GEOTEK Now Laser-Etches PUPI® Crossarms With Tracking Code
CSI Utility Sales is pleased to announce GEOTEK has begun laser-etching PUPI® fiberglass crossarms with a tracking code. The code is an enhancement to their Quality Management System and contains all the information needed to trace each PUPI® crossarm to a specific production date, time and pultrusion machine.
The first two (2) digits on the bottom line signify the series, the following six (6) digits tell the production date. The code is ½ inch high and takes the place of the manufacturing code that was formerly applied to the inside of the crossarm. The code is permanently etched into the SunGUARD™ coating, but does not completely penetrate the coating. The performance of the SunGUARD™ coating is not affected. In fact, the code has no effect on the performance of the beam at all.
Most crossarms will have the laser-etched codes within 30 days. It will take about 90 days for the system to be fully implemented across all crossarms.
