You are wondering whether this also applies to your devices?
Measurement methods for quality assurance in the foundry industry
In order for the quality to be right, several test procedures are necessary. Companies in the industry primarily use the following measurement procedures
- tensile test
- hardness test
as common measurement methods to ensure a certain quality standard. The types of testing are more important than production. Goods receipt and final inspection are further important areas of the foundry that require care and precision. Quality assurance with complex test procedures also includes the appropriate equipment.
Common measurement instruments of well-known equipment manufacturers in the foundry industry are, for example:
- Bruker Q4 Tasman
- Bruker Magellan
- Hitachi Foundry Master
- Thermo Fischer ARL Equipment
- Zwick devices via testexpert
- Spectro Spectromaxx
- Spectro Spectrolab
With [FP]-LIMS, Fink & Partner has access to several modules so that you can conveniently manage the analyses without having to search. The modules used, which include analysis management, web access, input dialog, and test order, provide individual interfaces. This allows data to be entered manually and entered into the [FP]-LIMS software solution. Quality assurance can thus be transferred to a higher level, which executes functions automatically or manually – as required.
Quality assurance through know-how
Fink & Partner is also a competent partner for quality assurance in the industry. The many years of experience of our employees have made the company an important partner with know-how in the foundry industry. This is also confirmed by previous customer references.
