Test automation

Test automation – the solution for efficient end-to-end quality monitoring

Compliance with today's requirements for products and their manufacturing processes calls for continuous improvements to quality and efficiency. Thanks to test automation, Kistler helps its customers to achieve both goals – always with the focus on added value.

Test automation means efficient 100% testing and sorting of series parts by automated test systems – either in the production line or as standalone solutions, especially for very large quantities. Test automation can guarantee part quality and prevent bad parts – but that's not all. Test results from camera-based image processing also make it possible to identify potential for optimizing production – so users benefit from extra added value.

To investigate the testing tasks you set for us, we carry out a feasibility analysis in our image processing laboratory.

Benefits of test automation:

  • In-depth advisory service with feasibility analyses of test assignments in our image processing laboratory
  • 100% testing of series parts
  • Large production quantities and fast cycle times
  • Enhanced process reliability and optimized process efficiency
  • Comprehensive recording and transmission of quality data
  • Reduced quality costs
  • Increased plant efficiency and lower total cost of ownership (TCO)
  • Rapid amortization (RoI)

In addition to its test automation portfolio, Kistler also offers a special laser marking system for continuously produced series parts (marking on the fly). Its purpose: to meet requirements for product traceability. Specialized software, high-performance industrial computers and highly efficient controls allow direct access to the acquired quality data, together with statistical evaluation. Thanks to all these features, our automated test systems play a key part in implementing Industry 4.0.
