Experienced technical support staff to assist with your needs
We stand ready to meet our customer’s needs and assist with any quality, metallurgical and casting issues.
Our laboratory has been designed to meet the wide ranging requirements of our customers. We have the capabilities to perform metallurgical inspection, physical assay, chemical analysis and mechanical testing. Quality is paramount and our facility is endowed with up to date equipment and techniques specifically developed to ensure a high level of quality for analysis and investigation.
THE MAIN INSTRUMENTS AND TECHNIQUES
Arc/Spark Optical Emission Spectrometers: are the instruments used for 75% of our analysis, using programs for Cu-base, Zn-base, Al-base and Ni-base alloys.
ICP – OES: a spectrometer that uses a very high temperature excitation source that vaporizes, excites and ionizes atoms. Over time we have developed a great number of quantitative applications to analyze or check the elements in different alloys, for both minor and trace concentrations.
X-Ray Fluorescence: uses non-destructive and reliable methods for qualitative, semi-quantitative as well as quantitative analysis.
Tensile Tester: samples are subjected to a controlled tension until failure. Measurements are made for ultimate tensile strength, yield strength and maximum elongation to ensure all of our metal meets mechanical property specification.
Brinell Hardness Tester: penetration testing to define the hardness of our alloys and help assist our customers with investigation.
Metallography: used to examine the microstructure of our alloys and help assist our customers with investigation.
Electrical Conductivity Testing: this non-destructive testing (NDT) uses eddy current to determine the electrical conductivity.
Classical Wet Chemistry: Gravimetric and Volumetric determinations for Copper, Lead and Nickel.
"We are committed to achieve Customer Satisfaction by providing Quality Product On Time, which is achieved by Total Employee Involvement with Team Work. Our Efforts and Resources are directed to meet our Quality Objectives and Continually Improve the Effectiveness of our Quality Management System."
