Catching and analyzing defects in real-time helps manufacturers improve product quality, production efficiency, and achieve higher yields by catching problems when they are the easiest and most cost-effective to fix. However, not all defect detection software and defect detection systems provide the level of insight required to pinpoint specific problems during each operation. The Sciemetric EDGE and sigPOD in-process platforms integrate measurement, monitoring, data collection, and reporting of Manufacturing 4.0 into each step of the manufacturing process and every critical-to-quality station on your line.
Detect defects to improve product quality during any process on your production line
Sciemetric's defect detection software and solutions can be applied to virtually any pass/fail test or production process in discrete manufacturing, including:
- Crimp: Avoid destructive pull tests by monitoring crimp processes in real-time.
- Dispense: Effectively monitor and visualize the dispensing of adhesives, sealants, and lubricants by bead location and width
- End-of-line (EOL): Perform and monitor end-of-line or functional testing of assemblies including press, leak, torque, vibration, and more.
- Leak Test: Optimize your leak tests to provide real-time visibility and detection of defects before they result in product quality issues.
- Press-Fit: Find part issues and identify process or machine issues in hydraulic press, servo-electric press, pneumatic press and mechanical press applications.
- Gauge & Profile: Identify surface defects and incorrect assemblies, and monitor planarity in flat parts.
- Sound & Vibration (NVH): Take a data-driven approach to detect clicks, whirrs, and other unwanted noise or vibration in motorized assemblies.
- Torque: Detect anomalies in torque operations to trace the root cause of various types of manufacturing defects.
- Weld: Monitor and analyze voltage, force, distance, and other variables associated with resistance welding, ultrasonic welding, arc welding and laser welding.
Sciemetric's systems deliver data in real-time, so you can catch defects as they occur. In depth, visualized reporting provides valuable insight into your processes, giving manufacturers the ability to analyze and correct the cause of defects quickly and with minimal disruption. For over 30 years, Sciemetric has been leading the development of data-driven manufacturing technologies for front-line defect detection. Manufacturers across all industries trust our flexible, powerful solutions to help them reach their Industry 4.0 production goals.
The Sciemetric difference: The most accurate defect detection and quality control using digital process signature verification
Sciemetric’s solutions are powered by our exclusive technology, process signature verification (PSV). A digital process signature is a visual representation of everything that happened through every millisecond of a manufacturing process or test cycle. It is visualized as a waveform through PSV.
By analyzing and collecting more data points than is typical of other quality assurance and defect detection systems, PSV provides the most accurate, reliable, and repeatable measurement of manufacturing processes.
This provides a baseline profile that makes it easy to determine pass/fail during the inspection process in production real-time and establish a range of acceptable deviation. Defects are caught quickly, before the part moves on to the next station.
Simplify production defect detection: One standard solution for automated defect recognition & analysis across your production line
A major benefit of Sciemetric's defect detection solutions is that Sciemetric technology can be used for virtually all in-process applications across the production line, simplifying the implementation, daily use and ongoing management of test systems. Our solutions are designed to be flexible, so you can apply our technology to one station, a few stations, or across a whole line or enterprise. Using Sciemetric's standard product platform strategy with common hardware and software across the plant offers many benefits, including:
- Easy integration into existing manufacturing process testing systems
- Advanced manufacturing process reporting and analysis
- Real-time pass-fail feedback across multiple testing stations
- Ability to investigate quality issues across stations to identify root cause
- Fewer types of test systems to understand and manage
- Standard look and feel reduces training requirements and the learning curve
- Easier to clone a station
- And more
Integrity testing means better quality parts, fewer defects
