Cognitive Measuring

QASS is the specialist for component evaluation, for process optimization, crack detection and tool monitoring. If it comes to crack detection during bending and straightening processes, QASS is the world market leader. Our new method of High-Frequency-Impulse-Measuring (HFIM) has set new standards.

Cognitive Measuring is interpretive measuring. Optimizer4D recognizes all by itself and in real-time, if a production process exceeds tolerance thresholds. QASS-systems analyze big amounts of sensory data, in real-time, and they identify hidden patterns.

The combination of cognitive measuring and high-frequency acoustic emission develops a new dimension of process data analysis. Formerly, many processes just delivered noise to a evaluation system. Now it’s possible to gain insights out of these noisy processes that describe the condition of tool and component. By this, machines can evaluate themselves and detect if the last process step was successful or not.

Find the optimum of speed and quality for machining processes: evaluate the edges of a machining tool in real-time and detect chatter marks or broken edges.

Faulty components generate a characteristic HFIM-pattern during the process. Optimizer4D is able to detect and to discharge these components automatically.

Do you run your process with the highest possible speed? How far can you expand the maintenance interval of your machines before quality deteriorates? Optimizer4D can answer these questions.

Since years, QASS defines the standard of high-precision Crack Detection, especially for straightening processes. Destruction-free quality evaluation of component and material is our expertise. With High-Frequency-Impulse-Measurement (HFIM), it’s easy to reliably detect cracks and to distinguish real cracks from (putative) false rejects.
