Drive first time yield on your engine line to 100%

Continuous improvement is difficult with traditional methods of monitoring engine quality. This is due to the reliance on end-of-line testing, weak reporting, the lack of data and the inability to analyze it quickly and efficiently. Sciemetric’s Engine IPT suite is proven to deliver high quality engines while reducing costs and enabling manufacturers to achieve high first time yield targets.

Our approach finds defects as early as possible in the assembly process rather than downstream in assembly when the costs to address them are more significant. The types of critical tests we provide include:

  • Short block crank torque to turn test
  • Short block verification
  • Oil cavity and coolant cavity leak test
  • Long block verification
  • Cold test

You can learn more about these by browsing through the application notes or take a look at the Engine IPT blueprint to see the types of quality checks that can be performed throughout engine assembly.

Sciemetric’s in-process testing approach not only uses advanced signature analysis to deliver the most accurate quality measurement on the production line, but also includes the collection of all process data and tools to make use of it. Create reports with a few mouse clicks, drill down into quality issues and determine their root causes so that they can be eradicated.

We really know engines. It’s where we started in manufacturing in the early 1990s when we pioneered signature analysis for in-process defect detection, creating the industry’s first engine cold test application for a V8/V10 engine line. Today our systems ensure the quality of millions of engines every year, around the world.
