ZERO fault production
Early detection of faults in the production process and elimination of faults on the output
The quality is today one of the essential requirements for the production, whether it is the quality of input components, assembly, or the quality of the final product.
In terms of costs it is important to maintain the quality of the product at the first time so there was no need for additionally carried out repairs of the product. It prevents formation of scrap, which significantly increases costs of the material, but also reduces production efficiency.
The individual steps the production process may be automatically controlled. The basic question is "What to manufacture". The system checks whether the operator carries out the order according to the schedule, monitors carried out operations, or the order of their execution.
The most common process where quality control is introduced is the assembly process. At the high variability of products and custom production, or JIT production, the system may navigate the operator using the screen through the whole process of the assembly. The screen displays individual assembly steps where it shows the operator all the necessary information (what and how to manufacture).
In addition to displaying the assembly instructions it is important to check whether the process steps were carried out correctly.
It is possible to monitor and evaluate the outputs of several devices
- Electric and pneumatic screwdrivers (screwing torque, angle, time)
- PLC and CNC - communication and exchange of signals with control computers
- Sensors – such as the presence or location of a particular part
- Cameras – image acquisition and evaluation
- Pick to light systems – navigation and checking in selecting of the processing part
- Barcode scanners – check of the correctness of assembled components
- Control buttons
- Electrical test– electrical connections check
You can automatically keep a record of the quality of the performed tests, storing sensed parameters, or even image documentation (image of the product at the end of assembly step).
