Prior to beginning any discussion about a 100% inspection or testing process in metrology, it is necessary to define our terminology. When we say in metrology, "100% Inspection" or "100% Testing," we are referring to the fact that everything has been tested or inspected completely.

For testing parts, what exactly do we mean by 100% inspection?

Each and every part of a particular batch is subjected to 100 percent inspection, which means that all parts of a particular batch are tested against predetermined tolerances of defined features. It does not refer to inspecting and testing every single quality feature on a part; that is referred to as "Complete Testing" or "Complete Inspection," and it is a component of total quality management.

We are all aware that the best lean manufacturing and quality inspection china process is to prevent errors in manufacturing by inspecting before and during the manufacturing process – allowing the process to be corrected as a result. If everything goes according to plan, this will take place long before they are ready to ship. This is, without a doubt, the primary focus of WENZEL America, which explains why we develop so many custom CMM measuring solutions that can be integrated into the manufacturing process and the shop floor. Nonetheless, we recognize that we do not live in an ideal world, and we are aware that automotive, medical device, and aerospace companies (your customers) are increasingly demanding that parts manufacturers perform 100% inspection before shipping – regardless of the quality of their metrology processes prior to and during production.

It is possible to bring that 80% accuracy as close to 100% as possible by implementing the appropriate CMM measuring solutions at each stage of the process. When 100% inspection is required prior to shipping, the challenge for manufacturers is to reduce the amount of time and money spent on the quality inspection services while still obtaining the most accurate measurements possible. 


CMM and tactile measurement procedures that have been used in the past are typically too slow to allow the Core M machine to meet the extremely short measuring cycles required. In the same way, traditional laser or light measurement solutions are limited due to factors such as fixed-head orientation, measuring environment, reflective parts, and so on.

 

 

Series is not only ideal for increasing shop floor production speed, but it was also created to meet the needs of all customers who require high-speed CMM measurement. The optical measurement method used by the CORE, combined with the high dynamic linear motors, results in extremely short measuring cycles. The CORE is a surface independent optical CMM measuring machine, in contrast to other optical CMM measuring machines. This eliminates the time-consuming surface preparations required by the vast majority of optical systems.

 

If your customers demand 100% testing and inspection, there are really only two options available to you as a manufacturer: either you accept their demands or you don't.
1. Use low-cost 100% Inspection systems to save money – this can result in expensive "bad parts," fewer "good parts" to ship, and additional downtime due to slow, non-ideal testing methods.
a WENZEL CORE system that is high-speed and highly accurate, and that has been customized to meet the exact 100% Inspection requirements your customers require.
