Testing and Inspection Equipment
Setpoint integrates testing or inspection of your parts right into your automation equipment. Building in quality rather than inspecting out the quality parts is more efficient and builds better products in the long run. Whether you need non-destructive electrical testing, leak testing, or real-time radiography inspection, Setpoint has a solution that will meet and exceed your needs. Solutions include:
- Seamless and easy integration with your current production line
- Quick and accurate part processing with automated sequences and in process quality verifications
- WIP tracking measuring each part to validate against specific tolerances
- Ensured part compliance, no bad parts passed downstream
The Hardest Test Your Parts Will Ever Take
Setpoint has a long history of producing non-destructive testing and inspection equipment, and we consistently develop high-quality, accurate, and reliable equipment to our customers. When the end product is a life-saving device, it is crucial that we can ensure 100 percent inspection.
Setpoint has integrated thermo transient or resistance testing such as continuity, bridge-wire, or insulation tests; electrical tests, vision inspection, real time radiography x-ray inspections, and more. Setpoint builds machines customized to your specific needs and products. We can combine testing and inspections to provide you with a complete testing environment.
Testing and Inspection All within One Machine Real Time Radiography (RTR)
One of our customers came to us with a need for a non-destructive test and inspection in one machine for a high-volume assembly. They needed an automatic testing process that would still provide a high level of throughput.
Setpoint designed and built a custom solution combining x-ray inspection using RTR (Real Time Radiography) and an electrical test. Parts were processed in a three second cycle time through automated part on and offload, while increasing efficiencies.
- Reduced line floor space by 54% through combining the process of two machines into one
- Reduced scrap rate by 84%
- Decreased labor minutes per unit by 50%
- Increased throughput by 33%
The RTR x-ray provided a non-destructive inspection process that verified each part for accurate assembly. The filmless x-ray images and related data could be archived to DVDs or a network drive for storage and review. A simultaneous non-destructive electrical test ensured compliance of each part.
The entire inspection process took place in a certified, lead-lined containment cabinet to maintain safety. Additionally, the turn-key system was customizable for multiple parts within a family size, ensuring complete assembly and electrical compliance of each individual part.
The resulting system provided a complex solution with a compact footprint for easy integration into any new or existing process.
