Wear over time is one of the most common causes of process variations. Polishing machines and fixtures have several key interfaces, but the polishing machine mandrel, fixture mounting hole, and ferrule holes wear out most frequently.
When fixtures are put in and taken out of the machine, metal-to-metal contact will naturally wear both items. As ceramic ferrules are put into the fixture, they will also wear out over time.
Our new EZ Check precision wears gage kit provides immediate measurements of polishing machine mandrel, fixture mounting hole, and ferrule hole diameters.
Domaille Engineering’s EZ Check Wear Kit helps customers better understand when to repair or replace items before product yields begin to decline as part of its maintenance plan.
