From Dr Martin Raines - ten ways your business could benefit from Tolcap use:
- Reduce time to market
Avoid time consuming re-design caused by incorrect tolerancing.
- Reduce levels of scrap and re-work
By allocating process capable
tolerances at the design stage.
- Better informed design decisions
Reducing the risk of delay necessary for re-design.
- Improve product quality
Reduce the number of failures experienced by customers caused by incorrect tolerance allocation.
- Reduce cost
All of the above lower the cost of product development and manufacture!
- Traceable design
The Tolcap analysis can be saved for future engineers to assess “why did we allocate that tolerance?”
- Standard tolerance allocation method
Ensures consistency in tolerance allocation and helps with the integration of new engineers into a business.
- Supplier liaison
Discussions with suppliers on process capability can have a common basis.
- Assist in process selection
Compare the process capability potential of alternative manufacturing processes.
- Protect the environment
Reduce levels of scrap and re-work which use precious material and energy resources.
