  Component Management System
Every rolling mill, regardless of type, contains a large inventory of expensive rolling equipment. The discrete parts are numerous including housings, drive trains, rolls, chocks, rollneck bearings, hydraulic units and precision flat bearings. It is common practice to record and track these parts using spreadsheets or similar electronic documents which, once copies are sent to other individuals within an organization, quickly become out-of-sync with one another. These documents can also be difficult for others within an organization to access when the "master" is stored on a single PC, limiting their usefulness in situations where quick, easy access to the document is necessary.

CMS

Our Component Management System ("CMS") makes optimized administration and usage of your mill components possible using a combination of an advanced identification technology coupled with an electronic component management solution. The combination of these two technologies ensures accurate component identification and inventory tracking as well as easy access to accurate and up-to-date information.

Radio Frequency ID tags ("RFIDs") are attached to mill components being tracked so that a reader can be used to instantly identify parts. These tags are small chips which are powered by the radio waves directed at them from a reader and respond by transmitting back a unique serial number. Not only are the parts automatically identified, compound components such as a fully assembled chocks are group together for tracking. Checking items in and out of production is fast and easy using either a handheld or mounted RFID reader during assembly or disassembly (roll changes included). This data is transmitted to the CMS system where additional data such as date and time stamps are automatically added so that you can see historically which parts were used when. When correlated with other tracked data such as rolling campaigns, roll changes and output quality an extremely accurate picture can be created of how individual components performed during certain periods and how combinations of components affected production.

CMS serves as a clearinghouse and repository for all the complex data regarding your important rolling assets. It also provides an integrated framework for a wide range of services for measurement, testing, data interpretation and calibration. Integration into your existing ERP or PPS system is also an option allowing for correlation of the data at a level not possible using traditional spreadsheets or paper tracking forms.
