Pannier Corporation has a long history of helping metal producers and processors identify and track their products. Reliable marking systems provide manufacturers with assurance that every product can be positively identified and tracked throughout every stage of production, inventory, and shipping.
Tracking Hot Steel with Bar Codes and 2D Codes
Pannier introduced the high-temperature printed metal tag to the steel industry in the 1980s, allowing metal producers for the first time to label red-hot products with bar codes. Bar coding slabs and billets at the caster allows for unmatched inventory control with durable, mistake-proof identification.
Pannier’s laser metal tag printers integrate seamlessly with Level 1/Level 2 systems and tags can be applied manually or with an automatic tag attaching system.
Steel producers realize savings through a reduction in inventory and shipping errors, the elimination of the need to scrap material due to mis-identification, and productivity increases by automating the marking and tracking processes.
