Q&A eBook with Advanced Material Solutions: The Importance of Non-destructive Testing in Manufacturing

Competitive forces are driving unheard-of levels of innovation in product design, materials and lean manufacturing processes. A rigorous and proactive approach to risk containment is essential to protect your brand and bottom line.

Today’s non-destructive testing field is comprised of several commonly utilized techniques and several others that aren’t as commonly employed. Each technique has its advantages and limitations. No single method is superior, however, AMS’ expertise lies in the team’s ability to identify and deploy the ideal inspection method for each project at the best overall value.

Find out more about non-destructive testing, future-proofing best practices, and financial justification in the Q&A eBook with Advanced Material Solutions below!

ffffffff

Join us at the American Manufacturing Summit March 28-29, 2017 in Chicago, IL to hear the President of Advanced Material Solutions, Peter Miller, speak on “Future-Proofing Manufacturing Through Non-destructive Testing.”

Top Medical Device Industry Regulations—and Why They Matter

It’s important to keep up with compliance mandates because the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) keeps a close watch on the medical device industry. If there is an accident involving your devices, it could damage the lives of your patients and the reputation of your company.

This article focuses on the most significant FDA quality regulatory programs to be aware of, and tips on how to avoid fines and court action for non-compliance.

eBook: Avoid Catastrophic Events by Future-Proofing with NDT

“The automotive industry is in the midst of an unprecedented transformation, including improving safety features. Inspection and quality control are the most important safety tools in today’s business world.”

Non-destructive testing has been utilized for more than one hundred years and has come a long way since the early years. For example, today the proactive use of NDT can eliminate non-conforming parts from incoming material streams. By assuming a proactive NDT approach, manufacturers are able to catch nonconformances that aren’t detectable by visual or functional inspections. Our pioneers would be proud.

Peter Miller, President of Advanced Material Solutions (AMS), shares his insights on the topic of future-proofing in the manufacturing industry, highlighting four key steps manufacturers should take to approach non-destructive testing in this Q & A with Generis.

Success Story: Reducing Radar Component Test Time by 75% and Improving Vehicle Passenger Safety

Recently, Averna was faced with a tough challenge. 

Autoliv Inc. needed an automated tester for a Short Range Radar Digital Signal Processing Board used in passenger vehicles. The tester needed to perform 2 batch process model executions in parallel, controlling 12 UUTs simultaneously in high‑volume production.

Now, fortunately, this is a consumer success story, and Averna was able to use NI TestStand and NI PXI products to develop a tester with a shared hardware architecture that allows the customer to exploit the full potential of its test instruments.

Averna’s solution has reduced UUT testing and loading time by 75% while boosting throughput and ensuring stringent quality standards.
