1. We are dedicated to your success, provide full support 

At the beginning of the process, our team will sit down with you to understand your goals and requirements. The extent of the consultation phase will depend on your specifications and requirements. Our in-house engineers can design and develop the specifications for your project along with your team as needed. 

Once you have signed off on the build, our team delivers the new system to your facility, completes the installation/integration, and performs final runoff. Our team ensures that this is an efficient process with minimal to no negative impacts to current production.

We cater our post-production support to ensure your team is comfortable and satisfied with the new system. Post-production support includes training for your team, final documentation, and final project sign-off. After sign-off, our support team remains at your disposal for questions or further consultation.

2. Process monitoring, measurement, IPT experts

Process monitoring and measurement is a core specialty at Sciemetric. Our products are built to enable visibility into every moment of production, enabling the best root cause analysis capabilities possible. We can apply measurement tools to nearly any application, granting you access to the quality insights you need.

  • We can monitor virtually anything and work with virtually any technology you may have on your line.

Experts in manufacturing process, in-process testing 

Sciemetric is the industry expert on part and components manufacturing processes and in-process testing. This expertise enhances all of our offerings, as we have a deep understanding of how the manufacturing line works and where problems are most likely to occur. We then apply measurement and alerts at these stations to make sure faulty processes are identified before they move further down the line. 

We can measure and monitor nearly any process on your manufacturing line, including metrics such as: temperature and humidity, force and distance monitoring, torque/torque-to-turn, noise and vibration (NVH), profile, vision, and more. 

  • The result? An efficient production line, a healthy bottom line, and an end product you can count on.

3. Manufacturing data analytics experts 

Sciemetric is a specialist in data acquisition, data management, and data analysis from part production processes. 

It starts with data acquisition. Whether it is building data acquisition into a new system or applying modern data technologies to an older system, we help you access the insights you need to ensure quality products are leaving your line and that you can continuously optimize your processes.

Then we deal with data management and analytics. Looking to gain more insight into the processes on your line? Our data solutions are flexible and scalable to your needs. With our QualityWorX suite of data management and analytics tools, we can enable real-time data insights and alerts, visualized defect detection, and continuous improvement at one station, or across a production line. Our team can help you determine the best approach for your line.
