Guide to Small-Parts Analysis


Small parts present a challenge for quality control (QC) and production managers of metalworking manufacturers — particularly those in aerospace and automotive applications that demand tight QC at every step of the supply chain. 


Notoriously hard-to-analyze parts include metal wires, rods, and screws as well as other fasteners less than approximately 6 cm in their greatest dimension, along with thin metal plates and sheets. Many analyzers are not well suited to the task. This can lead to critical problems, including regulatory penalties, a reworking of parts, finished product recalls or more catastrophic consequences.


“High-Precision Analysis of Small Parts for Aerospace and Automotive Applications” surveys the benefits and drawbacks of existing QC approaches and examines the advantages offered by new generations of analyzers. It is a guide for assisting managers in determining the best analytical solution for their small-parts testing requirements. Content topics include analytical challenges, conventional analysis methods, sample positioning, calibration and standards, and selecting a small-parts metal analyzer.
