Inspection and Testing Services

RPL utilises a quality management system (QMS) to direct and control the organisation in its ability to consistently provide products and services that satisfy our customer requirements.

The QMS is based on the International recognized Aerospace standard AS9100 Rev. C.

Through our investment in automated equipment, we offer the following quality inspection services:

  • CMM Machine: 3D co-ordinate measurement using PC D-MIS Software

  • Keyance: instantaneous optical dimensional measurement of complex shapes

  • Air gauges: non-contact measurement for holes and bores with high accuracy and repeatability

  • Hommel Laser Optic Line: rapid non-contact measurement and inspection of turned parts

  • Shadow Graph: rapid non-contact conformance checking of batches of small parts

  • Routine manual inspection with gauges and traditional measuring equipment

In addition we operate an in-house metallurgical laboratory for the metallographic examination of rolled threads conformant with aerospace, military, and commercial specifications requiring that rolled threads be inspected for external and internal defects in the root, flanks, and crests. Possible defects that are tested for include over-laps, cracks, seams, craters, notches, folds, roughness, and oxide scale.

Specialized metallographic cutting, mounting, grinding and inspection equipment and is used to identify internal defects and to verify that the proper material grain flow has been achieved.
