You may have a great working knowledge of how custom CNC machining works:
Its smart use of technology and cutting-edge equipment and robotics.
Its engineers who help with design for manufacturing and design/fixture building.
Its programmed G-code and M-code, allowing for correct, repeatable part manufacturing.
Its incredible precision to meet strict spec tolerances.
But, do you know how to test a complex CNC part? After all, you need to know that all that hard work and advanced processes are doing their job and exceeding customer expectations. This article explores one important aspect of quality assurance: pressure testing.
There are 3 main ways to pressure test complex CNC parts:
- Air Decay
- Mass Flow
- Air Under Water
