Even though recent times have brought about a decrease in trade show exhibitors and attendees—there were an estimated 340 exhibitors at the show visited by Appliance at the Donald E. Stevens Convention Center, Chicago, IL—there were still plenty of offerings from those companies that did make it to the 2003 Quality Expo International. Instron Corporation exhibited a new Tukon® 2100 closed-loop hardness tester, which will be released later this year. Fischer Technology Inc. featured a coating probe that they say could be very useful to the appliance industry. According to the company, the ED-10X can measure the thickness of two coatings—a powder coat and galvanized steel—giving the thickness of each, as well as the combined thickness of the two materials. At the ATEQ Corp. booth, the company was exhibiting its third-generation leak tester, which is more than 50 percent smaller than the second-generation model and uses compressed air to test for leaks. One trend making noticed at this year’s show is that of supplier-performed quality testing. According to Instron, it makes more sense for quality testing to be done by the supplier because it is more efficient that way. Testing performed by the supplier does not interrupt the manufacturing process.> The 2005 dates for the biannual show have not yet been released.
