Depending on the application an onsite visit is optional by our Technical and Project Management Team. Some are simple whilst others more complex.
For example; Advanced Manufacturing
In discussion with a high volume component manufacturer on what to measure on their paint line it was agreed on the site visit that ‘we’ were unnecessarily restricting the outcome of the attributes being looked at; Humidity, Air flow, Temperature and Pressure.
Upon the review we felt that there were important further insights to be gained by additionally monitoring how those desired levels are achieved.
Taking Air Flow as one example:
Looking at the interrelationship between all these factors this gave the maintenance team much more to work with when trying to determine what is happening on the output end “the air is not moving enough”, “the air flow varies too much”. If all the fans are blowing a constant velocity then if the air flow varies we know it is not the fans and something else (something in the paint line causing eddies) or the measurement is taken in the wrong place.
Other example potential items that we suggested to measure:
In the above example, it was agreed that there was a need in measuring and monitoring a wider range of needs that would benefit the control and costs. This was only achieved by being onsite.
We are keen that all our clients maximise the benefit from utilising our technology and due to the innovative nature of our solution it helps to assess and engage with those onsite.
