Data hub software connects to leak test instruments at one or more stations along a production line to collect, store and analyze data. This information is used for monitoring the leak testing process and to analyze historical data to identify trends and areas for improvement.
Data Hubs Improve Leak Test Efficiency and Reduce Cycle Times
Data hub software provides real-time data so you can identify and resolve issues immediately and stores historical data for analyzing trends, patterns and anomalies. The QualityWorX CTS DataHub improves the efficiency of your leak testing without slowing down your production line and optimizes tests to meet quality and yield objectives. With a data collection device integrated into your production line, you gain instant visibility into your tests for continuous improvement.
Using the QualityWorX CTS DataHub helps you achieve faster cycle times and reduces bottlenecks that can slow down your leak testing station. A case study of the QualityWorX CTS DataHub on an automotive transmission assembly line resulted in a 21% reduction in cycle time and an 11.5% increase in First Time Through (FFT) rates. The waveform data provided by the sentinel data hub also helped the manufacturer identify areas where they could improve quality and productivity.
