What is KTR Ident?

KTR Ident is our solution to the ever-increasing customer requirements regarding "product documentation" and "traceability".

KTR Ident collects all product-relevant data during the entire value-added process, prepares it in detail and issues it automatically - including all required documents such as certificates, test certificates etc.

KTR Ident identifies, documents and enables the traceability of product specifics, materials as well as manufacturing and assembly processes.

How does KTR Ident work?

The production and assembly-accompanying documentation takes place via an app that is installed on an industrial-grade smartphone (handheld). It communicates with SAP ERP, the central merchandise management system of KTR, optionally via wireless LAN or 4G. The app was developed by our IT department in Rheine.

Our suppliers, production plants and assembly stations are equipped with handhelds. They fill the app with all relevant data from the respective value creation section. Once entered, the data is immediately available in the ERP system. This allows downstream processes based on this data to start immediately.

The Classic Round Voyage

MS Richard With is one of 16 ships of the Norwegian shipping company Hurtigruten offering their guests a relaxing travel experience along the west coast of Norway. 590 passengers can book a place on MS Richard With. The ship built in a classic nautical style by the shipyard Volkswerft Stralsund has a length of 120 metres and is named in honour of the founder of Hurtigruten.  

The ship has a great deal to offer for the comfortable trip along a breathtaking scenery. „Enjoy the unforgettable views of the singular coastal landscape a major part of which still appears like in those days when the first Hurtigruten ships drove along here more than one decade ago“, the Norwegian shipping company located in Tromsø advertises.

Hurtigruten ship

This statement is reflected by the technical equipment of MS Richard With. As an example, bow thrusters facilitate manoeuvring and make landing and casting off smoother. The „steering assistance“ is supplied by BRUNVOLL located in Molde. The Norwegians specialized in marine drive and automation systems as well as bow thrusters including tunnel thrusters.  

Torsionally  flexible jaw couplings of the ROTEX series for torques up to 35,000 Nm as well as flexible pin & bush couplings of the series REVOLEX KX-D for torques up to 98,000 Nm are used­ as a connection element between motor and tunnel thruster. The elastomer damping elements in the couplings assume a vital feature for achieving a surplus in travel comfort. They uncouple the vibrations of the tunnel thrusters from the rest of the ship which you can feel and hear or not, as the case may be.
