Marking and Packaging

Marking and Packaging

Packing and marking a steel product is an important process. We take utmost care that proper practices are followed, and the items reach our customers safely. We spare no cost to ensure that the right people carry out both these processes. We consider it our moral obligation that the product, which leaves our warehouse, is the same as the one you receive.

We ensure that all our products are marked so that they can be identified based on their serial numbers, production date, product codes, fountain, and information of the item or the combination of all the factors. This gives an insight into any product liability, warranties, retreats, goods substitution, inventory management, or checking problems in the supply chain. These markings are widely seen in products utilized in automotive industries, agricultural production, spare parts, medical equipment, aerospace, electronic systems, computers, etc.

The markings on the systems also outline whether the regulatory requirements of an item are properly followed. They provide guaranteed compliance with several industrial standards, which are necessary for supplying and producing a particular component. While transporting toxic components it is important to evaluate whether certain pipes and tubes can safely transport them without creating a catastrophic incident.

Below are a few methods used to mark different types of metals. Within these systems, a particular seal or symbol is painted on the surface of the component, which allows it to be identified.

Metal die stamping
In this process, machines are programmed to press the surface of the component to form a design. The EN 10253-1 butt weld pipe fittings are usually marked using this procedure.

Dot Peening
This is a special type of method, which makes use of a pin to mark material. It uses a series of lines, angles, or curves each, at different depths and orientations.

There are several coating methods used to mark different products. The coating doesn’t get rusted or is washed away after long periods. This method is common for DIN and EN standard items

The method is employed in marking different surfaces, which require more time to obtain a deeper and durable mark. They are less effective compared to other methods and are not preferred for uneven surfaces.

Material packing is an important element, which enables products to be transported from place to place effectively. They help protect the items against environmental and physical falls that a component may be put through during the transportation process. We utilize shrink-wrapped pallets, cardboard boxes, wooden sheet boxes, pallet banded, polypropylene sacks, and Flexform packing to transport all our components via roadways.

The items we ship through maritime routes are packed using high-quality material, which provides it with additional strength to suffice harsh conditions. The cargo handling systems in several ships are poor which, further increases the chances of damage. This is why thicker sheathing is utilized to pack the products.

Crates and cases with weights up to 10,000 kgs are used so that forklifts can easily lift them. Furthermore, their weight prevents them from skidding or moving on the ship. The contents within them are covered with plastic waterproof foil, which is sealed using a simple weld. Apart from this, moisture absorbent silica gel is utilized for added protection. Cellophane paper, polyester cutting is also used inside crates having higher loads to give them good padding and cushioning.

Materials that are susceptible to corrosion during transit are painted and coated based on their specifications. Bright and machined parts are also coated with a rust preventive. All internal machinery parts are treated using lubricants to provide protection against damage. Fragile items are packed with the utmost care, and respective signboards are placed outside their cases.

Pipping materials including flanges, pipes are properly plugged with plastic caps and are secured in correct positions. They are provided with bracing to eliminate any sort of distortion. Some black steel pipes are bundled and strapped utilizing bolts. Further, they are sprayed with a tactile spray to resist the formation of rust. Fittings are generally strapped in bundles of convenient sizes and weights.
