Metallographic Sample Preparation (Major Steps)
View Full Size

Having trouble viewing? Visit our industry posts here.

“Quality control for metals & alloys are critical to ensure structure integrity and reliability for the manufacturing use and consumer application…”

 


 Benefits of Metallographic Sample Preparation:  

  • Analysing the microstructure of the physical structure and components material (with microscopy).
  • Determine if the material has been made / processed correctly
  • Discovering why a material’s quality passed or failed during application & conditions
  • Quality Control on product reliability & integrity

  Major Steps:  

Sectioning and Cutting

Whatever the material is, samples need to be cut accordingly to the area of interest and for handling convenience. Some of cutting methods used are: Abrasive cutting, Diamond wafer cutting, Electric discharge machining (EDM), Fracturing, Thin microtome sectioning, Sawing, Shearing, Water jet cutting, etc.

Note: It is important to reduce chances of microstructure damage to avoid producing false metallographic characterization analysis later.

Mounting

After cutting into a small work pieces, it will be compressed in mounting moulds with thermoplastics – acrylics, ambient castable resins or thermoplastic glues. Which: 

  • Protects the material’s surface and edges.
  • Fills spots that has pores on the material.
  • Handles irregular-shaped samples, conveniently.

Grinding & Polishing

Grinding helps to prepare the cut surface or mount for metallographic examination by:

  • Reduce the damage created by sectioning
  • Creating a flat, reflective, smooth and scratch free surface
  • Handles irregular-shaped samples, conveniently.

After the grinding process, polishing is done to create a clearer view of the surface on the object while removing minor scratches.

Etching

Metallographic etching is a chemical technique used to highlight features of metals at microscopic levels. the specimen is covered or dipped into a protective layer of etching liquid (this varies from electrochemical, chemical, physical or cathodic vacuum).

  • Helps to reveal tiny cracks, pores, or inclusions within the metal samples.
  • Metallurgists can discover why certain metal qualities pass or fail according to application.

The Importance of Calibration Traceability

Aug 14, 2019
The Importance of Calibration Traceability
View Full Size
See Original Post HERE.

The Importance of Calibration Traceability

“A calibration performed on an instrument, can become pointless if it cannot be traced to a known reference / standard.”

Traceability is defined by the measuring result and whether its value can be compared and related to a working standard or reference. This can be done through a referring to an ‘unbroken chain’ of calibrations that is contributed from each measurement uncertainty. (Refer to the image above)

Most importantly, as long as there is a history to trace back to what an item’s value meant, this avoids any risk of confusion during the trace.


Metrological traceability requires an established calibration hierarchy.

Proper calibration ensures that your metrological & material testing equipment are credible and traceable accordingly to its:

  • Compliance to international or national standards
  • Measurement uncertainty
  • Quality assurance on their measuring result
  • Technical competence in the measurement
  • ‘Unbroken chain’ of references from thoroughly documented measurement of an authorized laboratory.
  • Valid calibration certificate that is not expired

How to trace your measurement? Have the following:

  • List of measuring uncertainty contributed from the calibration authority.
  • Equipment (e.g. serial no. etc.) used during the calibration
  • Equipment traceability reference (e.g. calibration scope, calibration source, calibration date and calibration id, certificate number).
  • Evidence of its calibration credibility and source, e.g. accreditation.
  • Refer to accredited calibration bodies with ISO/IEC 17025 or BIPM, OIML, ILAC, and ISO requirement.

NOTE:

As long as the measuring result can be traced to a reference of documents with an ‘unbroken’ chain of calibration… This will guarantee competence in both the technical aspects of the measurements and in the quality assurance to ensure that you get a useful and valid “traceable” calibration certificate with a set of results you can rely on.

What to Consider Before Calibrating an Instrument
View Full Size
See Original Post HERE.

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 drft) and sensitivity drift. Thus affecting the precision, accuracy & consistency of future measurements.

