SPC for Metallurgy Industry SPC Vision for Metallurgy SPC Vision – Innovative Solutions for Quality Control Infodream have a strong history of working in the metallurgy industry with many leading companies using our Process Control Software (SPC Vision). Repeatability and consistency are critical to high quality metallurgy manufacturing and SPC Vision helps you Understand, Monitor, Control and Improve the quality and productivity of the manufacturing processes. Business Benefits – Control & Efficiency Applications Aid continuous processing through prevention of scrap and re-processing Reduce cycle time by real time ‘in-process’ monitoring & control Release products faster by real time data collection and validation Enhance process understanding of critical product & process attributes Forging Casting Roll Forming Machining Treatments Extrusion Business Benefits Increase Productivity & Efficiency Production stops and quality problems have a huge impact in long run or continuous processing commonly found in the metallurgy industry. SPC Vision is a preventative process control system which helps increase up-time and productivity by preventing scrap, and reprocessing. Prevent poor quality, scrap and re-processing Reduce cycle time by utilising ‘in-process’ monitoring to remove final inspection, offline analysis and reporting Real Time QA & Process Control SPC Vision provides real time monitoring, control and validation of critical process and product attributes to ensure quality standards have been achieved. Real time validation of products to quality standards Build in quality by managing the variation of critical quality attributes using SPC(statistical process control) Monitor process capability to predict & prevent poor quality Increased Process Understanding Gaining a thorough understanding of the relationships between materials, manufacturing process , the environment and their combined effect on product quality is the key to effective process control, improvement and development. Identify & evaluate critical product & process variables Understand interactions between product & process for predictive control Determine product and process specifications based on process understanding SPC Vision Key Features User Friendly Real Time QA Dashboard Powerful SPC & Quality Tools Process Capability & Correlation Process Alarms & Events Real time validation reporting Standard operating instructions Automatic Data Input Central Secure Data storage Extended Traceability Secure log-in and electronic stamps Integration with ERP & MES Inspection Version control Complementary modules Client examples Snecma Gennevilliers Business: OEM of aerospace engine casings Manufacturing Processes: Lost wax precision foundry Alloys Nickel, Cobalt 6 melting furnaces SPC Vision provides real time monitoring and control of critical attributes: 18 critical process attributes Off-line analysis has been eliminated by real time SPC saving 2 days per month Reaction time to analysis has been drastically reduced.
