SAN DIEGO, Calif.—Dependability and quality don't just happen. It takes a little bit of magic to get things just right.
Morgan Polymer Seals has built its reputation on its Zero PPM goal—that is, zero defective parts per million. To achieve that aim, the company has brought a little bit of in-house MAGIC—Morgan Automated Gasket Inspection Control—into its manufacturing process.
"We wanted inspection capabilities beyond what a 'stock' vision inspection machine could offer," Leonardo Meza, Morgan Polymer Seals' engineering and automation coordinator, said in an email interview. "In addition to the expectation of zero defects, automotive sealing programs are typically high volume, requiring a high-speed solution that could inspect several parts per second. Automation is the best way to achieve this."