So, the question is: When should calibration be done to reduce and prevent measurement uncertainty? 

Refer to Manufacturer's Recommendation
All legitimate testing and measuring tools have a recommended calibration interval / frequency on how often calibration should be done.

After an Unexpected Accident
If your equipment has taken damage from physical impact or shock, something internally might have been knocked out; which can affect the measuring capability.

Check if the instrument’s safety integrity has been compromised, if yes or unsure, then ask the calibration or technical service team to assist on the repair, maintenance & calibration.

Accordingly to Project Requirement
All measuring jobs can have various types of calibration requirement.

That includes having ISO 17025 certified instruments, using the right test equipment or having to deal with less stricter calibration standards.

Regardless, always check the specifications before the test.

Frequency of Usage 
If critical measurements are needed often, then between monthly to quarterly is recommended.

However, if projects are carried out less between critical and non-critical measurements, then can proceed with biannual and annual calibration is better.

NOTE:
Calibration is not only about fine-tuning your measuring and testing equipment. It is also about ensuring that your equipment stay consistent in a safe and reliable manner.

Be mindful that calibration is a form of quality assurance process that allow you to get precise and accurate results.

When to Calibrate

Jun 3, 2019
When to Calibrate
View Full Size

When is Calibration Due?

Calibration is crucial to adjust and maintain the accuracy and precision of measuring & testing instruments.

The manufactured quality of the components, parts and products produced is determined by the calibration done on them. To ensure consistency and reliability of the measuring equipment. 
When? 

The general recommendation is an interval 12 months period.

How Often?

It depends on the:

  1. Application & Overall Usage of the Equipment / System
  2. Manufacturing or Industrial Requirement of Calibration Frequency
  3. Operating Conditions of the instrument’s:
    • Wear & tear process
    • Frequency & severity of usage
    • Temperature & environmental exposure
  4. Historical records of the measurement’s stability, consistency & accuracy
  5. Specifications & Installation of your products & services

Risks of not Calibrating?
Calibration is an industrial standard to ensure the safety, quality and consistency of ISO 9000 & MS ISO 9001 manufactured products.

A measuring instrument’s reading cannot be assured; that can lead to inaccuracies with the overall product / service quality. Making it more costly to do the rework than the frequent cost of calibrating an equipment.

Choose the Right Heat Treatment Furnace

May 30, 2019

Choose the Right Heat Treatment Furnace

“Picking the most suitable furnace for industrial application require knowledge of the factors & processes needed for the manufacturing & production lines.“

An industrial furnace go up to 1000°C - 1200°C or higher. Allowing manufacturers to use for its heating & cooling capability on various materials (e.g. metals) to change their quality and properties to meet with industrial or market standards. 

   BENEFITS  

Why do manufacturers need such a high temperature?

  1. Alter or fabricate the physical or chemical properties of a material.
  2. Change the grain structure or mechanical properties of a material so that it becomes useful, serviceable and for human safety during and after the production line operations.
  3. Making materials harder, stronger and more resistant to impact or softer and ductile.
  4. Increase resistance to wear, tear, heat, corrosion, etc.
  5. Improve electrical and magnetic properties (for metals)

One furnace cannot produce all of this characteristic or result as mentioned so manufacturers have to use different types of heat treatment methods and furnaces to achieve the desired results.

  FACTORS TO CONSIDER  

  1. Purpose for which type of material needs to be heated
  2. Source of heat and the Nature of heat transfer to the material
  3. Heating by batch or continuously and the method of handling materials
  4. Type of heat recovery
  5. Other types of furnace classifications

  HEAT TREATMENT TYPE TO CONSIDER  

1. Preheating

  • Helps to increase the temperature of the material slowly for the control of the thermal stress.
  • Prevent or reduce chances of the material to crack, contract, or expand (from thermal stress).

2. Annealing 

  • Removes thermal stress by heating up then slowly cooling down the metal.
  • Capable of making the material softer, refine, or change its ductility or structure.

