Web-Based Software Manages Quality Data Stream
Smart Manufacturing Experience 2018: Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence will showcase its HxGN Smart Quality online quality data and measurement resource management platform.
Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence will showcase its HxGN Smart Quality online quality data and measurement resource management platform. The software delivers information automation to quality management, so that manufacturers and quality control professionals can shape smarter workflows and actively improve efficiency and productivity.
The platform is said to structure data intelligently to give manufacturers deep insight into production and dynamically support continuous improvement initiatives. Users can harness their quality data stream across multiple phases of manufacturing, a feature which provides valuable intelligence through comprehensive statistical analysis, visualization and workflow management.
Users can remotely access the web-based software to manage quality requirements in real time during the product lifecycle, achieving a data-driven approach to manufacturing. HxGN Smart Quality is based on a configurable standard toolset that can be tailored to the specific requirements of each individual manufacturing environment. The system’s implementation does not require extensive development or costly customization work, which saves both time and money, according to the company.
HxGN Smart Quality can be used on a single production line, throughout a manufacturing plant or across multiple sites of an enterprise. The platform provides all the tools needed for connectivity, statistical analysis and resource management, enabling manufacturers to take control of their data and work smarter.
Just because dial indicators have been around since the early 1900s, don't expect them to fade away with the last century. This tool's long-term popularity is well earned.
Virtually every machine tool builder lists, as part of a machine's specification, accuracy and repeatability figures. What's generally not given is the method used to arrive at the figures. Though these methods are defined in linear positioning standards, not all builders use the same standards.
Lockheed Martin’s precision machining of composite skin sections for the F-35 provides part of the reason why this plane saves money for U.S. taxpayers. That machining makes the plane compelling in ways that have led other countries to take up some of the cost. Here is a look at a high-value, highly engineered machining process for the Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.
