alcemy for cement: from reactive to proactive quality control using machine learning

Our AI software for intelligent quality control is the tool for producing cements of the highest quality. With this new approach, we support manufacturing companies in managing increasingly complex cement formulations for a more climate-friendly future.

manner of function

Based on a continuous analysis of quality-relevant data from chemistry, mineralogy and particle size distribution, our intelligent algorithms provide target values for optimizing current cement production to desired quality parameters for the control center or expert systems.

co-grinding

separate milling

Automatic transmission of the analysis values of the current grinding or mixing

Our models predict quality characteristics such as compressive strength and Blaine of the current grinding or mixing

Our optimization algorithms find optimal target values for fineness or recipes to achieve the desired target properties

alcemy transmits setpoints to control station or expert system

"alcemy simplifies my daily work routine as all the setpoints are always up-to-date and in one place, thus eliminating any misunderstandings. I am a great fan of their software."

Markus Bollich, control station driver at Spenner Cement Erwitte

Advantages for our customers

20-50% lower strength standard deviation

3-8% cost reduction per tonne of cement (savings in grinding energy or clinker and emission certificates)

Tool for a deeper understanding of building material quality and simplified, paperless workflows

Additional revenues through increased customer satisfaction and stronger customer loyalty
