Home Test laboratory

From our laboratory, in line with the commitment that Cablescom has with the quality improvement of our processes and customer relationships, we implement three main lines of business to achieve this goal:

SEARCH FOR NEW MATERIALS
CERTIFICATES OF NEW CABLES
TRACKING AND PRODUCTIVE SUPPORT
SEARCH FOR NEW MATERIALS

We are continuously seeking for new materials that, complying with our material specifications, customer requirements and RoHs and REACH regulations, contribute to further improvements and innovative solutions for our products.

To this end, we are in constant contact with our raw material suppliers and we continue to extend our suppliers spectrum, not only at national level, but also internationally. All our suppliers work according to high quality standards and they are certified both in ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards.

Our laboratory equipment allows us to asses within our facilities all the raw materials that are part of the cables, since we count with:

Raw material characterisation equipment:
  • Rollers and press for vacuum-formable plastic sheets production.
  • Climatic chambers and stoves to perform ageing and low temperature tests, thermal cycles, and material compatibility tests.
  • Carbon black dispersion and content tests.
  • Fluency, Viscosity and Hardness index
  • Fire behaviour properties determination
  • Determination of Gas Emissions Acidity determination:
    • Halogens determination.
    • Oxygen Limit index.
    • Permeametre
Specific optical properties measurement equipment:
  • Optical reflectometers (OTDR)
  • PMD tools
  • Chromatic dispersion equipment

We also measure the behaviour of these raw materials once the cable is finished using:

  • Equipment for electrical and mechanical tests in telecommunications and signalling cables.
  • Equipments for mechanical and environmental tests in optic fibre cables.
  • Equipments for fire behaviour tests.

CERTIFICATES OF NEW CABLES

In close collaboration with the Engineering Department and with the customer, we take part in the certification process of new cables since the prototype phase:

  • Search and test of new materials.
  • Intermediate products tests through the manufacturing process.
  • Finished cable tests (mechanical tests in optic fibre cables)

In our laboratory, we can perform the majority of the tests required by standards, which makes it possible to offer our clients an integral service and a great technical support.

TRACKING AND PRODUCTIVE SUPPORT

In the laboratory of Cablescom we understand that the way of contributing to the efficiency and excellence of our products is by setting out three performance guidelines:

TECNICAL SUPPORT AND TRAINING OF THE PRODUCTION PLANT STAFF
  • Training of new employees in the managing of the measurement equipment.
  • Technical support to the production and quality control staff.
CONTROL OF THE PRODUCTIVE PROCESSES
  • Periodic tests on raw materials, following our quality plans.
  • Manufacture control of intermediate products (isolated thread, transformer secondary conductors, etc).
  • Specific tests control, for example on fire test.

MEASUREMENT EQUIPMENT CALIBRATION
  • Our laboratory manages the whole calibration system of production, quality control, and environment and laboratory equipments.
  • Besides the management of the system, we have internal standards that allow us to perform the calibration of the equipments within our own facilities, allowing a much faster detection of eventual deviations.
