Control 2015 -
Know-How Transfer in Quality Assurance
"Quality assurance necessitates a system of continuous quality improvement" - this quote from the America quality bible, "Commitment to Quality", makes it more apparent than any other quote concerning the issue of QA that quality is not free of charge! No later than when the insight ripens that quality plays a decisive role as a factor in international competition, manufacturing companies are well advised to view quality assurance a basic, overriding function in all corporate divisions.
The Control international trade fair for quality assurance provides customers and users with an adequate information, communication, procurement and business platform, which will be promoted in 2015 for the 29th time. In order to lastingly live up to the exacting demands of the industry sector and its customers, Control also abides by the quote cited above and will present a sparkling array of innovations and optimisations at Control 2015!
Above all the updated nomenclature can be mentioned in this respect, which will be subdivided into primary segments including measuring technology, materials testing, analysis equipment, optoelectronics and QA systems in the future. There are a total of 16 headings within these five primary segments, under which technologies, processes, products, modules, subsystems and complete QA solutions are listed, covering both hardware and software. Above all this update does justice to the rapidly growing presence of optoelectronic components and systems such as image processing and vision systems, as well as system integration.
And the second innovation impacts precisely this area, namely a special trade fair guide for "Image Processing, Vision Systems and System Integration", which is available in both online and printed versions. Presented for the first time at the last control, expansion into the area of "system integration" permits target-oriented, direct contact with competent experts in accordance with actual needs.
Complementary supplements are offered by tried and true Control collaboration partners such as the IPA with its event forum covering "Multi-Sensor Applications in Measuring and Test Technology", the innovative Mechatronics Network BW with its technology park, the Fraunhofer Vision Alliance with its special show and the TQU who will once again confer the Baden-Württemberg Competence Award. Roughly eight months before the trade fair opens, it's already becoming apparent that the 29th Control will also be a span success: according to Control project manager Gitta Schlaak, more than 90% of all available exhibition floor space has already been booked due to great demand demonstrated by domestic and above all by foreign exhibitors.
