In an ideal world, parts would come off the production line defect free and ready for shipment. But the truth is, that kind of utopia in the part manufacturing world does not exist, and part failures can occur for any number of reasons. Though there may be uncertainty regarding the cause of part failures, identifying which parts are failing shouldn’t be uncertain. Faced with this fork in the road, manufacturers need a testing method that identifies the part failures ... Continue Reading ?
Jesse Garant Metrology Center (USA & Canada) announced that it has expanded its operations to accommodate the growing demand for high volume part inspection for pre-production and production validation. With investments in new equipment and improved infrastructure, including state of the art industrial computed tomography systems for inspecting large parts, their enhanced capabilities solidify their position as leaders within the nondestructive testing and metrology part inspection services industry.
As part of a five year, $15 million roll-out investment in technology, ... Continue Reading ?
As every product has modes of failure, inspection becomes a necessary step to determine the root cause. Inspections can be conducted with parts or assemblies that fail perform as intended or when they no longer meet the tolerances initially set by the manufacturer. This process involves collection of data from different types of evaluations. Some failures are straightforward to address, while others are more complex and require significant investment.
Finding the root cause of failures in parts and components often poses a ... Continue Reading ?
