Material Construction and Design

VIDEO MICROSCOPE

 

Purpose

To evaluate physical and design properties of Lapp wire and cable to ensure 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.

 

TECHNICAL DETAIL

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 ensure 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 ensure accuracy.

 

INDUSTRY REGULATORY STANDARD

  • UL 1581

 

RoHS/WEEE COMPLIANCE

Purpose

To evaluate the potential hazardous substance content of Lapp products to insure compliance and also retain characteristics with regards to global initiatives and directives. These tests are performed to certify compliance with RoHS / WEEE and REACH directives, other Industry tests and Safety agency standards.

 

TECHNICAL DETAIL

Several samples are exposed to the detection sensors of the analysing equipment for certain time duration. Once the analysis is complete, notifications of results is provided visually. Investigation and recording of several hazardous substances is done simultaneously based on any contents detected. Test results are compared to standard requirements electronically to avoid potential error and insure accuracy.
