Quality Control & Testing
Quality Control Process
Sealey operates an independently audited quality control process, which is continually reviewed and approved. Before being accepted into the catalogue, all products are exposed to extensive testing procedures. Once catalogued and before being certified for sale, all deliveries of product are inspected and tested at the point of unloading. Sealey has always invested heavily in both QC equipment and personnel, resulting in peace of mind that we offer safe and dependable products, which comply with the latest documented standards.
In order to comply with European RoHS directive, all electrical and electronic equipment must be certified for limited or zero content of specified hazardous substances. To verify this, Sealey use the latest in X-Ray Fluorescence technology to detect the chemical composition of the materials used.
Electronic equipment must also be tested for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), to ensure it does not emit excessive levels of electromagnetic radiation, which could harm the operator, or interfere with other electrical equipment such as televisions and radios. Sealey sample both the airborne radiation and online noise using a range of sophisticated detection equipment.
Hand & Vibration Testing
Sealey operate processes to control exposure to the effects of hand and arm vibration. In-house equipment has been produced in accordance with documented standards. Our Air/Electric tools are sampled to verify that stated figures are within hand and arm vibration guidelines.
PAT (Portable Appliance Test) Testing
All mains (and site) electrical equipment is PA tested during the procurement and stock phases of their life. This ensures the product is electrically safe. Importantly, and in addition to the final inspection, any electrical product which passes through our Service Centre undergoes a PA test to ensure it continues to be safe for use.
Torque Wrench Calibration
We offer a competitively priced calibration service for our complete range of mechanical and digital torque wrenches.
Used for testing the hardness levels at certain points of a tool, ensuring that it complies with or exceeds the recommended tolerance criteria.
Axle Stand Load Testing
We randomly select a vehicle support stand from each and every delivery, and put it through our own rigorous test procedure using a 50 tonne calibrated load cell, to ensure it is capable of supporting a load well in excess of the individual stated capacity.
IBQC Testing (Inbound Quality Control)
Once catalogued and before being certified approved for sale, all deliveries of products are inspected and tested at the point of unloading. We have always invested heavily in both QC equipment and personnel, resulting in peace of mind that we offer safe and dependable products, which comply with the latest documented standards, where applicable.
