To evaluate physical and design properties of Lapp wire and cable to insure that these products retain critical dimensional tolerance values of material thickness and diameter. These tests are performed to verify compliance with Lapp Cable Design Attributes, Industry tests and Safety agency standards.
Multiple tubular samples of insulation or jacket are stripped from the cable. There can be no longitudinal cuts with any sample lengths. Thin sliced specimens of cross sections are individually placed for measurement under the appropriate optical lens. Adjustments are made to insure accuracy of all thickness, diameter and roundness measurements. Upon the completion of measurement multiple precise values are provided to be evaluated. Test results are compared to standard requirements electronically to avoid potential error and insure accuracy.
