LINK :: Mr. Feamster says based on Ford user feedback, automa- tion is a favorite feature, much because the systems are so easy to use. e microscopes are CNC and feature a digital camera. "e system can be mastered by anyone who is not super skilled in microscopy," he says. "Users only need to follow instructions and go through a small amount of training." e systems allow review and editing of test results. All edits are logged to facilitate audits of the testing process. Customer support and training are the highest priority for Jomesa North America, according to Mr. Feamster. If there are complaints about something or suggestions to improve, the company implements changes based on this feedback. Clean Parts are Critical When purchasing a new car, most buyers don't think about how the cleanliness of the transmission and engine components can affect the way the car operates. Twenty years ago, after car owners had something go wrong with their cars, they may not have known that the issue was caused by dirt particles that may have already been present in their car's parts when they bought a new car. Companies such as Ford and Jomesa that are working behind the scenes to improve cleanliness specifications and part cleanli- ness inspection are helping car buyers get a lot more mileage out of their investment these days. More time between oil changes and less maintenance in general can be attributed to cleaner parts in trans- missions and engines. Cleaning standards in the manufacturing process have reaped financial rewards. Warranty claims have declined, while warranty periods have increased. In other words, today's cars are manufactured better than ever before. Jomesa North America Inc. | 248-457-0023 | 314.692.8388 f 314.692.5152 11600 ADIE ROAD ST.
