Quality Control & Assurance

Case Study

Bose uses the PRIMS system to assure that the paper it uses in its speaker cones is made to exacting specifications.

Bose manufactures what are considered the highest quality speaker systems. The speaker cones are often made from a special paper pulp with a variety of chemical additives. Prior to installing the PRIMS system, one of their speaker production lines was exhibiting a particularly challenging quality control issue.

Bose uses very sophisticated equipment to test its speaker cones. Laser sensors, ultrasonic sensors, check weighers, vision systems, and x-ray inspection devices are part of their testing process. This inspection is extremely rigorous because they want to catch the smallest imperfections early – before the cone makes it to the finished product. ‘Failing later’ is much more expensive. The cost of manufacturing the finished speaker is high.

Bose ordered the PRIMS system to discover that their quality problem was due to operator error when mixing the paper pulp. After installing the hand scaling station and the mixing tanks, the line immediately started delivering zero rejects. So, Bose had our system installed throughout the entire speaker cone production facility.

“PRIMS gave us great results – zero defects in our speaker cone production in Framingham, MA. Our return on investment was in the very first day.”
