How Inspection Improved the Manufacturing Process


Reading time ( words)

In our previous survey, we asked how inspection has helped improve the manufacturing process. Here are just a few of the replies, slightly edited for clarity.

Greg Vance, Rockwell Automation: "Identify defects earlier at the assembly process, enabling the issue(s) to be resolved and reducing the overall quantity of defects long term."

Pawel Piotrowski, WABCO: "Decreased defects after reflow."

Jose Mari Matellan, Fagor Automation: "Detect fails of the pick-and-place machine and reflow oven."
