Industry leader in insulating gas measurement with devices that are developed and made in Helsinki, Finland, Sparklike is the developer of the world’s first and only non-destructive gas fill analyzers for insulating glass windows and doors. Sparklike devices are based on its proprietary and patented technology, which allows insulating glass manufacturers to measure the insulating gas concentration – without having to break the insulating glass unit.
Sparklike devices are used daily by world leading insulating glass manufacturers, testing laboratories and window manufacturers. And since it has been estimated that quality costs account for approximately 20% of company’s annual turnover, in this month’s newsletter, Sparklike has published an article in which it lists the different ways to reduce quality-related costs. This categorisation and point-by-point presentation makes it easy for companies to identify and successfully manage their quality-related costs in a revenue enhancing way, while keeping their production quality in line with customer expectations.
Jarno Hartikainen, Sparklike’s Development Manager: “It is particularly challenging trying to manage the quality-related manufacturing costs, if the actual cost factors are not rigorously determined,” says Sparklike’s Development Manager, Jarno Hartikainen, the author of the article. The article centres around the quality costs and the cost management measures. When accurately managed, companies can expect an important reduction in costs as well as a significant increase in their gross profit.
