Eurotherm targets aerospace heat treatment shops with latest recorder
Called the 6180 AeroDAQ, this new recorder makes it easier for heat treatment shops to comply with AMS2750 Revision D, a subsection of the AS7102 audit that concerns pyrometry. AS7102 accreditation must be achieved in order for heat treatment shops to qualify for the Performance Review Institute's Qualified Manufacturers List (QML) under the Nadcap accreditation scheme. Membership of the QML is essential for any company that wants to supply major aerospace customers such as Boeing, Airbus and Rolls-Royce.
Eurotherm's 6180 AeroDAQ comes with a number of specialized mathematical routines that carry out calculations critical for heat treatment shops hoping to gain AS7102 accreditation. These include calculating due dates for system accuracy tests, temperature uniformity surveys and calibration, and providing warnings to ensure that critical dates are met.
AMS2750D also specifies the number of uses and days of life for load thermocouples. 6180 AeroDAQ includes routines that calculate thermocouple usage and set off alarms if they are in danger of going out of specification, as well as allowing the user to validate that all load thermocouples meet the usage specification prior to starting a treatment.
Both the due date calculations and the thermocouple monitoring features, together with their respective alarms, come preconfigured to allow the customer to meet the requirements of AMS2750D.
An optional batch reporting package fully automates the recording of each job, making it simple to generate the paperwork required by customers in the aerospace industry. It also does away with the traditional risks associated with mechanical recorders.
