Automated and continuous ballooning across revision levels.

Transparency increases the level of quality, including that of purchased parts.

 

Challenges

Design and manufacturing at BERNINA follow the motto "Turning creative ideas into technical reality".  Accordingly, the company pursues the constant optimization of processes..

  • Search for solution that ensures that even after drawing changes, the features retain the originally assigned numbers
  • Optimization of statistical quality evaluation
  • Improving the quality of purchased parts
  • Immense amount of time required for stamping the approximately 1,300 different series products
“We were also able to connect our rather inflexible CAQ system. Now the inspection characteristics are automatically transferred to the CAQ system and supplemented there with the required inspection equipment. This is how inspections can be automated.“

Goals

Closing the gap between design, production and quality department..

  • Connection of the CAQ system
  • Inspection planning automation
  • Transparency and increase in the quality level of purchased parts
  • Reduction of the time effort
“Automated creation of balloons and related documents has a number of advantages. On the one hand, we have a time saving. [...] We also manage to provide our initial sample documents to the purchasing department in time to request the purchased parts [...]“
