Fasteners – such as nuts, bolts, screws and rivets – are essential structural components of vehicles, and their failure can have severe repercussions for driver safety. Many of these metallic items are also unavoidably exposed to harsh operating conditions, meaning they are liable to corrode over time.
Lean manufacturing was originally focused on the manufacturing floor, but its methodologies have reached all levels of operations, from procurement to marketing. It has been adopted across a range of industries, from healthcare to hospitality.
Simple changes to how you use color measurement technology and the right training can significantly impact quality control and your bottom line. Here are seven questions every quality control manager should be asking.
Reverse engineering as a term is adopted by many industry subsets. From genetics, computer code, complex PCBs (printed circuit boards), and even military espionage. In this article, we are specifically relating to a metrology-driven process steered by high-precision 3D data acquisition tools.
It is crucial to hit the right color tone in the production process and to produce it homogeneously across numerous batches. Color not only leaves an impression of quality, but can also be used as an indirect variable to control the process.
When RYE explored ways to improve the accuracy, integrity and throughput of its precision measurement data, the decision to deploy DataSure® 4.0, the industry’s latest data acquisition solution developed by The L.S. Starrett Co. of Athol, MA, boiled down to — you guessed it – seconds.
Color is a critical part of any product. It’s the first thing your customer sees. Whether you are manufacturing components for assembly or finished assembled goods, the color has to be right every time or you risk scrapping, reworking, or discounting the product. This impacts your bottom line.
The Quality Show is a 3-day tradeshow dedicated to connecting quality manufacturing professionals with process improvement vendors for all things QUALITY. Join thousands of quality managers, engineers and manufacturing professionals to network, attend education sessions and test out the latest technologies and products that will improve quality and productivity in your manufacturing process. We will be back in Rosemont, IL at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center for the 5th biennial Quality Show, October 24-26, 2023. Look forward to seeing you there!
