Why Factory Systems?

Our Solutions

Increase Efficiency

You can’t improve your machine efficiencies if you can’t measure them. Our OEE data collection will record every Up, Down, and Idle machine state along with the part counts and part qualities thus providing baseline OEE data that you can use to compare to after changes are made. It is amazing how your bottom line will improve as your OEE soars.

Reduce Cost

There are hidden costs throughout manufacturing facilities. Some include searching for parts, machining the same parts a second or third time and shipping parts to your customers that have missed a small but important operation. Our FACSTrack software will follow your parts from incoming inspection throughout production to insure that each part is machined once and does not miss any steps along the way. You customers will be reassured that you are providing them with the parts they expect.

Improve Quality

Trend alarms can be enabled that monitor your processes and alert the user based on subtle trends that may not be obvious to the human eye. This gives the user ample time to adjust the machine before it is necessary to rework parts that are less than perfect. This can also be done using our “Closed Loop” feedback directly to the machine, thus eliminating the user interaction. Why manufacture the same parts twice when you can adjust your processes to prevent rework?

Meet Factory Systems

Our Vision

Much of Factory Systems’ success is due to two principles: First, we provide solutions, fully integrated, programmed and running to the customer’s specification. This includes, at the customer’s option, on-site evaluation, installation and training. Factory Systems can work from blueprints to supply complete fixtured SPC systems. Second, Factory Systems develops products directly from customer response and comments. Many features contained in our products are based on direct customer requests.

Our Technology

What sets Factory Systems apart from most other SPC providers is the Total Solution Concept. Most companies will send you a catalog, and provide guidance in selecting their products, but they do nothing towards installation, training, nor will they take responsibility for insuring your success. Factory Systems provides all this and more.

Our Story

Factory Systems provides Statistical Process Control (SPC) in the form of data acquisition and analysis hardware, software and networked host systems. Formed in 1978 as Industrial Microsystems Inc. (IMI), engineers worked closely with a group of practicing process engineers to design rugged, extremely flexible industrial computers for data acquisition and SPC analysis including Six Sigma reporting. Gauge interfaces were added for Federal and Mitutoyo digital gauges, Heidenhain Glass Scale, LVDT, analog signals, and RS-232 data streams. The Host system software was created, providing networked administration and data management.

“There was no question Factory Systems had the superior system,” says Kapraun. “All the operators commented that it was much easier to work with and interfaced well with all gauges. We even had to leave the trial units in because the operators didn’t want them taken away.”
