Quality tests in production

Product quality assurance in cable production

Our cables are manufactured to the highest standards of quality and are subject to constant and rigorous testing throughout the manufacturing process as well as at the final stage. Process-related data is constantly monitored “inline” throughout the production process.

It is also our standard practice to conduct spot checks testing cable properties either according to specific standards or on the basis of customer requirements.

Examples of the properties tested include:

  • Wall thickness
  • Diameter
  • Eccentricity of the conductor
  • Tight sit and stripping properties
  • Abrasion
  • Resistance to extreme cold or heat
  • Shearing and tensile stress

Product quality assurance in cable assembly

All of the cable systems leaving our factory will have been subjected to extensive testing. We can also use customised testing and measuring methods.

Final inspection

Visual check for any obvious deficiencies, electrical test for continuity (network test), insulation, electric strength; high-frequency parameters such as insertion and return loss, mode conversion and skew using test fixtures specially optimised for each particular product

Micrograph laboratory

Micro sectioning test with subsequent documentation; archiving of crimping results at the request of the customer. Software-based micrograph generation and analysis function with information on the compression level, crimp height, surface area/cross section calculation.

Tensile strength test

Similar to the micrograph test, this is also a destructive test where the withdrawal force at which the cable disengages from the cable connection is determined and documented before the actual work starts.

Measuring stations for plastic and fiber optic cables

Test for compliance with attenuation values, front-surface testing, transit (through) line measurement
