Production planning and monitoring
Superconductors transmit electric power with negligible line losses and have high current-carrying capacity compared to copper. This will make it possible to generate and transmit electricity in a resource-saving manner in future. For the efficient production of high-temperature superconductors Deutsche Nanoschicht GmbH, a BASF Group company, has developed a unique process.
The manufacture of superconductor tapes proceeds in multiple process steps and at different process speeds. To ensure that these processes can be conducted in parallel and on a continuous basis, meticulous production planning and monitoring are of great importance.
