As an on-demand printing service, PartBox wanted a solution which allowed them to easily identify the article number of each printed item, providing them with a traceable workflow from the finished good to the ecommerce shop system. The aim? To improve quality control and streamline spare part production.
Through application of our back-end Serializer in the PartBox platform, ordered parts could be directly marked for traceability and tracked throughout the production chain. The benefits to Partbox were therefore twofold: firstly, once printed, the codes could be scanned by our DPM Scan Pro technology and the article number linked back to the PartBox shop system. Subsequently, if a part was faulty or sub-standard after production, issues with individual components could be quickly identified and rectified. Secondly, for part re-ordering, customers need only scan their marked item – again via our DPM Scan Pro technology – to access the PartBox ecommerce system. From our app, customers enter their required order quantity and rapid, on-demand spare part production is initiated. Customer data and IP security is maintained throughout the production process, and authentic, highly quality parts can be produced time and time again.
