Advances in technology have resulted in the development of handheld X-ray fluorescence (HHXRF) and handheld laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (HHLIBS) analyzers that can be used for on-site analysis, enabling real-time testing and often eliminating the need for destructive sampling.
The manufacturing industry has seen major upheaval over the past few years. From supply chain disruption to worker shortages, keeping the pipeline filled with quality products – free of defects – has been no easy challenge. Because of these issues, the promise of Industry 4.0, or smart manufacturing, has never been more important.
There’s more to delivering parts on time than knowing how many you scrap and how much it costs. Having an ERP system that integrates various software modules with the quality module is essential for understanding, measuring and managing all the processes that contribute to superior quality and on-time delivery.
A typical program should come packaged as one comprehensive solution, with real-time monitoring and alerts.

Statistical process control (SPC) helps organizations monitor and control quality. It enables manufacturers to boost efficiency, minimize waste, and detect problems early. Quality and process monitoring is key to efficiency in manufacturing.
As the manufacturing industry becomes more automated, quality control -- especially 3D scanners – are more key than ever.

When scanning was new on the market, capturing just 10,000 square feet of data in a day was considered a feat. Now, cutting-edge laser scanning technology enables manufacturers to capture 100 times that amount of information.
Deciding whether to purchase a force tester for basic testing or a material tester for advance testing could be a challenge based on the multitude of options and functions which are available today to meet your test requirements.
On Demand Join us to learn how a 3D metrology solution has provided an independent designer and manufacturer with increased inspection mobility for their measurement needs while boosting their capacity by 75%. With today’s ever-changing markets it is crucial your business has access to cutting-edge technologies that will eliminate the complexity of automation to improve your work processes and increase productivity.
On Demand It is more important than ever to continuously improve processes and prevent the likelihood of defects and inefficiencies. Our expert will demonstrate how this tool uses a series of assessments based on the PDCA cycle that looks at process definition and performance in four components: Results, Enabler (PDCA for this example), Process, and Format. This excel worksheet group will be a free handout downloadable for attendees to use after this guided practice.
On Demand Production teams are struggling to find employees to keep up with QC inspection requirements, maintain productivity, and control production processes. Collaborative robots have emerged as a leading solution for high-mix, small-batch manufacturers, making automation on the shop floor simple and effective. Join this webinar to learn how QC teams can automate their current processes to alleviate QC bottlenecks, improve real-time process control and collect inspection data for their suppliers.
On Demand This webinar aims to look at new CMM technology offerings, specifically within the automotive sector, analyzing the differences between the main competitors using real-world data and demonstrating why Laser Radar is a key technology in this future of measurement.
On Demand Join this webinar to learn how companies of all sizes are adopting easy-to-use cobots to overcome the labor shortage, handle multi-shift operations, scale production on-the-fly, and solve many other challenges.
On Demand FAI creation is an essential element of quality control programs but can consume a significant amount of time. In this webinar, we will discuss a tool that consolidates all requirements into an accountability checklist, keeping drawing and inspection sheets in sync.
Diverse, fast, and complex manufacturing flows require tools that collect everything now, integrate information from all locations, and facilitate immediate, deep analysis. Join Brad Armstrong, SME on SPC at Advantive, to learn about the next generation of SPC monitoring and control.
A measurement plan is used to convey dimensional specifications from engineering to quality control and manufacturing teams. In this session, attendees will learn how to digitalize their 3D measurement planning process to save time and money.
