β€œThe goal of digitalized roll forming is to replace the previous process monitoring, such as checking the dimensions afterwards, with automatic inline measurement to allow us to move from process monitoring to digital process control.” If this goal is achieved, we could be looking at up to four times the accuracy in production.
