To measure formability and ductility of car body panels, our sheet metal testers are available in a wide range to accommodate various thickness and strengths of steel or aluminum body panels. Also with AutoGrid system, automatic measurement of strain and FLC analysis is ensured.
Sonic Testers & Ultrasonic Thickness Gauges
Our range of Sonic Testers are specially designed for the automotive industry and racing applications. This Ultrasonic thickness gauge range is commonly used for measuring the thickness of cylinder walls, head ports, decks, tubing, body panels, and windshields. It also has the ability to scan the length of a part to find the minimum thickness.
Gloss Meters for toughest Automotive QC requirements
Automotive interior design is getting more and more important in the purchasing decision. A variety of materials, from leather to plastics, are used and need to be harmonized. Additionally, the surface structures vary from large grains to fine stipples with usually very matte appearance. In order to guarantee a uniform look among the various parts very tight tolerances are specified.
Only testing instruments with excellent precision will be able to objectively control the production. The new micro-gloss S family glossmeter offers improved performance for 60° gloss in the critical low gloss range (0-10 GU). The excellent accuracy can be guaranteed due to our patented calibration procedure in production.
Color Control of automotive interior parts
Most people consider color and gloss harmony of the car interior to be a key item when judging the perceived quality of a vehicle. Consequently, the quality requirements for the interior design of a car have increased over the last years. A variety of materials are used and need to be harmonized. To achieve a uniform look among the interior trim parts, very tight tolerances are specified. Only instruments with excellent precision are able to objectively control the production.
Surface Roughness Testers / Profilometers
The Qualitest TR-Roughness Testing range provides the best possible mix of different models ranging from economical portable models for basic roughness testing needs, up to the tabletop advanced version that comes with advanced software and platform for high accuracy and repeatability. All of the TR-Roughness Testers offered by Qualitest come certified and have the best price/quality ratio on the market.
Portable Digital Microscope
For in-situ or non-destructive analysis of automotive parts and components, DG3 is the ideal inspection tool that offers maximum flexibility and captures high resolution images that can provide critical data for further analysis. DG3 is extremely popular in the automotive industry. Qualitest also offers other benchtop configurations of Metallurgical Microscopes.
