MARK 400 – Unique Serial Number System
Continuously increasing demand from the automotive industry for documentation and traceability of all production
steps will require a unique serial number for aluminium wheels in the near future.
Consistent documentation of critical characteristics and a zero-fault demand in production and logistic are the actual requirements from the car manufacture. To follow this complex guidelines, NUMTEC has developed a serial number system with MARK400 / CAM200 for full traceability of aluminium wheels through the entire production process. Optimized for the special demands and requirements of an aluminium wheel production process, the system enables in combination with a database system new possibilities. With our CAM200 camera systems based on industrial PC equipment we can read wheels on the fly with a speed of up to 30 m/min. on a conveyor. As the system will usually be implemented into an already existing plant, we have designed our MARK400 for an absolute minimum of floor space required. All necessary safety equipment is directly implemented in the MARK400 machine, no external fences or protection is necessary.
- COMPLETE SYSTEM FROM ONE SUPPLIER
Marking machine and reading system are a combined package from NUMTEC.
- UNIQUE SERIAL NUMBER
Each wheel has its own, unique serial number. The wheel is fully traceable from the casting process to the final packaging and delivery.
- PERFECT TRACEABILITY
Production faults and problems can be traced back to single machines and production steps on a wheel to wheel basis.
- HIGH RELIABILITY
After marking process ensures 100 % readability of wheels released to further production
- READING ON THE FLY
The wheels will be read during normal movement on the conveyor with a speed up to 30 m/min.
- DATA SAFETY
All CAM200 reading systems are equipped with SSD drives and an integrated database system to avoid any data loss during network interruption in the plant system.
