Can small amounts of epoxy inside the ferrule be observed after curing?



Too little epoxy inside the ferrule CANNOT be observed / tested-for after curing.  Therefore, processes and controls MUST be implemented which ensure consistent and sufficient epoxy quantities inside the ferrule assembly.  Pneumatic epoxy dispensing systems are very common, and they can work very well.  However, the amount of epoxy that is dispensed with such systems will vary depending upon the epoxy viscosity, which will change through the pot-life of the epoxy.  These systems can be effective, but only if the production processes account for this change of epoxy, and have proper processes and controls in place to ensure proper epoxy quantity has been injected.
