Quality Tracking Project for steel coils


Welcome to the webpage of quality tracking for steel coils!

Upon request, 5 steel companies can provide you quality tracking of steel coils to help you to optimize your overall steel efficiency and to improve your digitization process.

The principle of quality tracking:

The quality tracking system uses unique 1D barcodes printed automatically along the coil at regular intervals – typically every meter. Quality information is then synchronized with the bar code to provide the position of a flaw. You may find more details in the e-brochure and the video.

Bar codes

European standard on quality tracking:

A draft European standard is going through the process of CEN and its publication is expected in 2019. This standard ensures a common technical language between steel suppliers and steel users.

EDI for quality tracking:

One way of sending quality tracking information from steel suppliers to steel users is using EDI. The EDI structure for quality tracking is harmonized between the 5 steel suppliers.
