If many of your finished products appear warped, misshapen, damaged, or broken immediately after you create them, you want to know why immediately. Imperfect products can create a number of problems for you, your business partners, and your customers. The information below can help you learn more about your imperfect products, including how to inspect them.
How Do Imperfect Products Affect Your Company?
Flaws and imperfections may develop in products for a number of reasons, including inaccurate blueprints and designs. For example, the blueprints used to design your products may be imprecise or inaccurate. Inaccurate blueprints may affect the products' dimensions before and after your partners and customers receive and/or use them.
Some of the materials you use to make your products may also lack strength or durability. Materials, such as metal and wood, can crack or break in two if they're not dense enough. Your products may become defective and potentially harmful over time.
If you don't know exactly why you have flaws and imperfections in your products, inspect them immediately.
How Do You Find Imperfections in Your Products?
The best way to find flaws in your finished products is to inspect them. You can use a unique technique called dimensional inspection to do so. A dimensional inspection looks for things in your finished products you might not see with the naked eye, such as tiny flaws on the surfaces of your products and irregular edges along the sides of your products.
Dimensional inspections can also measure the density and strength of your products. The inspections can determine whether or not your products are strong enough to support your products' needs and functions, or the inspections can determine whether or not your materials are sufficient enough to use in your products.
In order to inspect your products, you may need to send them to an environmentally-controlled inspection lab. The lab's environment protects your products from excessive heat, cold air, and other things that may damage them during the inspection.
The lab's environment also allows inspectors to use various equipment to examine your products, such as special microscopes, probes, and measurement tools. The measurement tools may examine the dimensions of your products to see if they're calculated properly. The probes may examine your products' strength and durability.
Once you receive the results of your dimensional inspection, you can use them to replace or upgrade your materials, draw up new blueprints, or change the way you make your products altogether.
