Ultra Time Saver
Donald was a new hire in the quality department and one of his jobs was inspection of new material arriving at the plant daily.
He would cut samples of the steel sheets and coil stock and carry them to the testing lab on the other side of the building. He used a Wilson Rockwell hardness tester to test the 20 or so different samples each day. Most of his day was taken up with testing and recording all of the results leaving little time to do in-process inspection reports. It did not take him long to realize that if he could take the tester to the material, he could save a tremendous amount of time.
Donald decided on a Phase II MET-U1A portable ultrasonic hardness tester for the job. What a time saver! He could now carry the tester with him to the material receiving area and test the material on the spot. He did not have to record all of his readings by hand anymore because this tester saves each test in its memory. What was taking him hours each day was cut down to about half an hour. When he was done testing, he plugged in the USB cable into his ultrasonic tester and uploaded the results onto his computer.
