Computerized industry

Computers control the entire production process, both in the potrooms and the casthouse. Hundreds of industrial computers control pots, furnaces, casting machines, a water supply system, a gas cleaning system, ventilation, a power supply system and other systems. Hundreds of computer terminals are used at ISAL, and all are connected to a network. The industrial ones are connected to an industrial computer network, one of the largest in Iceland.
