New testing methods & facilities
In last few years many new modern testing and checking facilities have been added in our factory. These facilities have been added keeping in view future needs of customers and new applications,
- Spectrometer: A new 30 channel optical emission spectrometer of SpectroMaxx make from West Germany has been procured and installed at factory .This spectrometer used to check incoming raw material and to ensure that correct material is used for the intended application.
- Metallography: Metallurgical polishing, etching, and micro structural examination through metallurgical microscope -these facilities have been started and added in quality set up. Regular metallographic analysis for grain size, cleanliness &, microstructure is carried out for process control and failure analysis .The image storing facility connected with the computer helps in storing the data and transmitting it to concerned people.
- Micro hardness tester: A sophisticated semi-automatic Shimadzu micro hardness tester has been commissioned and is used to check the effectiveness of the treatment carried out.
- Compression testing: Certain specialized automotive applications demand a typical elasticity requirement under compression. Anti-Vibration mounts are subjected to continuous compressive loading and tubes used for them demand a control over maximum deformation under load. The testing for this needs a specialized compression testing facility with on time stress and strain measurement during compression testing. Our company has procured such special purpose machine of 250KN capacity from West German firm Zwick and is under installation & commissioning .This facility will be helpful in testing the tubes for above intended application.
