ChargeCalc Production Calculation

The ProdCalc version has modules for:

  • Melt planning
  • Charging calculation
  • Melt actions
  • Charged amount entry
  • Melt correction calculation (AdjCalc)
  • Spectrometer input.

The production cycle is started by entering a new melt into the Schedule.

You can prepare several melts in advance and also copy, delete and move melts.


The initial charge is calculated in ProdCalc module, called from the drop down menu in Schedule.
ProdCalc allows you to optimize the melt automatically and/or make manual adjustments, including adding recycled materials or other source materials.


At charging time, the smelter can have a printed weigh bill.
The actual amounts of charged source material is entered into the database with the Charged Amount Module.


When the melt is started in the furnace the melt status is signed and set as "Started" in the Action's Module.


Samples are taken from the melt and analyzed in the laboratory using a Spectrometer.
When using a Ametek Spectro instrument, a melt selection list is displayed on the instrument screen, this ensures that 
all necessary charge info is loaded into the spectrometer software without any typing errors.


After an analysis is finished in the spectrometer, the analytical results are saved and automatically transfered to ChargeCalc.
The adjustment module AdjCalc opens and displays the analysis.
After the adjustment calculation you save the result and perhaps print out a new weigh bill.
Enter the actual correction amounts into the database with the Charged Amount Module.
At pouring time, the melt status is set to "Pour".
Finally the status of the melt is set to "Accepted".
All production data is now transferred to the history log.
The melt will still be visible in the planning module for some days, available for comparison or for copying.
