In the pages of Industrial Technology Magazine, Sciemetric CEO Nathan Sheaff highlights five things manufacturers can easily do with their process data right now to take the guesswork out of limit setting, optimize test cycle times, trace the root cause of defects, predict maintenance requirements, and launch machines and lines faster.
What production data is necessary to drive your Industry 4.0 agenda? “Industry 4.0”, “big data” and “data analytics” are not futuristic “hope to achieve some day” concepts. In this feature with Automation.com. Mathew Daniel, Sciemetric’s VP of Operations, discusses how they are redefining the competitive landscape of global manufacturing today, and the kind of digital architecture manufacturers must adopt to collect, manage and analyze their data to achieve the actionable insight they need.
Sciemetric product launch manager Robert Ouellette shares with Manufacturing Automation Magazine how digital process signature analysis takes take quality control on the production line to a new level. While SPC and scalar data continue to serve a useful role to monitor and track the health of a production line, it is signature analysis that offers the most effective means to quickly find and address root cause when problems arise.
The editors of Design Engineering profile Sciemetric’s Model 3675, a turnkey station to boost the speed and accuracy of leak testing. The 3675 can combine up to three of Sciemetric’s 3520 Series Leak Test units in one stand, controlled by a single sigPOD controller.
Vision systems can’t see air trapped within gasketing material, so an automotive powertrain supplier turned to Sciemetric to find a new way to spot bubbles before they compromised seals. Sciemetric account manager Aaron Alberts shares with Today’s Motor Vehicles how and why Sciemetric worked with fluid handling products and systems company Graco to create the Graco Dispense Analyzer.
A poor seal between the part to be tested and the leak test station can skew test results, allowing faulty parts to pass and perfectly good ones to be failed. In this feature published by Automation.com, Sciemetric leak test specialist Robert Plumridge explores how quality engineers can address the common issues with achieving a consistently reliable seal to ensure a reliable test.
Sciemetric CEO Nathan Sheaff talks to the editors of Smart Industry about how digital transformation and big data analysis have converged to create a new generation of intelligent leak test systems that provide manufacturers with the reliability and the repeatability to achieve a higher standard of production quality.
Richard Brine, Sciemetric’s CTO, talks to the editors of New Equipment Digest about the 3520 Series Leak Test and how its use of smart sensors, precision electronics and digital process signature analysis delivers a new level of repeatability and reliability to the often frustrating process of leak testing.
Sciemetric product launch manager Robert Ouellette shares with Quality Magazine how quality engineers can measure and compensate for the sometimes dramatic effects of temperature variations on the accuracy and repeatability of a leak test.
Richard Brine, Sciemetric’s CTO, discusses with Industrial Machinery Digest how manufacturers must evolve beyond scalar data collection and analysis alone to rise to the big data challenge posed by Industry 4.0. He outlines the need for centralized collection and analysis of the digital process signatures, or waveforms, generated by every cycle of the process and test stations on the line.
