Rework is annoying and drains manufacturing companies of time, money and resources. Fortunately, it can be effectively reduced with lean principles. If your aim is to decrease rework, it’s imperative to focus on three areas:
In our previous article, we discussed how Smart Klaus technology can be used for Assembly Assistance. In this entry, we’ll examine how it can be used to improve the Final Inspection process.
Quality assurance is the last opportunity to make a great impression on clients and customers. If your manufacturing company wants consistently happy customers, you need to send them flawless products. That’s where Smart Klaus can help.
The program uses a camera and image processing software to analyze products for accuracy, then discovers any defects and reports any problematic products to an automatic rejection system. The process can be documented automatically and given to customers as proof of inspection.
1) An administrator teaches the testing procedures to the program by taking images of a high-quality part and saving them in the database. The features are then identified for inspection and objective values and tolerances are entered.
2) The test pieces are compared with the properties, target values and tolerances stored in the database. The system’s algorithms can check for colors, shapes, text and more can be examined.
3) Areas that aren’t visible to the camera can be analyzed with the program’s edge detection feature. This function measures contours, weight, electrical resistance and many other areas.
Once the Smart Klaus inspection system is set up and implemented, your manufacturing company will benefit from:
