View Full Size

Analyse Impact Resistance with Dart Impact Test Method

 

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 breaking point of their products.

  Evaluation Process  

A dart impact test utilises the falling force of the dart to simulate varied impacts by puncturing through the testing sample; this is factored by the size, shape, weight and the drop height of the dart.

Enlightening manufacturers
to acknowledge which test sample has the quality and durability needed for their production line.

  Benefits  

  • Determine the impact and force resistance of the testing material
  • Product development analysis on preventing potential product failure (wear & tear)
  • Quality Comparison & Evaluation of each batch of material from old & new suppliers

ABOVE: Plastic Film Manufacturer Customer (from Port Klang, Selangor) was very happy and satisfied with our falling dart impact machine and our support.

View Full Size

Evaluate Coat Corrosion with Salt Spray Test

“Can Your Coating Withstand Corrosion Attack From Short-Term & Lon-Term Deterioration Or Environmental Exposure?” 

 

What is Salt Spray Test?

Salt spray testing is commonly used to determine the corrosion resistance of the substrate (coated material) and its surface coatings. Commonly used in marine, automotive, aircraft, metals and other industries that uses finishing & coating on metal substrates.

Benefits of Using Salt Spray Testing 

Evaluation data from the test method can help manufacturers to :

  1. Improve the coating formula during production (i.e. durability & toughness towards corrosion attack or environmental challenges)
  2. Eliminate future losses of batch production, cost and rejected goods.
  3. Compare corrosive resistance of various metals or finishes

And many more.

How it is done?

ASTM B117 is a commonly used requirement for salt spray testing to test the corrosion resistance of metals and coated metals exposed within a standardized corrosive environment.

 

(1)The coated samples within the salt spray chamber, will be exposed to a salty environmental condition to simulate the corrosive effect on the samples.
(2)After the testing process, corrosion and other defective appearance will be examined on the testing material.

Suitable Coating for Salt Spray Testing 


Coatings that can be evaluated with this test method are:

  1. Phosphated (pre-treated) surfaces (with subsequent paint/primer/lacquer/rust preventive)
  2. Zinc and zinc-alloy plating
  3. Electroplated chromiumnickelcoppertin
  4. Paint Coatings
  5. Organic coatings such as polymeric material, paint, varnish, and rust preventives

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.

   SUITABLE INDUSTRIES FOR HEAT TREATMENT

Pendulum Impact Testing - June 2019

May 27, 2019
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

Colour Consistency- May 2019

May 24, 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.

Melt Flow Testing ĘC An Introduction

May 2, 2019

Melt Flow Testing – An Introduction

Melt flow testing measures the ease of flow on the melted thermoplastic* to predict how their resins / pellets will behave in their intended applications. This allows product designers, researchers, manufacturers and even quality control managers to discover the overall quality and production rate capability of that polymer.

*A type of polymer that be easily remolded and recycled because its polymer chain does not degrade when it is being melted; even as its cools after the melting process.

  BENEFITS  

It is important for quality checking the next batch of plastic resins to :

  • Evaluate & Analyse new material from suppliers
  • Estimate the flow rate for simple extrusion process
  • Predict how a polymer behaves under various melt flow rate processes
  • Verify the in-house material (Melt Flow Index identification)
  • Quality check, compare & differentiate for each raw material batch
  • Determine if the new batch of plastic raw materials (plastic resin) provided by their supplier is up to customer’s requirements, industry standards, and whether it is suitable for the extrusion machine used during the production process

  INDUSTRY APPLICATION  

  • Universities & Education Facilities
  • Research & Development Sector
  • Plastic Product & Raw Material Manufacturers

Avoid Plastic Deformation ĘC Dry your Resins!

Apr 29, 2019
Avoid Plastic Deformation – Dry your Resins!



“Even moisture levels of 0.07% can cause cosmetic problems on a part surface if the material is exposed to the temperatures of melt processing…” - Michael Sepe (independent materials and processing consultant)

Plastic Deformation (e.g. mould, holes, bumps, etc.) appears when plastic resins go through the production line without drying properly, thus affecting its overall quality.

(Above) Images of deformed plastic products i.e. spoon, bottle and panels.

How to get the unwanted moisture out? 

“In most plastics processing plants, resin dryers are a standard piece of equipment. Drying is a necessary preparative step to prevent this defect (material being moulded due too much moisture).” - Michael Sepe 

In order to avoid the moisture turning into air bubbles when going through the hot-melt extrusion machine, the resins has to pass through a drying machine beforehand to be preheated to get the moisture out.

