Metrology and Failure Analysis

Failure analysis (Metrology) is an engineering approach to determining how and why a component or equipment has failed. The goal of a failure analysis is to understand the root cause of the failure to prevent similar failures in the future. Common causes of failure include misuse or abuse, manufacturing defects, assembly errors, improper maintenance, design errors, improper material, fastener failure, improper heat treatments, inadequate quality assurance, inadequate environmental protection/control, unforeseen operating conditions and casting discontinuities.” (Transparency Market Research)

The KTS CounterMatch functions as metrology. It tests RF Match performances in real-time production modes, which improves operating efficiency and saves production time.
