ZEISS Industrial Quality Solutions division offers multidimensional metrology solutions which include coordinate measuring machines, optical and multisensor systems and powerful metrology software for the automotive, aircraft, mechanical engineering, plastic and medical technology industries.
While talking at the mojo4industry technical workshop on how to improve your productivity in quality control systems Mounesh Achar, PSM & Channel Management, Industrial Quality Solutions, Carl ZEISS India (Bangalore) Pvt Ltd (ZEISS Group) explains the role of metrology solutions especially that of measuring and inspection systems in improving productivity in quality control systems. He said, “Implementing quality control procedures ensures that a manufacturer is selling the best products to his/her customers. Also quality control can inspire employees to create high quality goods leading to greater customer satisfaction. So, the right quality control system helps to improve productivity by detecting defects early in the process.” He adds, “A right quality control system also helps to lower inspection costs and use resources in the most cost effective manner.”
He suggests that implementing right automation solutions in the quality control system and installing shop-floor measurement solution for 100% inspection could be some of the options the users can think of to improve the productivity.
A right quality system with futuristic technology and features like ZEISS CONTURA would help to adopt and react much faster to one’s customer needs, Mr Mounesh summarizes while explaining the role of measuring and inspection systems in improving productivity in quality control systems.
ZEISS CONTURA Co-ordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) known for absolute versatility and flexibility. The new generation model is equipped with the ZEISS multi-application sensor system (mass) technology, which makes it possible to exchange different sensor technologies quickly and easily.
According to Mr Mounesh, the USP of ZEISS CONTURA includes less complexity, reduced operation times, decrease operating costs, improved operator friendliness, and robustness. Also, availability of worldwide sales and service makes a ZEISS machine preferred choice of manufacturers globally.
Also discussing at the workshop, Uday Dixit, Product Sales Manager, Industrial Quality Solutions, Carl ZEISS India (Bangalore) Pvt Ltd (ZEISS Group) presents the ZEISS O-DETECT optical measuring machine that offers intuitive operation, high-quality camera and flexible lighting for precise measurement in an instant. This high-end solution is suitable for a variety of components, but mainly for those that are best left untouched.
According to Mr Dixit, some of the advantages of ZEISS O-DETECT include excellent optics, versatile and easy to upgrade, simple part navigation and visualization, stable precision, intuitive and user-friendly software, and professional and actionable reports.
Manufacturing sector in India is going through a transformation. A lot of technology developments happening in that particular space thanks to the government initiatives like “Make in India” and “Atmanirbhar Bharat”. Talking about the demand of advanced measuring and inspection systems in this context, Uday Dixit, Product Sales Manager, Industrial Quality Solutions, Carl ZEISS India (Bangalore) Pvt Ltd (ZEISS Group) said, “The measuring instruments are playing a big role. Earlier only big OEMs used to buy a very complex or very high-end measuring solutions, but now we see even a tire 2 or tire 3 customers are also buying advanced measuring instruments to improve their quality and this is going to grow for sure.”
He adds, “Today manufacturers are not only aiming for making in India but also to export from here. In both this cases, measuring instruments will play a very big role.” According to Mr. Dixit, global chip shortage and government push for electric vehicles are driving the growth for measuring and inspection systems in India. He believes that industries like manufacturing, aerospace and medical will continue to drive the demand.
We know that increasing productivity and efficiency remains the main goal for any manufacturing facility. Industrial quality analysis plays a critical role towards achieving high productivity and efficiency as it enables measurement and inspection of all parts without interrupting the production cycle. So, we recommend adoption of advanced metrology solutions which will help in achieving higher productivity and efficiency.
