With the latest agreement, ISRA/Parsytec proves again its leading technological position worldwide in the field of metal. The Business Unit Metal is one of the important strategic fields of expansion for the ISRA group. The cooperation project for surface inspection systems between Baosteel and ISRA developed out of high demand for quality optimization. For Baosteel, surface inspection and Yield Management count among the decisive factors. In addition to a common development of defect detection procedures, the cooperation agreement also contains the development of Yield Management software.

Besides outstanding references within the Baosteel group, modern inspection solutions with reliably high detection and classification rates were the deciding factor. This surface inspection is the foundation for further new systems that are scheduled to be installed in the scope of the project. The project comprises the installation, integration, implementation, and maintenance of ISRA/Parsytec surface inspection systems and the corresponding software in Baosteel’s cold rolling mills.

This latest agreement displays the high level of acceptance by ISRA/Parsytec customers and ISRA/Parsytec’s predominance in the competition in the metal sector. Today, all top ten steel producers worldwide are customers of the group.
