Realization of the QA-Measures
Mera Bellows monitors its manufacturing processes completely. Starting with a thorough inspection of the incoming metal strips to the monitoring of the intermediate products and all the way to the 100% final control. With this comprehensive and transparent quality observation and analysis, almost no failure is overlooked by the well-trained personnel of our Quality Control department. It assures that irregularities are not only noticed before shipping, but immediately during the production if a problem would occur. FMEA, MSA, PPAP, SPC, 5S and other Core tools of ISO TS-16949 have been implemented during the last years in order to satisfy our customers’ quality standards. It’s always a good idea to review the finer design details of your application with us as experienced bellows supplier early in your design process so that we exactly understand your needs.
To verify the durability of metal bellows, Mera Bellows is able to perform life-cycle tests. To do this the bellows are compressed and then relaxed in our testing machine until they finally fail. On the one hand, we are able to guarantee durability with this procedure, and on the other hand, we can hastily identify and fix all potential nonconformities.
Spring rate testing
In computerized test device or manual testing.
Automatized pneumatic measurement or water bath leak testing.
Other test procedures
The quality of material that is used by the producer is a crucial factor to guarantee that the metal bellows achieve your expected lifecycle and perform sustainably. With the help of other test devices Mera Bellows can observe grain size, tensile strength and material hardness.
