KLW is finishing new IT project for the creation of a fully traceable system at the new finish machining production site. Every finish machining operation of the wheel can be checked by scanning a special bar-code on a sticker.

The project aims to gather real-time data about processing modes and product characteristics. All information is stored in a centralized data base and can be provided for a customer at any time. The data can be checked via two bar-codes: by wheel ID, and by type of material.

Every piece of equipment is supplemented with a sensory terminal for data input, scanning and printing of a new sticker, if necessary. By scanning the sticker an operator can check all information about previous wheel processing.

KLW is planning to implement such system at every stage of the wheel production, from steel smelting to shipment.
