Below you can see some of the testing instruments we use at Keller & Kalmbach to meet the high quality and safety requirements at all times.
Initial sample test reports are mainly used in the automotive industry for the release of new products and processes. Generally, initial samples are specified according to VDA 2 or PPAP, but these must be agreed in the order.
In general, initial sampling is not provided for standard parts according to VDA. The cost of sampling is usually very high in relation to the price of the part. In any case, a simplified form of the product and process approval procedure should be used here.
