SADM Quality Specification

SADM Quality Specification

SADM possesses characteristics which present challenges throughout the production and machining process. Process control is key to our success in the production of quality machined parts. Quality is closely monitored at each step throughout our manufacturing process to achieve the highest quality finished SADM parts.

The following pictures are provided to demonstrate acceptable quality levels at final inspection.

SURFACE ROUGHNESS:

We work closely with a client’s design engineering team to meet specific requirements as closely as possible.
Smoothness: – The overall surface smoothness is determined by the mix recipe used for the original part.
Voids:: – The typical surface voids are not to exceed .100″. Smaller voids may be specified by written customer request.

Please specify any custom requirements when submitting your quote request.

EDGE BLOWOUT:

All part edges are machined to a 0.010″ radius. Due to the nature of SADM, some amount of edge chipping should be expected. The level of acceptability is determined by the location and extent of the chipping on the finished part. This characteristic becomes more pronounced on thin walls.

LEAD DISTRIBUTION:

Leaded rubber particles are distributed as uniformly as possible through our SADM mixing process, though the concentration in places may be random.
