The demands on industrial data collection systems have continued to grow year over year for advances in speed, labor cost reduction, error proofing, maintainability, flexibility, accuracy, training efficiency, and exception reporting.
Analysis of medical device materials takes place during all stages of their design and use, from initial fabrication and prototype development to examination of the device or surrounding tissues after it has been removed from the patient.
Need an immediate increase in reliability? Is your product robust but you want complete confidence that everything has been done to minimize your field failures?
The recent advent of more affordable industrial robots and controls has enabled the development of fully automated eddy current testing systems that improve flaw detection and reduce inspection costs.
When white light strikes a surface, two different light interactions occur. Gloss or shininess is a geometric attribute related to the scattering of light off the first surface of the material.
The torque testers of today can offer so much more than just measuring the twist-off torque of a bottle top. They can measure a wide variety of products and materials, communicate on multiple levels and be effortlessly integrated into automated manufacturing environments.
The right choice of inspection hardware and software for Computer-Aided Inspection (CAI) can reduce inspection times by up to 90% while improving repeatability and reproducibility (R&R) variances by up to 50%.
Put yourself in someone else’s shoes. It’s a great way to describe empathy, a subject I have talked about in other columns. But the phrase is also a great way to describe one important aspect of what designers and engineers do with every project, especially quality engineers—environment stress testing and screening.
Counting objects in an image seems like an easy task, which can be automated through machine vision and image analysis, but it becomes difficult when objects touch, move randomly, or are hard to distinguish from their background.
LMI introduced the manufacturer to Cyth Systems, a leading integration and engineering firm headquartered in Southern California with pioneering success in designing and building automated test systems, machine vision systems, and embedded control systems.
The purpose of this field guide is to assist organizations, step by step, in implementing a quality management system (QMS) in conformance with ISO 9001:2008, whether from scratch or by transitioning from ISO 9001:2000. It examines each sub-clause of Sections 4–8 of ISO 9001:2008, which contain the requirements, and gives a list of the documentation/documents required, internal audit questions, a summary of management’s responsibilities, and a flowchart of the steps that need to be undertaken to satisfy the requirements.
