WeldEye and SSAB’s SmartSteel have been successfully integrated in order to streamline base material information handling in welding production. The results of the pilot are now available to all companies that are currently using both digital platforms.
SSAB SmartSteel is a cloud-based platform that stores all the data related to steel all the way from its manufacturing to delivery, processing, use, and recycling. By scanning a unique identification code on the steel plate, base material information and material certificates are easily available in digital format.
The integration with WeldEye welding management software has been implemented via SSAB’s API. The data transfer from SmartSteel has been automated to flow through the WeldEye cloud to IoT-enabled welding equipment.
Experiences have proven that the digitalization of welding-related operative and administrative tasks improves welding quality, saves time, and cuts costs by reducing the repair rate. The WeldEye/SmartSteel integration streamlines the welding process even further, as the necessary base material information will be available to the welders easier and faster than before.
