Revving Up in the Post COVID-19 World
The automotive industry is set to ramp up production as the COVID-19 restrictions ease. METSUCO (Metallurgical Supply Company) is ready to resupply the automakers with their industrial needs.
What has the reopening looked like so far? Most auto companies – General Motors, Ford, Honda, Toyota, Chrysler, Nissan, and others – have rolled out a series of safety measures to protect workers. These include the use of temperature monitors for those entering plants, personal protective equipment such as face masks and shields, revamping and deep-cleaning factory floors to emphasize social distancing, and more as reported by Fox Business.
In addition to these steps, reopening will require close attention to supplier related issues as well as potential labor shortages. With over 30 years in business, METSUCO has reliably served several industries. Throughout the year, METSUCO has remained open, observing all safety guidelines. Our customers in the auto industry can count on reliable, secure, and speedy shipping of supplies. METSUCO has stocked up on key consumables such as hardness test blocks, abrasive discs, NDT sprays, and more.
Hardness Testing Supplies for the Automotive Industry
METSUCO is a major supplier of hardness testing equipment and consumables. Hardness testing is essential to automotive manufacturing. The autobody of an automobile is constantly faced with environmental and human threats that can endanger both the life of their users and the life of the car, truck, or SUV. Hardness Testing on engine material can not only improve the efficiency of the engine but also ensure its durability. And these are just two major components of a vehicle.
NDT for the Automotive Industry
NDT, or Non-Destructive Testing, is a set of techniques for testing anything from piston rods to transmission gears and other critical automotive parts and components. This testing ensures quality production, making the goal of zero defects possible. It makes in-line testing possible, allowing for process control and rapid optimization of production processes.
Liquid penetrant testing is one of the most reliable methods of nondestructive testing used in automotive and other industries. It is easy to use and can reliably locate very fine surface discontinuities. Used on ferrous, nonferrous, and even nonmetallic materials, dye penetrant inspection is the most common and cost-effective of all NDT inspection methods. METSUCO carries liquid penetrant and liquid Spotcheck® penetrant kits that are reliable, priced for value, and ready for use at temperatures between 40° F to 125° F.
The automotive industry may have a long road to normalcy in the post-COVID-19 world. Industry manufacturers should count on the members of their supply chain to come through in this time of tumult and change. As a stable, reliable, and long-time supplier over 30 years, METSUCO is a valuable source of quality testing equipment and consumable products essential to the industry. Whether it’s NDT testing, abrasive polishing, cutoff wheels, etc. if the auto industry needs it, we can source it.
