PIPE AND TUBE MARKING SOLUTIONS
SMARKTEC Tube and Pipe comprehends a range of fully automatic and integrated solutions that are designed not only to identify the single pipe with a unique number, but also to guarantee its full traceability throughout the whole manufacturing process, until the final stencil by using automatic data capturing systems.
The process begins marking the pipe on the OD at the line stencil, or after the saw. It then continues capturing the pipes’ ID with machine vision systems at the most critical manufacturing process, such as UT test, hydrotest or X-Ray test just to mention a few. Finally, the pipe is marked at the final stencil, on the ID, OD or ID and OD.
Depending on the type manufacturing process (seamless or welded) and on the pipe transportation mode within the plant, there are the following products available for marking:
