Quality assurance/quality control of manufacturing processes often involve a large amount of mechanical testing—tensile and flex primarily. These tests are well defined by standards and demand a high level of consistency. They can be time-consuming and repetitive, and subject to variability. This presentation offers tools and solutions for improving your lab operations. This paper will help lab managers and technicians/operators identify pain points that are typical of repetitive, manual processes that could benefit from some level of automation; and learn about automation solutions that exist to make better use of skilled labor and improve efficiency, ranging from simple tasks such as specimen measurement to fully automated robotic systems.
Quality control testing can be challenging
