Franke Water Systems AG KWC uses ZEISS T-SCAN for quality assurance at every production stage
KWC uses preventive inspection of the tools as well as the cast parts to avoid scrap and rework costs.
Additionally, ZEISS T-SCAN is used for inspection after the grinding and polishing process. With just a few mouse clicks, the operator generates a report that serves as the basis for the coordination with the surface processing department. "It doesn't get any more intuitive than that" commented Agim Emini, Head Quality KWC of Franke Water Systems KWC.
This extremely intuitive reporting was particularly useful in the most important test of ZEISS T-SCAN up to now: the relocation of the existing products to the new robotic grinding system. Thanks to continuous measurement with ZEISS T-SCAN and ongoing adjustment of the grinding parameters, the grinding robots now work both precisely and very quickly.
However, if a systemic quality problem appears, e.g. if several consecutive cast part exceed the tolerances, errors can be quickly identified with ZEISS T-SCAN. Thanks to the available measured data, the Toolmaking Department can act immediately.
