In order to stay competitive, manufacturers across industries are integrating force sensing and pressure mapping capabilities into their machines and processes. Sensors quantify what is happening in the manufacturing process, from validating machine setup to measuring the forces on a delicate product going through the production line. These capabilities allow manufacturers to:

  • Implement error-proofing procedures and help validate those processes for regulatory agencies (like the FDA);
  • Reduce waste in the manufacturing processes, which can translate to reduced cost of goods, increased profit, and reduced carbon footprint;
  • Streamline processes to avoid supply chain disruptions and stay competitive.

One global food and beverage processing company with plants around the world was implementing a corporate initiative to standardize their quality control procedures, and engineers needed to devise a way for production technicians to conduct evenness testing on a piece of packaging equipment in several facilities.
