Benefits of Quality Control

By performing inspection of parts during the first piece, in-process and final stages of production, there are multiple benefits to both us the manufacturer and you, the customer.

  • Improve productivity
  • Reduce defect rates
  • Reduce re-work and waste

Advantech’s High Standard of Quality Control

Several of our customers have recognized us with self-release status. Our quality control is so advanced and accurate that these customers have shown the ultimate in trust: after our inspection, we have permission to ship manufactured parts straight from our dock to their assembly areas.

Our Star Inspection Machines

For a complete list of all shop machines and equipment, visit our Facilities page.

Coordinate Measure Machine (CMM)

This machine uses a needle as a probe, recording the most precise and accurate measurements of parts. The CMM will compare the finished piece to the approved CAD files, ensuring that the part is EXACTLY what you ordered.

FabriVision

We use this machine for pieces which are flat. It works like a scanner, taking precise dimensions of the actual piece and comparing it to the blueprint. The scan takes very little time, so first piece approvals happen fast, which lends to our Mission Critical Manufacturing mantra.

Smart Scope

For those smaller pieces that require microscopic inspection, the Smart Scope uses optics and light beams to check for precision.

Surface Plate Inspection

The flat surface serves as a horizontal baseline for all measurements. One of the more versatile stations in our Inspection Department, our team can use this as a standalone, or adapt different instruments to work in tandem with the Surface Plate.
