The cost savings of commonality across your assembly lines
sigPOD enables your operation to achieve greater efficiency and reduce costs by standardizing part test and process monitoring onto a single platform. Instead of learning and managing dozens of different types of systems, your team can focus on making quality and productivity improvements on the assembly line.
Common Hardware: Take less time to learn how to use, set up or apply a new system. If there’s a problem with the system on the line, swap it out fast with another standard box.
Common Software: Work with a standard platform that makes it easy to correlate downstream failures with upstream processes and solve problems faster.
Common Look and Feel: Though adapted for a specific application, all the hardware is the same and all the software looks and feels the same.
Common Learning Curve: Shorten the learning curve for busy engineers and for operators to move between stations without the need for extensive training.
Common Spare Parts: You don’t need to maintain a vast inventory of spares for all kinds of systems. One hardware box can be used for many applications on the line.
The secret is in the digital process signature
At the heart of Sciemetric’s technology and sigPOD is the digital process signature. This is a visual representation of everything that happened through every millisecond of a manufacturing process or test cycle. The baseline profile of a pass versus a fail makes it easy to establish a range of acceptable deviation and catch a defect before the part moves on to the next station.
Data-driven manufacturing defect detection
sigPOD features the most advanced process signature verification (PSV) technology available today. By analyzing and collecting more data points than is typical in conventional test systems, PSV provides the most accurate, reliable, and repeatable measurement of manufacturing processes.
