US steel service-center Calstrip Industries has implemented the metal service center ERP software STRATIX at their new location in Blytheville in Arkansas. The implementation of STRATIX included all areas of the business, notably: online production planning, cut-to-length, slitting, shop floor receipt of goods, shop-floor production recording and packaging with bar code scanning, toll processing, and online shipment planning. They also benefit from the unique product coding in STRATIX that eliminates the use of traditional, cumbersome part numbers.

For sales, Calstrip Industries benefits from the sales order entry functions where steel coil or sheet products can be entered along with the production specifications such as the gauge tolerance, width and/or length tolerance, coil min/max coil information, and packaging.

STRATIX enables Calstrip Industries to use less paper through the use of online production planning. From the production planning screen, multiple order items can be highlighted and grouped together to create a single slitting job. The planner can then specify the arbor layout, OD breaks, as well as additional slitting specific functions such as run full or partial, slit and re-slit, and trim.

At Calstrip Arkansas, the processing equipment from Braner USA, will be directly linked to STRATIX. Customer work orders will be uploaded from STRATIX directly to the Braner slitting and sheeting equipment for scheduling and set up. Dimensional and quality inspections will be entered automatically using Bluetooth connections between measuring devices and the machines, and verifications to customer specifications will be performed automatically to ensure the highest quality for customers. Automated packaging from Braner will round out the new plants capabilities, making it one of the most modern metal service centers in the industry.
