Cosmetic Surface Defect Prediction


Cosmetic Surface Defects


The Process

Prediction of cosmetic conditions in stamped sheet metal parts is typically based on experience. But the PVLT team at WMG has developed objective criteria to extend the existing feasibility process for predicting the occurance and severity of these defects. At the same time, the team has developed new ways of understanding the causes of these conditions, and the steps needed to be taken to prevent them.

The Benefits

Implementation of the processes our engineers have deleveloped will allow:

  • Early identification of potential problems and early implementation of solutions
  • Increased confidence in decision-making during part feasibility and priortisation of areas requiring re-work
  • Reduced cost and time associated with re-work
