Automated traceability through photo capture, save and recall.

Storing an image record of every product manufactured is now a critical tool in the modern production process, providing front line brand and warranty protection based on time-stamped photos in case of later warranty claims.

Automatic image archiving enables all the scanned images to be stored onto the system hard drive automatically without operator intervention. Easily recall your full production photos or view images of individual products before they left your facility.

    Quality control in manufacturing

    In manufacturing, quality control is a process that ensures customers receive products and components free from defects and meet their needs in terms of the specification agreed upon. If the quality is wrong, it can put customers, consumers and the end user at risk. As an example, a recent defect found in Takata airbags resulted in the biggest automotive recall in production history. The recall included almost 69 million airbag inflators and may cost billions of pounds. The recall will last until the end of 2019 and take until well into 2020 to complete.

    Major recalls like this tough can be prevented through effective quality control in manufacturing. Some common tools used to support quality control and production engineering quality include:

    • Statistical process control (SPC) monitors and controls quality by tracking production statistics and metrics. It helps quality director, managers and engineers identify and solve problems before products leave the facility.
    • Six Sigma uses five key principles to ensure products meet customers’ needs and have zero defects.
    • When supported by additional lean tools like Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), 5S, and Kaizen, most if not all defects can be eliminated.

    Where does Image Archiving come into this?

    Producing components, sub-assemblies, products and parts in mass volume invariably means the manufacturer will get a query regarding product quality at some point in the manufacturing process. Normally this occurs once the product arrives at the customer site and this is where the discussions become tricky. Without evidence of the actual product quality as a final inspection prior to it leaving the factory the manufacturer and the customer can get into a discussion regarding where the blame lies. By automatically photographing at Ultra HD the product at the final inspection, combined with a data and time stamp and serial number recall – the manufacturer can provide factual evidence of what the product looked like prior to shipping. For example, if a scratch, blemish, missing part, dent, label missing or part orientation is wrong, all can be seen in the photo prior to shipping to prove it left in a high-quality state.
