Material testing with exceptional precision

Do your parts and components need to satisfy the highest quality standards for your customers? With state-of-the-art inspection technology and highly qualified inspection personnel, we consistently and unequivocally ensure that these standards are met.

Fully automated inspections

Eddy-current testing

Dimensional inspection

Manual visual inspection

The parts we inspect hold together products like cars and jet engines.

Technomix AG is a specialist in non-destructive visual and dimensional inspections and material testing, as well as destructive hardness tests using the Vickers method.

Manufacturing companies of all kinds rely on our expertise for definitive, safe evaluations of the quality and condition of their products. We have the equipment necessary to test even the most complex microparts.

Comply with agreed contract terms, prevent returns and economic risks and secure your reputation both on the market and among your clients.

Technomix can identify even the smallest damage and inconsistencies.

What can we focus on for you?

Visual inspection

Dimensional inspection

Eddy-current testing

Hardness testing

Technomix supports you with precise visual inspections. We do this manually via magnifying glass, technoscope, endoscope or videoscope. Or in many cases we employ cutting-edge camera technology that is both fully automated and cost-efficient.

We inspect the surface of your components and parts for all types of damage, flaws and defects that may compromise their quality or functionality.

For jobs that demand precision down to millimetres or even micrometres, Technomix performs length measurements, run-out inspections, angle tests, gauging or other tests to ensure that the dimensions and shape of your product match all specifications.

We perform not only visual inspections, but also dimensional inspections either manually or, in many cases, using fully automatic camera technology.

For electrically conductive materials, we use eddy-current testing and electromagnetic induction to identify internal flaws or processing errors.

Cracks, flaws and other abnormalities cause a change in the magnetic field. This allows us to rapidly assess the properties and internal condition of the parts we inspect. We also use this method to determine the material thickness, layer thickness and the uniformity of elements such as welded joints.

Technomix is also expert in quantitative hardness testing using the Vickers method. This involves applying a load to the test specimen at specific points to assess whether the hardness of the material matches the specifications.

The method also allows material defects in the product to be analysed – for example after unexpected complaints.

Inspection procedures

You have a choice of three inspection procedures – with easy-to-interpret digital inspection reports.

Reject goods test

A reject goods test functions as a last line of defence before you dispatch your products to your end customer. You provide us with a catalogue of possible errors or otherwise defined error criteria, and we inspect every individual part in your consignment. If and when a test piece displays even one of the predefined errors, it is immediately rejected. This ensures that your end customer only receives verifiably flawless parts and components.

Pareto test

A Pareto test differs from a reject goods test in that it includes all defined tests, even if a product has already displayed one of the defined errors. After testing, the digital test report details all of the identified errors and findings. This process is an ideal choice in various scenarios, e.g. for an upcoming safe launch phase, because it identifies and rectifies errors in advance. It is also suitable for damage analysis following complaints.

ABC test

The procedure for the ABC test is very similar to the Pareto test, except that identified errors are also weighted according to prevalence (A / B / C / etc.) It is suitable for the quick identification of possible error patterns so that these can be rectified in a targeted way.

FAQ

Your questions, our answers

We’ll be happy to give you a non-binding quotation. Simply send us your sample parts, a technical drawing or an error catalogue. After we inspect the individual part, we can calculate the costs involved and ensure that working together with you is a viable option. The quotation then depends on a number of factors such as the quantity of test specimens, the number and complexity of inspections required, the packaging and the decision on whether to inspect your products using fully automated camera systems or manual inspection. Our experts look forward to discussing our material tests in more detail with you.

First, we discuss your product and specific errors or criteria. Ideally, you then send us rejected parts and good parts or technical drawings and images so that we can make a more detailed assessment. If necessary, we also perform a trial inspection to refine our inspection parameters. At this stage we clarify the general conditions with you and draw up a tailor-made quotation to meet your requirements. After final approval, we immediately start to compile inspection guidelines and error catalogues (if not yet available) and to brief our inspection personnel about the product. Finally, we start the series inspection of your product to ensure all your quality standards have been met.

We inspect a myriad of different components in a huge variety of sizes, types and shapes. They range in size from the tip of a ballpoint pen to a large turbine blade. We can accommodate pretty much any size of component and we are geared towards the specific needs of our customers. If you think your components may be too big or too small for our inspection process, just ask us! Together we can figure out the best solution for your needs.

Yes, that’s possible in principle, if for some reason parts and components can’t leave your factory. In this case, our experts help you find the best solution.
