Control the quality of the manufactured parts
Before the start of manufacturing, the metallic materials (metal, stainless steel, etc.) used are checked to ensure that they comply with the required standards and specifications. This may include resistance testing, chemical analysis or other appropriate evaluation methods.
Throughout the manufacturing process, checks are carried out to ensure that the various stages are carried out correctly. This may involve dimensional checks, weld tests, precision measurements, etc.
Checking dimensions and tolerance
Custom metal parts must match the dimensions and tolerances specified by the customer. Precise measuring tools are used to check if the dimensions are correct and if the tolerances are respected.
Depending on the application of the part, performance tests can be performed to assess its strength, durability, functionality, etc. These tests may include mechanical strength tests, fatigue tests, pressure tests, etc.
Documentation and traceability
Rigorous monitoring of quality control processes is carried out by the machine shop, all stages and results are documented. This guarantees the traceability of the parts and provides precise information in case of later need.
