One of the most common process variations comes from normal wear over time. There are a number of key interfaces of the polishing machine and fixture, however the common wear areas are the polishing machine mandrel, fixture mounting hole, and the ferrule holes.

The metal-to-metal contact of putting the fixtures in and out of the machine will naturally wear both items. Putting the ceramic ferrules into the fixture will also produce wear over time.

The new EZ Check precision wear gage kit is part of our process control system designed to provide immediate measurements for the polishing machine mandrel, fixture mounting hole, and ferrule holes.

The EZ Check Wear Kit is a vital part of Domaille Engineering’s maintenance plan and will help customers better understand when to repair or replace items before product yields begin to fall.
