Testing RoHS Compliance with XRF Analysis

“RoHS directive encourages manufacturers to reduce the use of hazardous & toxic materials to ensure user safety and product reliability while preventing future environment pollution.”   Benefits of RoHS Directive & Certification   Complying with the RoHS directive can encourages manufacturers to: Contribute to a cleaner environment with stricter quality process control, overall reduced number of […]

Measure Wall Thickness without Damage

“Non-destructive measuring instruments like the wall thickness gauge and the ultrasonic thickness gauge, has helped many manufacturers to perform thickness measurement without damaging their products.”   Importance of Thickness Measurement   Manufacturers can ensure their users’ safety, convenience and product reliability by checking on the thickness of their product. To avoid structure failure & to identify […]

What to Consider Before Calibrating an Instrument

Before Calibrating an Instrument Why is calibration and proper maintenance a critical process for instruments to ensure the accuracy of the measurement, reading & testing results? After long usage, environment exposure or if the testing and measuring instruments are not properly calibrated… They will eventually produce measurement errors, uncertainty, bias (zero drift) and sensitivity drift. Thus […]

Test Toughness with Dart Impact Test

View original post here. Free-Falling Dart Impact Test is a material degradation simulation process that can evaluate the impact strength and toughness of the test sample (to do quality comparison on their end-products and raw materials). This allows manufacturers from the R&D and QC sector of laboratories, packaging, inspection, plastic film manufacturing and other related sectors, to study the impact resistance and […]
