Anritsu, Elk Grove Village, Ill., developed the Detection360 proprietary process, designed to advance quality control programs by securing all points of detection within the processing environment while reducing risks associated with unwanted contaminants or missing items in products while increasing efficiencies.
The Detection360 process involves four phases:
1. Discovery Phase. In Phase 1, Anritsu’s technical sales team begins by understanding the vision of current and future quality control programs, mutually identifying needs and reviewing quality concerns to define all inspection opportunities and production line details throughout every aspect of the production and packaging process. Understanding goals, processes, packaging, end users/customers and the ingredients associated with production allows an accurate assessment of risk from physical contaminants or fill/packaging issues.
2. Mapping Phase. Inspection technology is “mapped” throughout the processing and packaging lines with a focus on correctly and effectively applying advanced technology to resolve high-priority quality concerns. This phase includes a full application review, matching equipment through proprietary AISIS software and product testing. AISIS mapping provides detailed and accurate detection estimates, and assures the provided solution is proven prior to manufacturing and delivery.
3. Integration Phase. Anritsu properly integrates and commissions the AISIS MAPPED technology and solutions from its broad range of standard and semi-custom equipment offerings with a focus to advance current quality control programs by maximizing the detection and inspection capabilities of the technology. Proper integration is critical to the success of the project and assures investment is maximized.
4. Performance Phase. The integration of technology in conjunction with Anritsu’s commitment to performance assures advancement in quality control programs. To assure performance, safety and quality, Anritsu offers basic and advanced training, preventative-service programs and operational equipment reviews, as well as quality-management programs that enhance and assure each investment is properly maintained and operated at its peak level of performance.
