Why Choose 1factory?

1factory is THE BEST Quality Control solution on the market today

1. Ease-of-Use:

1factory is incredibly easy-to-use, and is RATED #1 for ease-of-use by factory-floor and engineering users alike.

2. Lightning-Fast Performance:

Customers describe 1factory as "lightning fast" (please see video testimonial here from minute 03:01 to 03:12) with drawings processed in seconds and data saved in a fraction of a second. In comparison, our competitor's products are very very slow: they take a long time to read and balloon drawings, and more importantly record measurement data very slowly.

1factory saves a measurement within a fraction of a second. Our competitors take 8 to 15 seconds to save a single measurement, frustrating the factory floor users. 1factory also processes CMM files within seconds and delivers instant feedback from the CMM to the machinist enabling real-time process control. Our competitors take 7 to 10 minutes per CMM file; by the time the data is loaded, more bad parts have been produced.

3. Powerful All-in-One Functionality:

No other system on the market offers the breadth and depth of functionality that 1factory offers.

With 1factory, our customers replace 5 separate systems for Ballooning & FAI, In-Process Data Collection & SPC, Real-Time Data Collection and Monitoring, NCR & CAPA management, Statistics (Process Capability, Gage R&R etc.), and Gage Management.

4. Scalability:

1factory can easily handle Drawings, Plans, and Inspections with over a thousand parameters and lot sizes of thousands of parts, i.e. it can handle inspections requiring more than 1 million measurements per lot (1000 features x 1000 parts). 1factory effortlessly collects data from hundreds of workcenters and CMMs from across the factory floor.

1factory handles thousands of concurrent users with no loss of performance.
