that is not all! As a strong partner, <strong>IMS</strong> also offers<br />

development of custom solutions. Please contact us if<br />

you are interested!<br />

All systems measure inline over the entire length of the<br />

coil and from the first to the last sheet.<br />

The <strong>IMS</strong> quality data management system MEVInet-Q<br />

stores all measurement data as well as production and<br />

order data continuously, thereby enabling exact tracking<br />

and verification at any time.<br />

For 100% quality assurance, your end customers can<br />

receive automatically generated quality reports for<br />

every product delivered on request.<br />

„Responsibility means to<br />

blame yourself for the lack of<br />

sustainability.“<br />

(Ronny Boch, geologist, free author)<br />

Conservation of resources<br />

through precision out of<br />

passion and quality out of<br />

conviction<br />

We at <strong>IMS</strong>, as the world market leader for measuring<br />

systems, are aware of our social responsibility of sustainable<br />

management!<br />

To give our customers, suppliers and stakeholders a<br />

transparent insight into concrete measures we have implemented<br />

in the <strong>IMS</strong> Group, we launched the project<br />

<strong>IMS</strong>ocial in close adherence to the principles of Corporate<br />

Social Responsibility (CSR).<br />

But for us at <strong>IMS</strong>, <strong>IMS</strong>ocial is more than just a project!<br />

<strong>IMS</strong>ocial is a belief and stands for the values of our corporate<br />

philosophy.<br />

After all, the sooner even minor defects – which in steel<br />

products can already render them useless – are detected,<br />

the faster machining processes can be corrected.<br />

And precisely this contributes significantly to active climate<br />

protection as it is no longer necessary to produce<br />

new products to substitute defective ones, thereby saving<br />

energy and water, and also reducing reject rates<br />

significantly.<br />

Learn more about <strong>IMS</strong>ocial and visit us at<br />

www.imsocial.info!<br />

We not only want to achieve sustainability in our products<br />

and customer relations, but also place the same<br />

demands on our social, ecological and economic responsibility.<br />

The first thought that comes to mind in connection with<br />

the non-contact measuring systems from <strong>IMS</strong> for the<br />

steel, non-ferrous metal and aluminium industries is<br />

certainly not one of active conservation of resources.<br />

However, our isotope, x-ray and optical measuring systems<br />

do exactly that: they save and preserve resources!<br />

The <strong>IMS</strong> product portfolio comprises numerous measuring<br />

systems and processes for various types of measurement.<br />

Our systems deliver and document exceptionally<br />

precise measurement results under the toughest<br />

conditions in hot and cold rolling mills as well as service<br />

centres. In this way it is possible to detect material defects,<br />

surface irregularities, tolerance and dimensional<br />

deviations and many other factors that, in the worst<br />

case, would lead later to material rejects at an early stage<br />

during the manufacturing process.<br />
