In this feature published by Machine Design Magazine, Derek Kuhn, Sciemetric’s senior vice-president, argues why machine builders can’t ignore the growing use of process data by manufacturers to drive quality assurance, greater automation, efficiency and profitability. Manufacturers want this intelligence incorporated into a line as it is being built, rather than incur the time and expense of procuring equipment, hardware, and software from different vendors and trying to integrate it all together.
Whether you’re a machine shop, a job shop, or a contract manufacturer in the supply chain of a major OEM, your success today rests with how machine vision data comes together with all the rest of your production data. In this article, Sciemetric's Manufacturing IT Manager, Patrick Chabot discusses how to be more competitive and break machine vision out of its silo.
Today’s Motor Vehicles editor Rob Schoenberger talks with Mathew Daniel, Sciemetric’s VP of Operations, about the network architecture and best practices manufacturers must adopt to make more effective use of their machine vision images and data to drive quality and contain defects.
In this feature with Vision Systems Design, Mathew Daniel, Sciemetric’s VP of Operations, explores how bringing images and image data into the serialized birth history record for each part in production opens the door to advanced analytics for process improvement and traceability for defect containment. It just takes careful planning to determine how best to collect, store and manage this data.
Derek Kuhn, Sciemetric’s senior vice-president, takes to the pages of APMA Lead, Reach, Connect to explain why auto manufacturers must look beyond data related to the performance of machines and business processes if they wish to succeed in a sector that is rapidly being redefined by Industry 4.0 and Manufacturing 4.0 principles. They must also collect, serialize and analyze the reams of production data generated by the process and test stations on the line.
Manufacturing is changing thanks to the increasingly sophisticated and intelligent use of data to make a production line smarter and more efficient. For off-highway and specialty vehicle manufacturers, the 4.0 revolution offers great opportunity to achieve significant cost reductions and grow revenue. In this article, Sciemetric's Product Manager, Dave Mannila, discusses the benefits of data-driven in-process testing.
The Ottawa Business Journal discusses Sciemetric’s acquisition by Ohio-based TASI Group with CEO Nathan Sheaff and how this is expected to accelerate Sciemetric’s growth.
Mathew Daniel, Sciemetric’s VP of Operations, is featured in Manufacturing Technology Insights Magazine where he discusses how manufacturers must go deeper than conventional manufacturing execution systems (MES) to achieve the quality and efficiency benchmarks demanded by Industry 4.0. This is about taking data collection and analysis to a new level with what Frost and Sullivan calls Manufacturing Performance and Quality Management (MP&QM).
In this feature with Quality Magazine, Rob Plumridge, Sciemetric leak application engineer, discusses how to tackle the first “R” of Gage R&R for leak testing – repeatability. By focusing on repeatability first (before the other “R” – reproducibility), manufacturers can be certain they have addressed all the controllable variables that can impact the leak test, regardless of the equipment.
Mathew Daniel, Sciemetric’s VP of Operations, shares with InTech Magazine how manufacturers can make the most effective use of their machine vision data to achieve higher standards of quality and efficiency and troubleshoot problems faster when warranty claims come through the door.
