Krugersdorp based manufacturers of rigid PVC and PET rolls/films/sheets, TRIOPLASTICS, now has their own quality control laboratory – ensuring that they live up to their promise to delivery quality products.
Raw ingredients are fed into various machinery to finally produce the rigid material. These are difficult but interesting processesto control;the product’s physical properties depends heavily on getting the correct distribution, which is why TRIOPLASTICS as the manufacturer is intensely interested in ways to accurately monitor it. Ultimately giving their clients the best quality plastic measurable by international standards.
Because TRIOPLASTICS is committed to deliver quality, a newly equipped quality-control laboratory was developed and is headed by newly appointed quality specialist, Yusuf Karim.
The lab includes a Tensometer apparatus, a device used to evaluate the Young's modulus (how much it stretches under stress) of a material and other tensile properties, such as tensile strength. This universal testing machine can be loaded with a sample between 2 grips then adjusted to apply force to the specimen. The machine works either by driving a screw or by hydraulic ram. The machine can conduct compression test, bend test, peel test, shear test, tear test, tensile strength and elongation test on all of TRIOPLASTICS’ products. In addition another device called a Gloss digital meter will be used to determine the amount of glossiness on a product.
The aim of the quality department is to receive ISO 9001:2008 QMS certification by end of 2014 and to get the ISO 22000 Food Safety management systems certification by end July 2015. TRIOPLASTICS currently handles quality complaints by means of applying corrective and preventative actions as well as applying the continual improvement concept. Yusuf Karim urges customers to participate in the quality assurance process by completing a Trio Customer Questionnaire form email@example.com on their website www.trioplastics.comto rate the services, product quality, deliveries and price.
TRIOPLASTICS aim to continuously improve their quality of products, price and service.
