Capable gages are the prerequisite for an objective assessment of measurements and the decisions derived from them. Use the convenient possibilities of a computer-aided gage management to ensure the trustworthiness of your gages and measuring equipment.
Babtec.PMM provides you with an extensive instrument for the clear management, monitoring and maintenance of your gages. Each gage is uniquely identified with a gage number and assigned to a gage type based on its design. The data management is supported by the use of catalogs, e.g. for gage types, locations or statuses. Every location or status change (e.g. inspection or maintenance) of a gage is documented in Babtec.PMM via an entry in the gage history.
An effective process for ensuring the operational state of your gages lies in performing periodic control checks. One of the requirements here is to define meaningful inspection intervals for every gage so that deviations can be determined in due time and only capable gages are used in your product manufacturing process. Depending on the inspection process involved and usage site, your gages may be stressed differently. If a gage is subjected to increased wear at a certain usage site, then the defined time interval is dynamically adjusted.
For the performance of control checks, Babtec.PMM provides an extensive library of inspection instructions, which can be used immediately without any additional planning effort. The instructions are based on the current guidelines according to VDI/VDE/DGQ 2618. The determination of the gage-specific nominal values is based on the current DIN standards. Of course, you can also use the existing instructions as templates for own or specialized inspection instructions.
The data recording of results for internally performed calibrations or control checks can be done via keyboard as well as automated via interfaces for transferring the measured value directly from the gage, a measuring instrument or inspection device. All stored inspection results can be used for the creation of inspection certificates, reports or performance indicators.
