Heye: “quality is at the controls”


The Heye QCLab software solution is designed to evaluate the quality status and appraise the future trend of container glass production. All resulting data is linked both to the production line and to mould number. In combination with the Heye plant management system, it is now possible to have a complete overview on production in terms of quality and efficiency.

The increasing quality requirements require constant evaluation and improvement of quality levels. Hence, quality control and process observation have become more important. The information resulting from statistical quality control draws conclusions regarding the quality level and gives the opportunity to identify and control possible improvements regarding the production process.
The quality of glass production is usually ensured by inspection machines in the cold end, such as the Heye SmartLine.

This missing data is typically collected in the laboratory or by offline-inspection by periodical test series.
The Heye QCLab software solution is designed to provide the opportunity to evaluate the quality status and to appraise the future trend. Improvement results are recorded and a reduction of production costs can result. The QCLab is well adapted to the requirements of container glass production, with data linked to the production line as well as to mould number. QCLab records all measured values and calculate charts such as Gaussian curve, box plot, scatter plot or...
