Keep the eDART Running – All Data May Be Valuable

We find that some customers who started with cavity pressure on the eDART tend to use it only on molds that have sensors in them. As a corollary to tips # 117 and # 118 (data and part sampling) and tip # 73 (machine values the eDART computes) you find that the eDART...

The Sample Output

You will find, when you try to sample parts, that sometimes they are hard to catch. Some customers have the rejects going straight into the grinder. So using the “Reject” switch on the Part Sampling tool is not helpful. Others have the robot placing parts,...

Finding Correlations to Part Quality with eDARTs

The attached paper came out of some discussions with customers about “how do you do a DOE?” In one case just a few minutes before he was starting one.What is “D.O.E.?”The acronym stands for “Design of Experiments” (“Doing of Experiments according to Bob Launsby). In...

Graphing Parts Measurements

If you have proceeded to do an experiment with part sampling (as in Tip # 34) and have entered your measurements with the Measurement Entry tool on the Analyzer then it is wise to check your entries using the Summary Graph. You can add the just entered measurements by...

Adding Part Sampling to the Main Menu

If you are not using the Summary Graph and want to add the Part Sampling tool to the eDART’s Main Menu then you can drag it onto the System space in the Architect. This works for any eDART tool that you might want to add to the main menu or remove from it (by dragging...

Part Sampling After the Fact

Returning to Part Sampling and Correlation…One of our customers could not get the Part Sampling tool to start on a validated eDART (October 23, 2003 software release). We’re not yet sure why. It is supposed to be there. I wrote some help to him to get him going since...
