As long term customers of IML – when British Steel needed to increase the heat at the rod mill, we were ready to provide a new solution. They were currently using Dura-ID’s Rip-proof tags in a variety of colours– but found that if the tag was put on at a slightly higher temperature they were melting and had to double up on the use of labels, in turn costing them much more than necessary. It was time to introduce a solution that could deal with the heat.
Requiring a solution that would withstand a temperature of up to 600 degrees – the Thermo-Tag was the new identification solution they needed. Graham Halliday, Manufacturing Manager at the rod mill got in touch with Neil Dunn and has seen a huge improvement in productivity and effective labelling since the new system has been introduced.
“Dura-ID have gone above and beyond what we would have expected from a label supplier and have always made sure that we are operational in the labelling of the coils. Whether it be delivering labels by hand at short notice or making sure our job takes priority they have been outstanding.”
