The energy industry uses steel for many different applications, and steel products are subjected to different operating conditions such as high temperature, high pressure, fatigue etc. This is why the steel products used in these applications need to be strong, durable, and resistant, and material testing is a crucial task in quality management.
Quality management of steel in the oil and gas is on the verge of a big change. New technologies automates a lot of the work previously done by experts. On the other hand the operator’s ambitions on digital twins to enable things like turn around simulations require quality management to become more data management. Data capture, quality management and supply chain will become more closely linked together.
SteelTrace is introducing violin plots on its platform. Violin plots are very similar to box plots but have some extra advantages. In this blog post we will discuss the differences between box and violin plots and why they are useful for a platform like SteelTrace.
We know why we want a digital twin. Things like predictive maintenance, unmanned facilities, root cause analyses, simulations for turn around planning etc. Here are 6 data points you might want to add to your digital twin solution.
We compared for the first time two processes, making a cake and making a weld joint, that could sound very different, but that surprisingly have very similar steps. This blog post will show you the similarities.
SteelTrace is introducing histograms and box plots for the order page. You can generate histograms on the hardness, tensile and impact values and filter down by PO item, heat, or heat lot. We are also working on histograms for the pipe dimensions for the next version…
In the steel industry are many of standards and requirements that material need to comply with throughout every step of the supply chain. This can slow down processes and increase the chance of errors. But then how can we increase the efficiency and reliability of the steel supply chain? In this blog post we’ll discuss our solution.
Welding procedure are performed according to predetermined standards and codes. The Welding Procedure Specification (WPS) and the Procedure Qualtification Record (PQR) are two important documents for the welding process. In this blog post, we share 5 tips you can use when making welding procedure documents.
NDT methods are important testing techniques that are used in the steel industry to ensure quality of materials and products. But it can sometimes be challenging to read the extensive reports. In this blog post, we will tell you about 6 things that you should look for on NDT reports
The Fourth Industrial Revolution, Industry 4.0, is transforming all industries and how they operate. But what do we mean when we talk about Quality 4.0? How does it differ from traditional quality management? And what are its implication in the steel supply chain? In this blog post we’ll answer all these questions.
We are happy to announce that SteelTrace has recently made an important update in the mobile app. It is now possible to use biometrics authentication to login into the app and sign certificates.
