The uncompromising pursuit of quality and attention to detail are assets that set our iron castings apart. We take pride in underlining that our castings are made in compliance with the Uni En Iso 9001, TÜV and Lloyds’ Register standards.
Quality check and final testing of our castings are both carried out within the company: this allows us a less desultory and more efficient management, therefore we are able to provide our customers with a guaranteed effective service.
In the production phase, in order to control our cast irons and alloys, we use cutting edge machinery like Leco CS-125 to determine Carbon and Sulfur, our computerized spectrometer, microscopes for metallographic analysis and microhardness tests on matrixes, digital equipment for mechanical tests, modern equipment for ultrasonic analyses and machines for magnaflux controls.
In the post-production phase, in accordance to our customer’s requests, we begin our final testings: our qualified technicians perform mechanical, micrographic, magnetoscopic, dye penetrants , dimensional and marking controls on the supplied iron castings.
At the end of our final inspections, we provide certificates that guarantee the compliance of the iron castings we produce, in accordance with standards and the customers’ requests.
