For machines and equipment
Machines and equipment are typically composed of several components. Therefore, quality control and testing must be correctly implemented and started already in the subassembly stage to register the components, which are then tested during the assembly.
In this way, it is possible to identify any deviations or faults already in the installation stage thus avoiding dismounting work, as any defective parts can be immediately replaced. Component registration improves traceability, which is needed in the case that a deviation is detected in a product range after the delivery to the end customer.
Software downloads, configuration, replenishment and calibration of machines and equipment also require reliable quality control and traceability, as well as product-specific variation. Protacon takes all these into account in its quality control systems using the most suitable technological solutions.
Testing during subassembly does not guarantee the total functionality of the end product. Therefore, the final product test has an important role in ensuring high-quality end products. Protacon has implemented both subassembly and final test systems for various products and production environments.
Protacon’s quality assurance system architecture supports
- Flexible management
- Product assembly-specific variations in tests
- Integrated operation with ERP and MES systems
- Efficient data collection
- Versatile & dynamic reporting
In component manufacture, it is important to ensure structural and functional quality of the product. Structural quality assurance generally means measurement of physical dimensions, bonds and surface quality of the material. Functional quality assurance means measurement and testing of product properties and functions.
Protacon has designed and constructed several quality assurance systems. In structural quality assurance, we use machine vision measurements and/or optical, sound frequency or radiation scans. Functional quality is ensured with functional tests designed for the purpose.
