QUALITY CONTROL

The key to Kerox' outstanding reputation is its multi-stage quality control system that tracks each product through the entire production process. This includes in-house produced ceramic disks, injection molded plastics and outsourced metal components.

These demanding stages include:

  • Thorough inspection and press trials of mold tooling before production approval.
  • Tooling maintenance - on-going monitoring of the condition of tooling to guard against possible degradation of quality. Tooling is kept in first-rate condition at all times.
  • Measurement of outsourced cartridge components (primarily metal).
  • 100% ceramic disk analysis using an Automatic Optical Inspection (AOI) system, providing exacting analysis of all surfaces, edges and main dimensions.
  • Process Control techniques are used throughout the manufacturing processes to carefully monitor and keep under control such ceramic disk characteristics as surface roughness, flatness and contact surface area ratio.
  • Testing of individual components prior to assembly.
  • Testing at sub-assembly stages.
  • Final testing of fully-assembled cartridges (100% using highly sensitive pneumatic procedure).
  • Laboratory water test sampling.