3. Hardening 

  • Heats up the material with a high temperature and then follow up with quick cooling process (by quenching in water, oil, or molten salt) to increase material’s resistance to penetration (hardness).
  • After this heat treatment, tempering or annealing can be used to slightly modify the material’s quality and characteristics.

4. Tempering 

  • Involves slow and moderate heating to increase the hardness and toughness of the materials e.g. metals that have undergone previous heat treatment.
  • Improve toughness, strength, plasticity, and impact strength of the materials (opposite of annealing) 

The above are only a quarter of heat treatment application available in the industrial market and methods.

Pendulum Impact Testing - June 2019
View Full Size

“A material's toughness determines if it is suitable to be reused for production or to improve its manufacturing quality for their end-product.”

Pendulum Impact testing is a type of mechanical testing used to study the toughness of a material to check the product's ability to absorb impact and to analyse the deformation process before fracturing (by using a falling pendulum weight or striker to determine a product's ductile to brittleness *).

*Common brittle testing samples are glass, wood, plastic, paper and dried clay (low toughness and can be deformed easily) while duxtile items are aluminium, copper, tin, mild steel, platinum and lead (high toughness and will not fracture easily).


Benefits of Pendulum Impact Testing

  • Determine the material's ability to absorb energy during a collision by testing raw materials and molded components for strength and durability.
  • Understand the impact strength, anti-fracture, impact resistance, degradation, damage of the materials and a product's lifetime responses to wear & tear.
  • Prevents the future production quality failure (provide analysis for future designs)
  • Investigate batch quality during the raw material’s creation.

  Common pendulum impact test methods :  

Both testing methods are used to check the impact resistance with the pendulum method but with some differences.

Charpy impact testing

  • Test materials are placed horizontally 
  • Hammer strikes at the middle point of the notch (surface) but in the opposite direction.
  • Can test on metals, plastics and polymers.

Izod impact testing

  • Test materials are placed vertically.
  • Hammer strikes at the upper tip of the specimen.
  • Can test on metals and plastics 

Applications of Pendulum Impact Testing

Plastic  |  Metal  |  Education Sector  |  Research & Development

And Many More!

Colour Consistency- May 2019

How to Measure Colour for your Business

Having trouble with visual colour checking? Need accurate colour reading? 

Before colour is painted, printed and produced, manufacturers have to ensure that colour is monitored and accessed during the design stage, the formulation & production process and finally during the quality control process. Which determines the overall outlook on the products while attracting customers…

After the product assembly, final quality checks are done to identify and if needed, fix the colour issue. This is less expensive than doing rework on your goods after a rejection call.

There are many ways to identify & categorise colours, which includes:

Visually / Manually

  • By comparing the product’s colour with a known standard (e.g. Pantone ®, Munsell, etc..)
  • Open to errors and disagreement with your customers and suppliers. Because it requires properly trained people to visually evaluate color while doing it under different lighting conditions can affect assessments.

Using a colour meter or colourimeter

  • A portable device that is able to read and provide tri-stimulus (RGB) values (uses an internal light source, to shine light down onto the surface of the sample and as it reflects back up to the device, it passes through three filters: red, green and blue), similarly to how our eyes see colours.
  • Cannot detect metamerism (evaluating when two colors appear to match under one lighting condition but not when the light changes) rendering it unsuitable for all production applications e.g. formulation.

Using a spectrophotometer

  • Works similarly to a colourimeter but instead of using only 3 filters (RGB values) there is 31 filters to measure the full colour spectrum value. These filters can measure light in each of 31 different wavelengths to determine the exact colour of a sample.
  • Come in many shapes and sizes - small handheld devices, large benchtop workhorses and in-line devices used during manufacturing production.
  • Ideal for identifying metamerism (evaluate how colour will look under different light sources
  • Can measure almost anything from liquids, plastics, paper, metal, fabrics, etc.
