Quality Control, Definition and Interests

Quality control is a procedure implemented by companies to ensure the conformity of a product. Conformity is established on the basis of criteria developed by the company or by mutual agreement between a supplier and a customer. Quality control includes for example industrial [...]

What is Traceability ? Traceability using Impressions

Traceability is a concept that has been in place for over 3800 years, in antiquity. Men used buckets or red irons in order to certify exchanges. Today, traceability is omnipresent in the industry where it makes it possible to provide all the necessary [...]

The Roughometer – Measuring Surface Condition

During machining, regardless of the precision of the machine used, it is to be expected that the surfaces will have irregularities. These irregularities are micro-geometric asperities due to imperfect machine tools (yes! Perfection does not exist!). The measure of these imperfections is essential. [...]

Non-Destructive Thread Inspection by Impression Molding

Threads are helical threads more commonly known as thread pitch. When a thread is inside a cylinder (female thread), it is a female thread. Conversely, a thread is an external thread (male thread). Thread, bore and tap inspection is one of the common [...]

Non-Destructive Testing or NDT

Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) is a discipline grouping together processes and techniques to identify characteristic differences, welding defects, and discontinuities, all while avoiding any harm to the original part. The use of non-destructive testing measurement techniques is essential for the industry. Indeed, NDT techniques [...]

Profile projector | Use them with Plastiform technology

A profile projector is an optical measuring instrument used in metrology and quality control. This device allows the shadow of the part to be measured to be projected on a screen which is then used by the operator to perform the measurements.x It's [...]

Roughness Ra | Arithmetic Average of Roughness Profile

The roughness Ra is, in mechanics, an average characterizing the surface condition of a part or material. In industry, roughness control is part of the dimension validation process and ensures part conformity during machining. There are other indicators that characterize the roughness of [...]

Industrial Metrology | Definition and Use Case

Metrology is a scientific discipline that includes all methods for obtaining measurements. Industrial metrology is a branch of the discipline applied to the production sector. In the industry, metrology is most often used to check dimensional conformity, it is a way of ensuring [...]

 Before each [...]

How to hand the Re-form ?

Re-FORM is a thermoplastic resin that allows parts to be held or stiffened, or to protect them against clamping. By heating it to over 60°C, it becomes transparent, molded and malleable. You can therefore model it by hand to make it a shape [...]

What is the purpose of the plastin ?

Plastin is an industrial modelling clay used in the industry for its technical specificities. It can be used to position a part, create dams, plug holes, etc. It never dries and does not adhere to the products and is very elastic, which makes [...]
