Learn how Pinnacle Machine Works, a growing energy industry manufacturing company, ditched pen and paper quality control (QC) and transformed operations with MeasurLink(r), Mitutoyo's proprietary data management solution.
Wilbur and Orville Wright began experimenting with the idea of flight in 1899, and their first aircraft famously took flight in 1903. “It was the Wrights' genius and vision to see that humans would have to fly their machines, that the problems of flight could not be solved from the ground,” according to the National Park Service.

Quality assurance in the aerospace industry presents unique challenges to maintain high standards for safety-critical parts without impeding the speed of manufacturing and overall productivity. These challenges are amplified by stringent authorizations — including more specs to follow, strict paperwork traceability, and compliance and certification standards.
No one wants to spend time making scrap, and automation is one way to avoid or at least minimize quality issues. Rather than spending time making products that aren’t up to specification, operators will make good parts and catch quality issues earlier.
Do you wait until parts break down to repair them? Unscheduled maintenance can lead to extra costs, and even worse – downtime. We hope you can get a glimpse of how to cut down on costs and avoid downtime with these examples of teams getting ahead of equipment failure.
The proverb “time is money” applies to almost every profession today, but especially to manufacturing, and certainly to CNC machining. Lights-out facilities are becoming more prevalent, and the importance of active controls with automated feedback is growing, too.
On Demand Attend this webinar to learn about key considerations associated with in-line measurement, including; space limitations along the line, necessity for 24/7 uptime, manufacturing floor temperature variances, debris and irritant considerations and maintenance concerns.
On Demand Manufacturers are seeking greater levels of automation, higher workforce productivity, and error-proofing. Learn about the technologies your peers are using, what’s coming, and what you can do to move your business forward.
