User-specific software package for managing and documenting process and test data.
The "QS-MASTER" software allows access to data from IDECO devices, e.g. thermal analysis measurements and their additional data (VAC-TEST, spectral data, temperatures), to separate VAC-TEST measurements recorded with the DICON-BASE software, and to MELT-CLEAN treatment parameters from an "office PC" connected to the network. The measurements automatically transferred to the network by the connected devices can be searched for, displayed and analysed here.
It is also optionally possible to integrate data from the devices of other manufacturers (e.g. spectral analysis, tensile strength, hardness testing).
The central consolidation of a wide variety of test procedures gives the user a quick overview of the production process of a cast part and ensures straightforward traceability of the product with its defined quality characteristics.
Reliable, statistical quality data can be used to determine dependency.
Individual quality characteristics of production (furnace, temperature, production time, melt treatment), the batch (alloy, density, grain refinement, modification, spectral values) and the strength test can be made mutually dependent and analysed. It is possible to repeat the casting success or identify targeted (knowledge-based) improvement potentials, in order to optimise the casting process.
For installation on the customer's own "office PC". Existing devices are ideally networked with the "office PC" for this purpose.
Individually adapted add-on modules can be embedded in the software (e.g. for the production and management of acceptance test certificates or "TA-Energy").
If data from "non-IDECO" devices are integrated, this always takes place via converter software that has been individually adapted to the third-party data (e.g. "spectral transfer").
The "TA-Energy" add-on module is embedded in the "QS-Master" software.
This enables a detailed analysis of the cooling curves of thermo-analysis measurements, e.g. for research purposes or for test series by means of the derivative functions and the energy coefficient.
Cooling rates and inflection points are particularly evident for alloying elements such as Mg and Cu.
The following additional functions are provided:
Individually developed module for the production, documentation and printout of acceptance test certificates using the data inventory of e.g.: spectral, tensile test‑, hardness, thermal analysis, VAC-TEST devices, etc. available in the software "QS-Master".
