The Quality Manager at Siemens informed InspecVision that before they purchased the Planar they were ‘inspecting parts manually’. Their manual method was very time consuming.They have found that inspection of the parts is ‘more effective by using Planar machine than the old manual method used’.

Siemens commented that the ‘Planar machine has also helped shorten new product development periods and has also increased the quality control of the products’. They have noticed bene ts with their general output also as they informed us that ‘the Planar machine has reduced our inspection time by 80%. We now inspect about 90% more parts than before...on average we would now inspect around two hundred and fifty parts per week’.
