Title: IMTS Conference: Realizing Carbon Balanced Production Through Quality Control


Starting a new business is never an easy task, especially when PEMBREE founder, Phil Law, felt it was his ethical obligation to ensure the products he produces can be carbon balanced. PEMBREE uses Fusion 360 to realize the manufacturing process, from design concepts to CAM programming and machine simulation. PEMBREE identified quality control as key to carbon-balanced manufacturing. A scrap component has a compounding effect when you are not only considering the financial cost but also recovering the environmental costs. In this talk, we will cover how PEMBREE has used integrated metrology within Fusion 360 to keep tight process control. From programming, spindle-mounted NC probes directly from the CAM system, to interactive inspection routines with handheld equipment. Ensuring that if scrap parts are found, they are found early in the process, preventing additional value being wasted on non-conforming parts.
