On a typical automotive axle manufacturing line there are at least 20 possible points, from subassembly to final test, where processes can be monitored or tested. Many manufacturers aren’t monitoring each of these stations on their line, causing defects to go unnoticed—that is, until there is a costly recall.
Sciemetric’s solution allows you to catch defects and problems early in your production line by monitoring to each key station in your process, reducing the overall cost and impact of a recall.
Monitor every process on your axle manufacturing line
Sciemetric's sigPOD is is configurable to monitor virtually any test on your axle manufacturing line to ensure product quality and catch defects before the even reach the end of the line—all in one common solution across your plant. Process data from each station on the axle manufacturing line, including press-fit monitoring, leak testing, torque checks, liquid gasket verification and more, is captured using the sigPOD and made available using our PSV (process signature verification) software or data intelligence tools for more details analysis and reporting.
Data intelligence on the production line
Sciemetric’s QualityWorX data intelligence software provides data collection and analysis across every production line in your enterprise. These tools enable complete traceability throughout the automotive manufacturing process, and the tools to create reports that show that your parts meets quality standards—down to the components within the final assembly.
In-process verification catches defects in real-time
Process signatures provide the insight that visual inspections miss
Random visual and mechanical inspections conducted at the end of the line are insufficient at identifying faulty parts. Something as simple as applying too little or too much force when inserting a bushing into a metal bracket can cause serious performance issues for the consumer. Without monitoring in-process, these faults go unnoticed—that is, until there is a warranty claim.
By implementing Sciemetric technology, manufacturers are able to eliminate visual inspection and other unreliable end-of-line tests to measure assembly quality and access the data to prove it, in real-time.
