Topic: Surface Defect Detection
Speaker: Drew Schiltz, Zeiss Industrial Metrology Group
Abstract: Current universal methods for quality control in relation to defects, both cosmetic and functional, largely rely on the human visual inspection process. There are numerous reasons to move away from this outdated process: human visual inspection is subjective in nature, thresholds are set conservatively leading to reduced yield, escaped defects are still common, and the strenuous work is unattractive to the employee. To truly realize Industry 4.0 the visual inspection process must be automated with a suitable level of information acquired, analyzed and stored for immediate feedback on problems that may arise in the manufacturing process. Addressing this problem, Zeiss has developed SurfMax, a system designed to meet the need for robust and quantitative visual inspection that customers require in high-throughput and highly automated manufacturing. The core technology facilitates a high degree of sensitivity and proper classification of even the smallest changes in form and gloss level on a myriad of part finishes, colors and geometries. Results from the inspection can be stored long term, enabling a digital record of the part surface quality that can be referenced in the future as is needed. This presentation will examine the difficulties of replacing the human visual inspection process and how this is now being successfully addressed with SurfMax. An overview of the technology will be provided with an outlook on how Zeiss is empowering its customers to achieve a higher level of quality, decision making, feedback control, and long-term record keeping in the manufacturing process.
Topic: Recent Changes to ISO/IEC 17025:2017
Speaker: Randy Long, ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB)
Abstract: This presentation will cover a short history of the ISO/IEC 17025 standard & the ILAC related policy documents, ISO/CASCO working group (WG) 44 activities, a brief overview of ISO/IEC 17025:2017, and a summary of the major changes from ISO/IEC 17025:2005.
