Measuring and Testing

Tested and Validated Suitability Turns Our Components into Certified Quality Products Manufactured to your specifications, in compliance with applicable standards and assured quality. Demands that are mandatory in almost any industry, today. As the range of requirements in measuring and testing the suitability and safety of different products increases, documented quality has become more important than ever.

At toolcraft, the measuring and testing of manufactured products is an integral part of our total solutions. A highly qualified team with many years of experience in this field as well as advanced metrology and testing technology provide assured and documented quality - for you and your customers.

We keep new developments on the market under close observation, and promptly adopt any useful features emerging. Therefore we expanded our performance range by another dimension - with a system for non-destructive surface testing.

On an area of 75 m², we can now offer the opportunity to check components using a non-destructive method for cracks, overlaps, folds, pores and binding errors in the surface. The area is in accordance with Nadcap requirements. Even microscopically small cracks are revealed in the evaluation cabin under UVA light; these are cracks which can have a decisive effect in aerospace applications. However, the quality and surface finish of components is pivotal, especially in applications where ensuring safety and gaining certifications is important.

This is why in addition to analysing the powder used, toolcraft evaluates the properties of additively manufactured test pieces, as these are representative of the subsequently produced components. We are now testing the dynamic strength of various metals using fatigue testing. The resulting Wöhler curves indicate the relationship between the number of cycles to failure and the applied stress.
