Bright AM was designed to manage and support additive manufacturing’s unique challenges – tracking the process of disparate parts 3D-printed together on a single plate as well as everything from incoming orders to work-in-progress to delivery confirmation.
Super Systems Inc. of Cincinnati, Ohio, completed a controls and software upgrade for JTEKT Corporation’s Koyo Bearings brand. The project will deliver more efficiencies through technology enhancements in the heat-treating operation at JTEKT’s Dahlonega, Ga., manufacturing facility. The scope of the investment includes all engineering, installation, controls and software for the company’s gas-fired hardening furnace line.
Last but certainly not least, as the saying goes, is our discussion of gas nitriding and nitrocarburizing process simulators and how they are used to predict and control these case-hardening processes. Let's learn more.
The acceptance of low-pressure (vacuum) carburizing (LPC) technology in manufacturing is due in large part to the ease of recipe development and modification made possible by the use of simulators designed specifically for this purpose. Let's learn more.
BlueDocs is a module within Bluestreak MES | QMS that allows complete management of corporate documents such as quality and training manuals, operating and work instructions, and any single or group of documents you need to control.
Software is an integral part of temperature-profiling technology, covering all process aspects from sensor connection, calibration, data analysis and report generation. Because profiling software is essential to effective profiling performance, software selection is important. This article will outline key considerations during the selection process.
Cost of quality (CoQ) is a hot topic right now. There have even been committees formed in various trade groups to take a closer look at CoQ. You probably have had internal discussions about the CoQ in your company and how those costs compare to other heat treaters.
