As technology advances, as well as the need to reduce non-quality costs, frequency quality controls are being replaced by In-Line controls.
These In-Line controls are characterized by controlling, in a short cycle, enough points of 100% of the production. The opportunity of executing these controls with Smart Gauges or Intelligent Control Tools combines the efficiency in the control along with the alarms and the analysis of millions of data in a platform like Kapture.IO.
A Smart Checking Fixture is an intelligent control tools designed by the Tecnomatrix team, equipped with sensors and with the necessary connectivity to measure in real time 100% of the production, to enable automated analysis and with an alarm system. Furthermore, they allow reworking in the tool itself, gathering very valuable information on the effectiveness of reworking according to the defect, its frequency, etc.
An automatic & smart checking fixture facilitates 100% inspection, reduce measurement cycle times and is customizable to the needs of each control
The control of 100% of the production through a smart checking fixture facilitates quick decisions and better causality and traceability analysis. The results and its corresponding reports, together with other environmental data such as the place of measurement or temperature, are accessible in real time by all authorized personnel, including (if necessary) personnel from outside the organization. All this impacts on a more efficient manufacturing and on decreasing non-quality costs.
The collection and processing of large volumes of data also opens up a wide range of possibilities, from feedback on production processes to the introduction of Artificial Intelligence and Digital Twins, with the objective of Zero-Defect manufacturing.
