Foy Inc has published a standard method of electronically transferring chemical composition data from a billet supplier to an extruder. Foy's EPICS V8.2 software has the capability of capturing this data, allowing the extruder to easily print the pertinent chemical composition on test certification forms sent to the extruder's customers.
While over 75 extruders using EPICS can make immediate use of this file structure, all extruders are encouraged to use this format.
Detailed information on this format and procedure can be downloaded below. Please contact ChemComp@foyinc.com with any questions or comments.
