Cardinal Partners with FeneTech to Improve Quality Control

Cardinal Shower Enclosures of Louisville, Ky., has recently implemented the FeneVision LineScanner at its tempering facility. The goal of the new system is to improve its manufacturing processes by tracking errors and imperfections comprehensively.

According to Loren Powell, Cardinal’s data administrator handling the implementation, the new machinery will enable Cardinal to quantify imperfections, errors and trends and provide historical data that is key to detecting and correcting potential problems internally. Because of the LineScanner’s speed, its addition to the production process does not affect overall production or lead times, according to the company.

FeneTech Inc., based in Aurora, Ohio, is helping to guide Cardinal through the software addition.

“We are looking forward to strengthening our relationship with Cardinal and working alongside them to produce the highest-quality product,” says Nate Huffman, FeneTech quality systems business development manager.
