Both these segments are very ably supported by our In-house flagship software PC-DMIS.

    • Smart Factory - By Tom A Stewart12:00 PM

      While traditional manufacturing and smart manufacturing contain many similar technologies, how they are used together with some new sources of data make the difference. Essentially, the latter pushes Sensing, thinking and Acting closer to production and takes advantage of the process parameters (vibration, torque to turn, feed force, temperatures, etc..) to replace physical part quality measurement. Resulting in Higher quality, increased machine & tool productivity, higher customer satisfaction and profitability. Integration of ISO/ISA/SAE international standards is critical in order to have valid and useful data. Aerospace included! There is a lot of marketing Hype (Industry 4.0) however the correct and cost effective path can be found if you work with the right company (HxGN-Q-DAS). The AQDEF is a critical point for the automatic collection and analysis of data, saves time and money, makes the analysis meaningful. Don’t forget that one important point.. it is still about empowering the employees of our customers to be more effective and efficient. Stick to the standards, work with the right partners, be successful.
