Assurance in Quality Control at Retlaw
We employ a team of quality control specialists as a safeguard to test our products at the end of the production cycle. Quality controllers are housed in a separate room to give them total control over finished thermoplastic products, including our sprockets, idler wheels, and rebar chairs.
In order to achieve true accuracy in their inspections, our technicians take advantage of a range available equipment and analysis, including but not limited to:
- 16” Quadracheck III Optical Comparator – able to display angular and linear dimensions, this comparator measures the geometry of a product against pre-determined limits. Comparators draw their benefits from the integrating of measurement with optics.
- Brown and Sharpe Microhite – a gauge used to accurately assess the precise height of an object
- Ohaus EP613 Digital Scale – a precision weighing tool to ensure consistency of plastic quality and thickness
- Meyer Gage Pins – highly accurate gauges for measuring bored hole diameters
- SPC Capability – (Statistical Process Control) A quality control method allowing Retlaw to use statistical analysis to decide how much conforming product one process is capable of creating. Takes machine component and tool, material, and worker degradation in consideration to maximize efficiency and reduce waste
