Quality Road at the METAV 2014 – because there’s no alternative to quality!

Quality Road at the METAV 2014 – because there’s no alternative to quality!Under the motto of “Quality Assurance in the Production Process”, numerous front-ranking companies will at the Quality Road during the METAV 2014 be presenting their innovations and technical solutions from the field of quality assurance to the knowledgeable expert trade public.

The quality of a product decides whether it will succeed on the market. In order to assure the high quality of an end-product, the manufacturing processes and test procedures utilised for manufacturing and testing over the entire production process have to exhibit a high level of qualitative efficacy that is both dependable and above all consistently uniform.

Visitors to the METAV 2014 at the Quality Road in Hall 16 can see for themselves the technical solutions and innovations with which they can achieve a consistently high level of quality for their products. The special show will be rounded off with a lecture forum that will inform the visitors during the entire duration of the fair about the latest trends and developments in the field of quality assurance, by means of numerous specialised presentations and best-practice examples from the academic community and the industrial sector.

One of the companies taking part in the Quality Road is the Wenzel Group from Wiesthal. This manufacturer of metrological instruments comments on the subject of quality assurance:

"For initial sampling and approval of series-production parts, it is quality assurance that bears the responsibility. For this purpose, complex and often, too, ever-smaller products are continually monitored. The increasingly stringent expectations applying for product quality, and the complete-coverage documentation demanded, render the use of new technologies essential."

"For complete monitoring of components, an enormous variety of different tactile and optical technologies are often used. Sometimes, certain dimensions have to be determined using manual measuring equipment. The trend towards optical and non-contact metrology continues unbroken. Meanwhile, there are optical solutions that measure geometrical elements and extensive point clouds in a single operation. So as to assure a harmonised inspection process even for sophisticated parts, industrial computer tomographs are now being used increasingly as well. Computer tomography workstations offer optimal options for metrological monitoring of complex workpieces. With tactile metrological systems alone, these components cannot always be measured in their entirety, e.g. if some of them are not optimally accessible or by reason of their size cannot be properly fixed in position. Industrial computer tomography is a non-contact and non-destructive technology that, in dependence on the material being inspected, enables even internal structures to be analysed completely."
