Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) for ERW Pipe Plant
package provides a comprehensive system for measurement, monitoring and
tracking of process, production and quality related parameters in a Tube
mill and can be adapted to other discrete manufacturing industries. This
system was initially developed for a ERW tube mill manufactured by DMS
France and installed for Bakrie Pipes in Indonesia.
coil parameters such as Width, Thickness & Roundness and process parameters
such as Welding, Annealing, UST, Hydrotester and Lab tests for the pipes
and coils are measured using various sensors in the production line. The
process and quality data is collected online via PLC and PC network through
which all the processing stations are linked and networked. This information
is collected and saved for further analysis and report generation as per
API and ARAMCO standards.
tube tracking system is also an integral part of the CIM that helps track
the tube from the coil input stage to the finished pipes at the dispatch
end. Each coil/pipe is uniquely numbered and barcoded and tracked using
a network of Barcode readers at each processing station. Tracking and
genealogy of the manufactured pipes are generated meeting various stringent
controls and standards.
