TSS Quality Assurance
The Quality Management at Trelleborg Sealing Solutions prefers durable construction and safe processes for the fulfilment of the customer's specifications. Regular process audits in the manufacturing facilities, which are conducted as if the customer would be conducting them, warrant that we achieve a high standard, reaching beyond the internal efforts of the audited installation.
Tests of our own are indispensable to prove the quality of delivered products, and for that purpose, we focus on the following topics:
Quantitative characteristics (measurements)
Measuring components made of elastomers or plastic materials requires a high degree of experience, since the specimens are not rigidly firm in shape. Trelleborg Sealing Solutions favors contactless measurement using 3D measuring equipment with visual sensors.
Qualitative characteristics (superficial faults)
Zero - Fault manufacturing is not possible due to the specific characteristics of the elastomer. All parts must pass through a screening inspection. Predominantly visual automatic testers are used for critical parts. We prefer Basler-machines because of their high degree of flexibility and safety.
