Feds Turn Back on Baldrige

Feds Turn Back on Baldrige Despite last-ditch lobbying by industry, Congress has eliminated $9.6 million in funding support for the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program for 2012. Even though the federal money has accounted for nearly 20% of the program's budget, the private, nonprofit Baldrige Foundation plans to continue the program, relying on entry fees and the work of about 1,000 volunteers. Find out more about how the foundation will streamline the program, and learn about the latest winners, three of whom come from the health care industry. How important are the Baldige awards as a symbol of the national focus on quality?

3D Targets Auto Defects

3D Targets Auto Defects By using 3D cameras or positioning 2D cameras in stereo configurations, auto manufacturers and suppliers have vastly improved inspection of fuel and brake fluid piping, reports Design News. Alcon 3D, a global metrology company, chose high-resolution Marlin cameras for a system that determines pipe geometry, takes and records synchronous images, and measures bends of 5 to 180 degrees. The cameras also perform image pre-processing, such as debayering, color and shading correction, and image mirroring.

New Weapons in Food Safety Fight

New Weapons in Food Safety Fight With surveys showing rising consumer concern about food safety, Food Quality magazine reviews some of the latest technologies to detect contaminants and other problems. The OmniView multi-camera system provides fast inspection and traceability of cylindrical products, such as cans and bottles, without even turning labels to the camera. In packaging applications, MOCON's Greenlight system uses a sensor probe to identify microbial bacteria in meat, dairy, and seafood products (see video).

Make VOC Work for You

Make VOC Work for You Voice of the customer is a time-honored Six Sigma technique, but it can sidetrack your efforts if used improperly. This article cites several mistakes QC staff make with VOC and tells how to avoid them. Some examples: failure to identify all relevant customer groups and using the wrong data collection method for the type of information you need. You also need to translate customer statements to Critical-to-Quality characteristics.

Pharma Packaging Boosts QC

Pharma Packaging Boosts QC ProdX, an advanced connectivity software that provides centralized monitoring, control, and data documentation for checkweighers, metal detectors, and X-ray systems, heads the list of innovative ideas for 2012 in in this Pharmaceutical Technology article. Other notable advances include the TotalVu system for inspecting labels, closures, and fill levels, and anti-counterfeiting measures, such as Eastman Kodak's Traceless AD inkjet ink and reader. Read on for descriptions of improved materials and labeling for pharma packaging.

 
Software System for Statistical Quality
Control

Mettler-Toledo, Inc.
High Definition 2.8 Megapixel FireWire
Camera

Point Grey Research Inc.

Software System for Statistical Quality Control The network solution from METTLER TOLEDO for statistical quality control (SQC) of filling processes in food and pharmaceutical companies.

FreeWeight.Net not only systematically records and eliminates product defects, but it also drastically reduces unnecessary costs through overfilling. Pharmaceutical operations use FreeWeigh.Net to ensure quality control in compliance with FDA 21 CFR Part 11.

High Definition 2.8 Megapixel FireWire Camera The Grasshopper Express GX-FW-28S5 camera uses the highly sensitive Sony ICX674, a 2/3 in. CCD featuring 4.54 μ square pixels capable of sending 2.8 MP at 26 FPS. The sensor supports high definition 1080p30 and uses Sony's EXview HAD CCD II™ technology to improve quantum efficiency and reduce smear. Learn more.

Regulate Software as a Medical Device?

Regulate Software as a Medical Device? Manufacturers in the medical field are awaiting a new 2012 European Commission document that will give guidance on whether or not stand-alone medical software should carry the CE mark. This article sorts out the current regulatory climate, including the confusion that surrounds some applications. Example: Some hospital information software includes physician actions, such as medication updates, but the software does not currently fall within the scope of the EC's Medical Device Directive.

Making High-tech Cars Safe

Making High-tech Cars Safe How to ensure safety in autos that are getting increasingly complex, with such features as collision avoidance systems, lane-departure alarms, and backup warnings? ISO has taken that issue head-on with a new standard, ISO 26262, Road Vehicles — Functional Safety. The standard provides and supports an auto safety lifecycle, including management, development, production, operation, service, and decommissioning. It also outlines an automotive-specific, risk-based approach and addresses requirements for suppliers.

Analyze Vibration on the Go

Analyze Vibration on the Go Vibration analysis on machine tools and other production equipment can head off problems before they cause product defects or costly downtime. Now, factory staff can perform that analysis faster and easier with SpindleScope software running on an iPad (see video demo). With one touch, users can measure such parameters as acceleration, velocity, and temperature, then transmit data wirelessly to team members.

Transmitter Breakthrough Holds NDT Promise

Transmitter Breakthrough Holds NDT Promise Researchers at Germany's Technical University of Darmstadt have developed a terahertz transmitter that has generated the highest frequency ever attained by a microelectronic device, paving the way for new applications in nondestructive testing. To overcome size and cost hurdles affecting terahertz transmitters, the team designed a resonance tunnel diode (RTD) that measures less than one square millimeter. The RTD can also be produced using conventional semiconductor fabrication technologies.

 
Ultraviolet (UV) Light Source
Instrument Technology, Inc.
APU-9347-B02 Kiosk Printer
Telpar

Ultraviolet (UV) Light Source The Model 125150 Ultraviolet Light Source is a special ITI UV light source used with a borescope or as a very intense UV spot light. Special UV transmitting fibers or liquid light guides conduct illumination through the length of the system to provide UV at MIL-STD intensity levels. From Instrument Technology, Inc.

APU-9347-B02 Kiosk Printer Rated for a minimum of 150 km total printing and at least 1,000,000 cuts, the APU-9347 from Telpar doesn't quit. A 10 in. diameter paper roll support means lower operating costs and an 8 in./second print speed. Support for a range of paper thicknesses ensures rapid delivery of receipts, tickets, or labels — every time.
