INTOCAST Ibérica uses TransLution™ Software to label and scan finished goods
INTOCAST Ibérica in Spain is the third INTOCAST site in Europe and the fourth overall to use TransLution™ Software in their production scanning.
The Spanish site uses TransLution™ to label and scan finished goods out of production. When a finished item is scanned, TransLution™ uses the Bill of Materials to find all the raw materials required to make this product. The software then performs a series of raw material issues and labour posts as per the bill of materials, effectively replicating a Kit Issue using the SYSPRO Business objects rather than requiring a user to do this from the SYSPRO frontend.
Once successfully posted TransLution™ then posts a Job Receipt to add the finished goods item to stock.
Everything at INTOCAST Ibérica is palletized and TransLution™ prints all of the pallet labels detailing the items on the pallet.
TransLution™ is then used during the Picking and Dispatch process – users pick pallets against a Sales Order and the system generates a Dispatch Note.
Finally, all of the information about the stock on each pallet is stored in TransLution™ so users are only required to scan each pallet during stock take.
An important requirement by INTOCAST Ibérica was the ability to generate all documentation required by EU standards. TransLution™ was therefore configured to generate these documents with the required text in multiple languages as per EU regulations.
Founded in 1979, INTOCAST took over the business activities of Eugen Schwarz GmbH, who since 1922, had been supplying the German and European steel industry with consumables for iron and steelmaking.
Through mergers and acquisitions, the INTOCAST Group has grown over the decades into an enterprise that is now active globally. INTOCAST has a strategically selected network of 12 German and 17 foreign sites, employing 1350 staff members worldwide, with a consolidated group turnover of approx. EUR 330 million per annum and is one of the few companies to manufacture and market shaped and unshaped refractory products, casting auxiliaries as well as metallurgical slag additives.
