In many critical applications (including automotive, aerospace, and life support, among others), 100% dimensional inspection of o-rings is often required. Seal & Design has a host of inspection machines that are dedicated to 100% inspection of o-rings and other seals, to ensure each individual part meets all drawing dimensions and other measurable specifications.
Also called vision systems, these machines use camera stations with either infrared or white light to measure any particular dimension of an o-ring that is deemed to be critical to function. From ID and OD to concentricity and ovality, our equipment measures and sorts parts quickly and efficiently. Seal & Design is home to a variety of inspection equipment, from machines dedicated specifically to o-rings and round parts, to machines that can measure virtually any shape.
To prevent any cross-contamination of the 100% inspected parts, bagging machines are attached directly to the inspection equipment. This allows for precise automatic bagging/sealing of parts, with customer required information including part numbers, quantities, and batch information printed directly onto the bags. From start to finish, the time it takes to inspect and bag an o-ring is often less than 10 seconds.
These inspection machines are just another component of Seal & Design’s World Class production facility, which is certified to ISO/TS 16949:2009 as well is ISO 9001:2008.
