Using ADTANCE Smart Service solutions, TLT's quality assurance department intended to implement a system to perform remote inspections of suppliers. The system should adapt to the conditions and requirements of the different countries and finally generate a report with pictures, recordings and further documentation.
The implementation of the ADTANCE support solution at TLT-Turbo resulted in significant savings in travel costs as well as a reduction in cumbersome communication via e-mail and telephone.
The success story of TLT-Turbo GmbH
TLT-Turbo has stood for continuous innovation and solution orientation since the development of the first centrifugal fan in 1873. At the end of 2021, for example, the modular fan concept for the mining industry was introduced for the first time, enabling customers to easily plan their ventilation systems while at the same time benefiting from typical advantages such as higher efficiency and lower power consumption. Furthermore, at the beginning of 2022, the position as MVR expert for the pharmaceutical industry as well as in the mining sector was strengthened by several major international orders.
In order to guarantee the high quality standards of TLT-Turbo, constant worldwide inspections of suppliers as well as raw materials and components are necessary. The verifiability and documentation of the respective inspections must be guaranteed and must not generate any additional work for the employees. With ADTANCE support, inspections can be planned and carried out quickly and suppliers can be invited in an uncomplicated manner without the need for an IT expert.
The challenge of inspections before ADTANCE Support
Even before the introduction of ADTANCE support, TLT-Turbo used a system that had the reproducibility of remote inspections. This allowed a report to be generated at the end of an inspection with the images, recordings and other applications. However, the existing system did not allow for easy application in different supplier countries. It often failed due to the specific circumstances, such as in China or Turkey, but also due to the technical bandwidth required to ensure good quality video.
To be able to offer TLT-Turbo customers the best possible quality of products, a constant control of all components and suppliers is necessary and that worldwide, easy, fast and documented.
