InfinityQS International, Inc., provider of real-time quality control software solutions, has announced that Rainin Instruments, LLC has selected its ProFicient Statistical Process Control (SPC) software to drive quality, throughput and cost-cutting initiatives. Rainin, a producer of laboratory pipettes and related laboratory liquid handling products and a wholly owned subsidiary of Mettler-Toledo International, manufactures and sells products across Europe, the US and China.
Rainin's high-volume injection molding operations require continual testing of in-production products through periodic sampling. The InfinityQS SPC system gives Rainin complete visibility into process capabilities so they know exactly when quality issues occur. Equally as important, Rainin's quality team is using advanced analysis tools to identify areas where quality improvement will yield the greatest cost savings.
Dr. David Greenwood, head of quality solutions for Rainin, said, "At Rainin, quality is vital to every product we make. InfinityQS gives us the confidence to know that our lines are running properly and that we are producing each part to specification. Furthermore, it will allow us to expand our quality system into the supply chain and help define Rainin's team approach to quality control."
Rainin is also using InfinityQS' Remote Alarm Monitor Service (RAMS) and Remote Event Monitor Service (REMS) to automate events and actions based on real-time conditions on the plant floor. These tools allow Rainin's quality control system to run "lights out" while alerting the appropriate personnel if action needs to be taken.
Michael Lyle, CEO of InfinityQS, said, "By using quality control as a cost-cutting initiative, Rainin is enhancing profits. The systems it is putting in place let the company know its exact capabilities so it can take the appropriate steps to ensure 100 percent compliance with minimal waste. When an issue does occur, ProFicient gives Rainin the intelligence to identify and eliminate the root cause before the issue has an opportunity to escalate into an actual defect or even a recall."
InfinityQS' ProFicient is a proven, powerful and intelligent real-time SPC software solution. Many of the world's leading manufacturers have standardized on ProFicient to monitor quality benchmarks, provide full traceability across the supply chain, and meet regulatory compliance such as 21 CFR Part 11 and customer reporting requirements. While closely monitoring production and testing processes in real time, it also builds a global quality database while enabling users to analyze results with a vast library of SPC reports.
