Flow rate tests and ball tests to check that the machined article has the right flow rate.
The flow tests check that the machined article has the right flow rate, that’s the right flow of air, and/or that the air flow does not meet restrictions or obstacles.
The devices of GS Finishing Machines carrie out two kinds of flow tests.
FLOW RATE TEST
The flow rate of the article is measured (usually air pipes or automotive connectors), by measuring the air that flows in a certain section of the article during a specific amount of time.
A ball is ejected or left falling inside a pipe and then retrieved on the other end of the article, to check that there are no obstructions.
