The dedicated and selflessASQ member leaders are the primary reason why the society is able to fulfill its mission of: empowering individuals and communities of the world to achieve excellence through quality.
Peter Drucker, the famed author, educator, and management consultant, said “Efficiency is doing things right, effectiveness is doing the right things.” Whether individually or organizationally, the key to short and long-term success is to focus on the most important issues.
You have most likely heard it expressed as the battle between the irresistible force versus the immoveable object. More accurately, it is Newton’s Law, which, in part, states that a body at rest will stay at rest and a body in motion will stay in motion unless acted upon by another force.
Measurement devices must be calibrated regularly to ensure they perform their jobs properly. While calibration covers a wide range of applications and scenarios, the goal is simple: ensure your device is measuring to your standards.
In 2010 the ASTM F42 Committee on Additive Manufacturing (AM) created the terminology for an industry which up to then was referred to as rapid prototyping (RP). Parts made using the various rapid prototyping technologies were often used as design concept models, fit check mock-ups and function test articles.
Manufacturers and brand owners are under tremendous pressure to ensure premium end-to-end product quality, especially as consumers increasingly demand perfection. And a great deal of that product quality pressure still falls on human visual inspection.
Imaging sensors in the machine vision space have traditionally fit into cameras utilizing only a couple of different camera mounts. However, newer sensors are beginning to grow far too large. Lens and camera manufacturers need to collaborate to develop new mounting standards for the new, large sensor formats.
On Demand Fast, flexible, repeatable, and accurate non-contact optical measurement technologies are the future of quality control on the production floor. Learn how to perform dimensional, form, profile, thread, and position measurements on a variety of parts for automotive, aerospace, textile, medical, and other precision turned part industries.
On DemandSurface finish measurement can be a confusing and often misunderstood part of metrology. Devices to measure surface finish can be simple hand held units for use on the shop floor or massive granite based systems located in the quality lab.
On Demand This presentation will review the use of metrology casting materials or replica materials that are used to create high fidelity reproductions of these difficult-to-measure surfaces. These reproductions can then be more easily measured.
This webinar will convey basic information about collaborative robots and what makes them inherently safe and easy to use. We will discuss the concept of “incremental automation” to help get you started, as well as how to calculate the ROI of your investment, and most importantly, the deployment time-saving nature of “plug and play” peripherals.