​​

(Above) How a drying machine create pre-heating condition to release the moisture out plastic resins to create steam then rejecting the collected moisture away from the raw material.

  

Benefits of using drying machine: 

  • Stabilises the production parameters 
  • Reduce processing energy costs
  • Ensure maximum polymer performance
  • Preventing Cosmetic Problems aka splay or silver streaking.
  • Preventing Hydrolysis (chemical reaction that breaks the covalent binds in the polymer chain, reducing molecular weight of the polymer and significantly reducing mechanical properties.)
  • Preventing Part Failure (after drying, if the appropriate moisture for processing is not reached, premature part failure and structural defects can occur.)

WHY USE TENSILE TEST?

Mar 29, 2019

THE PURPOSE OF TENSILE TESTING

Tensile testing is one of the simplest and most widely used mechanical tests to determine how the test samples will react when it is pulled apart aka to discover its breaking point when an external force / stress is applied onto it.

This allows product designers and quality managers to analyse its material properties and predict how their materials and products will behave in their intended applications.

Examples of raw material samples from rubber, metal, foam, textile and plastic for tensile testing (image below).

BENEFITS

Tensile test helps by ensuring manufacturers to :

  • Achieve lean manufacturing goals (to improve the quality of products, eliminate unnecessary waste, reduce production times and reduce total costs)
  • Ensure the integrity and safety of materials, components and product
  • Aid in the design process
  • Ensure compliance with international and industry standards
  • Ensure product consistency in its highest quality

INDUSTRY APPLICATION 

  • Aerospace & Automotive
  • Food, Beverage, Packaging, Paper and Card Board
  • Construction & Steel 
  • Electrical and Electronics

Calibration: Accuracy & Consistency

Mar 28, 2019

CALIBRATION: ACCURACY & CONSISTENCY  

'It is better to record accurate or precise measurements?'

The Difference:

If you weigh yourself on a scale three times and each time the number is different, yet it is getting closer to your true (actual) weight, the scale is accurate.

However, when it comes to scales that provide precision, it can be precise but not 100% accurate. This would cause the measurements to be very close to each other and yet 'off' from the true value.

Some scales and balances do allow you to tare (by subtracting overall weight with the weight of the sample) or make simple adjustments (with reference of a standard weight) so that to make measurements both accurate and precise

Many other measuring instruments will require more sophisticated equipment for calibration. e.g. Digital Thermometers often read precisly within a certain range but can also give increasingly inaccurate values outside of that range.

Hence, a proper calibration procedure that follow ISO 17025 standard is recommended.

When Calibrating:

  • Record how far off its measurements are from known standard or true values.
  • Keep a record of the calibration to ensure proper readings reference.

There are many specific equipment that requires periodic calibration to ensure accurate and precise readings.

Ways to Identify Metals

Mar 20, 2019

View original post here.

Ways to Identify Metals:

Concerned about the elemental quality of your metal?

Whether it is Raw Materials, Industrial Products or Waste & Recycling. Identification of metals are important to ensure a smooth production line; some of the traditional & modern methods used, below.

  1. Traditional Testing Method - Cost-efficient but relies heavily on personnel experience plus these methods could damage the samples.
    1. Surface Appearance Test - Analyses the shape, form, colour and the surface’s smoothness / roughness. However, test method does not guarantee nor provide sufficient information needed to classify the metal.


Visual Aspects of Metals

  1. Rockwell Test - Measure the hardness of the metal (by the depth of an indentation made by a cone-shaped point in a Rockwell hardness-testing machine). Can only measure one part of the metal.Rockwell Hardness – Test Method

 

  1. Modern Testing Method – Can now prevent sample damage during analysis. Positive material identification (PMI) can provide accurate test results within seconds of analysis; thanks to improved processing speed on modern technology.
    1. X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) – uses high-energy X-rays, to force excitement in the sample to emit certain characteristic rays which are readable by the XRF spectrometer to identify its element.

​​

  1. Optical Emission Spectrometry (OES) – uses light intensity to emit a particular wavelength from a sample to determine its element. Each metal type has their own unique emission of rays and light.

Traditional methods can takes years of training to master the right skills to apply its methodology. By using spectrometers, metal workers can be trained and begin their projects within minutes.
