Design of Gauges

16 to 17 July, 2019,
Quality is very important to any industry for proper business and reputation. We all know that the quality is achieved by production and not by inspection, but we need to inspect to know the produced quality. We cannot depend on Standard Room to assess the quality of a parameter of a part, as it takes long time and the machine has to wait till the results come. Also many parts would be waiting in the queue. Machine has to be idle which means loss of money. We need to inspect in the shop immediately after the first part is produced. We cannot always use instruments for all parameters of checking, as the instruments are not tailor made for the required parameters.
