Norris Cylinder

Norris Cylinder is pleased to announce their new partnership with Lockhouse and TrackAbout on new Universal Labels for asset management systems to help streamline the industrial gas supply chain. The first Universal Labels will be deployed with Norris Cylinder customers Red Ball Oxygen, S.J. Smith and more.

The Universal Label contains a barcode, QR code, and human readable with checksum code so that asset information can more readily be accessed by product owners and technicians, in more formats, in real time.

Cylinders from Norris will arrive pre-labeled with two identical labels, barcoded and ready for entry into their customer’s tracking or other business system. Cylinders arrive with corresponding data file containing attributes for all labeled cylinders. The shared data process is supported by TrackAbout who will assist Norris Cylinder customers on importing the data file. No onsite labeling or manual data entry is necessary.

For any additional manual data entry in the field, errors are greatly reduced with the built-in human readable checksum validation. End users in the field can also access critical information about the cylinder via the QR code: safety info, original test data, etc. from Norris via the Lockhouse search/recovery engine.

Options for customers to add their own logo to the label and add their own company’s critical information about their cylinders via the QR code are also available to Norris Cylinder customers.

“Universal Labels will profoundly impact the supply chain and help our customers and their end users get easy, always available and digitally enabled cylinder data and critical information they need in order to be more efficient and successful,” explained Michael Rollins, Global VP of Sales and Marketing, Norris Cylinder.

“These [Universal Labels] are great and we think our associates and end users are going to really like having easier access to cylinder information,” stated Craig Harris, Vice President, Operations, Red Ball Oxygen.
