NEXYGENPlus gives materials testers direct interface

Lloyd Instruments : 31 March, 2007  (Company News)
The new NEXYGENPlus software interface for the Lloyd Instruments range of
The new NEXYGENPlus software interface for the Lloyd Instruments range of ‘Plus’ and EZ materials testing machines now allows materials testers to be seamlessly integrated into production lines. NEXYGENPlus facilitates integration with production control systems and statistical process control packages, and can even be configured to issue operator warnings if a sample fails a particular test.

NEXYGENPlus allows a wide range of tests to be configured, ranging from user-defined tests to international standard tests from its test library. Any testing protocol established using NEXYGENPlus can be initiated by an operator or can be handed over to a production line controller such as a PLC.

Variation in manufacturing processes can result either in inadequate product quality, which in turn leads to increased scrap material or expensive re-working. By monitoring a process using SPC, it is possible to detect process variation before it is serious enough to have produced product that is out of tolerance. NEXYGENPlus can continuously monitor SPC data and can be configured to issue alerts to the supervisor, for example by e-mail, if the process is moving away from the required parameters.

Data can be automatically exported to SPC analysis packages without any intervention from the operator. SPC graphs can be displayed without even having to view the standard results graph.
