EPCs have a pivotal role in the steel industry and are responsible for the delivery of sound project solutions. Their role is to ensure the successful execution of projects while meeting safety, quality, cost, and schedule objectives. SteelTrace digital solution can be beneficial in helping EPCs to reach these goals, while also ensuring traceability and transparency across the whole supply chain. In this blog post we share 10 ways in which the platform can specifically enhance EPCs processes.
Operators and EPCIs have challenges during the design phase, due to the extended supply chain and the uncertainty of the material supplied. SteelTrace may help you solving these design challenges by providing real-time data from the first provider of the supply chain.
SteelTrace, is pleased to announce a significant achievement in collaboration with Subsea7. This partnership marks a milestone as SteelTrace embarks on its first pipeline project in the North Sea, reinforcing its commitment to increasing efficiency and quality standards while meeting the digital needs of the operator.
In October 2023 SteelTrace had the chance of flying to Norway to attend the JIP33 conference.
We have decided to briefly share our main five learnings after attending the event.
We are glad to announce that UreaKnowHow.com has welcomed SteelTrace as its new solution provider.
To stay competitive and resilient, steel manufacturers need to continuously adapt their supply chain strategies to address challenges and keep pace with industry developments and technological advancement. In this blog post, we discuss 9 factors about the SteelTrace solution that can benefit manufactures in tackling their current challenges.
In the realm of business, data standardization holds significant value due to several compelling reasons. This is especially true for the steel industry for oil and gas. In this blog post we highlight 4 most important reasons why the implementation of a standardized format can help you.
Steelmaking is a complex process that involves several energy-intensive steps and which can generate significant amounts of carbon dioxide. McKinsey & Company indicates that one metric ton of steel produces 1.8 metric tons of CO2. New regulations focusing on sustainability are now requesting companies to reduce their emissions. For this reason, several players in the steel industry are actively looking for ways to decarbonize their processes.
Quality management plays a critical role in the steel supply chain, due to the requirements, standards, specifications and customer expectations. Quality Assurance and Quality Control are two key aspects of it, which despite having some differences, are both focusing on ensuring quality. Currently, quality managers faces several challenges, since the quality management processes are manual, time-consuming, and opaque processes prone to human error and unauthorised data manipulation. However, SteelTrace can resolve these issues.
In today’s fast-paced world, constant advancements and innovations are shaping the future of manufacturing processes in the steel industry. In this blog post, we will explore two crucial aspects that are revolutionizing the industry: the digital Manufacturing Record Books (MRBs) and the fight against counterfeit certificates. These developments hold great promise for enhancing efficiency, ensuring product quality, and maintaining the integrity of the steel supply chain.
Automated Ultrasonic Testing (AUT) is a non-destructive testing technique that uses ultrasonic waves to inspect the integrity of materials and detect flaws or defects. AUT involves the same components as manual UT (a transducer and a data visualization equipment), but the scanners move the probe(s) automatically. For MUT, the person carrying out the inspection is in control, whereas with AUT the parameters — i.e., speed and data recordings — are controlled through the AUT equipment, thus eliminating the need for inspector control.
