KAIZEN PROJECTS FOR METROLOGY LABORATORIES
It is very common for metrology laboratories to become “bottleneck processes” in companies. This happens for several reasons, such as: lack of time, excess demand for measurements and many others.
We normally see metrology activities as frozen processes (mainly to maintain what is agreed with your customers), but have you ever considered having a dedicated professional to evaluate not only your measurement systems, but also all activities present in your laboratory?
In this type of work, a complete evaluation of your laboratory's activities will be carried out (as previously agreed), and an initial report will be prepared which will serve as a parameter for identifying opportunities for improvement and defining work strategies, as well as preparing for the execution of the defined projects.
A more efficient laboratory can transform your company's reality.
Equipment such as coordinate measuring machines, profile gauges, optical machines, measuring arms and many others currently present in our metrology laboratories are, without a doubt, fundamental resources for the day-to-day activities of many companies. But the elaboration of measurement programs for this equipment usually takes time, which laboratories do not always have.
Relying on the support of a professional specialized in this equipment is essential to avoid overloading your laboratory's technical staff.
All of our measurement programs are designed using your equipment to the full, seeking to achieve not only great efficiency, but also reliability, which is proven through individual validations, in addition, operational instructions and training of technical staff for use are prepared. of these routines.
WORK INSTRUCTIONS TO STANDARDIZE YOUR ROUTINES
We devote a lot of time to standardizing our production processes, but we don't always do this in our metrology labs.
The use of proper operating instructions not only facilitates the qualification and training of new employees, but also ensures the standardization of measurement activities.
Just as standardization can improve the capability of production processes, it will bring greater reliability to metrological processes.
Count on the elaboration of adequate documents prepared in a personalized way to meet the needs of your company.
QUALITY TOOLS, MASP AND MSA WORKING IN FAVOR OF YOUR LABORATORY
We use a unique work methodology developed using quality tools combined with the concepts of MASP and MSA for the validation of measurement systems, identification and treatment of sources of variance.

HOW MUCH TIME DOES YOUR LABORATORY DEDICATE TO REPORTING?
The quality of dimensional reports is a critical factor for any laboratory. That's why ensuring that your reports deliver all the information needed by your lab's customers in a clear and straightforward manner is very important.
Even better when these reports can be automated, many labs spend a lot of time filling out dimensional reporting forms.
We can create custom mask reports for dimensional reports that make the most of your lab's automation capabilities.
