Steel Manufacturer

Business Need

Steel Manufacturer Tube Mill, located in Fairfield, AL, required an RFID solution to more efficiently track Mandrel bar usage during the tube making process, as well as a more efficient method of performing tooling inspection.


ViziTrace implemented an RFID solution that included tagged Mandrel bars as they entered and exited Tube Mill, the ViziTrace Portal data with a Level II system to monitor bar usage, as well as ViziTrace Mobile used to perform bar inspections and track bars in and out of bar shops.


The solution resulted in more efficient and reliable tracking of bars, real-time information on bar status and reduction in errors associated with miss-identification of bars.
