Purpose

Residual stress can enhance a product, making it stronger, or contribute to the product's failure. Surveillance and monitoring of residual stress is an important element of Process and Quality Control in all industries.

The PSV-100 is a rugged, portable strain viewer for polariscopic examination of transparent or transluscent products, revealing strains and stresses due to manufacturing processes.

Application

The PSV-100 is used for glass and plastic inspection, typically:

  • Evaluation of temper in glass
  • Verification of annealing
  • Observation os strains in moulded products
  • Detection of weld and flow patterns
  • Examination of flow patterns and gate efficiency
  • Identification of irregulareties due to mould deficiencies or temperature gradients
