GOMAX full traceability system

COLORNO, Italy – October 22nd, 2014 – GOMAX hoses, fittings and assemblies since their early days offer a state of the art traceability system, based on the batch number and barcode that is print on the hose, and on every label that follow fitting boxes and assemblies bags.

Although this system has proven its reliability in more than 20 years of successful and certified service, we decided to introduce this year a remarkable improvement adding a traceability number permanently marked on every individual fitting and component.

In fact, although the batch number we print today on labels is more than enough to allow us to conduct a detailed back-in-time traceability search if requested by a partner, we are aware that often our customers lose track of this number once the fitting, the component, or the assembly, is taken out of the box and assembled on the unit.

The lack of a batch number unavoidably makes the trace-back analysis nearly impossible, generating wide areas of uncertainty when, in case of a technical issue or a quality review, the end user would be in need to exactly identify a component and its history. Not to mention if the source of the components are mixed, for example when an OEM is sourcing GOMAX parts both directly and from authorized GOMAX distributors.

GOMAX definitive answer to this issue consist of a unique traceability number marked on each component. This number is linked to the batch number printed on the label on the box. So, for example, if you installed on your unit a GOMAX hose, but you forgot to keep track of the batch number indicated on the box of the fitting used, thanks to the GOMAX FULL TRACEABILITY SYSTEM, just reporting the number that you will be able to read on each component of the fitting used, we will be able to fully rebuild the history of that part.

Once again, GOMAX sets a new standard in its industry offering a unique feature that guarantees to its users an even greater peace of mind granted by this extraordinary traceability system, joined with the world known superior quality and unbeaten performances of the GOMAX products.
