1. CASTING DESIGN AND PROCESS
This process is crucial in order to meet the mechanical requirements and ensure the quality of the casting. All the variables in the process are assessed and defined: casting loads, solidification, dimensions, alloys, heat treatments and machining.
Moulding: Manufacturing of moulds for steel casting.
Semi-automatic green sand moulding.
Semi-automatic chemical moulding.
- Manual chemical moulding.
Melting: This process involves melting high-quality raw materials and ferro-alloys using a 2 Tn Induction Furnace.
Various control elements are used and the alloy is inspected by using a spectrometer and software.
Casting: Casting and pouring the steel into moulds using a ladle.
3. DEBURRING AND SHOT BLASTING
Once casting and cooling has taken place, the castings are removed from the mould, cleaned and shot blasted. They are also completely deburred by using mechanical grinding.
4. HEAT TREATMENT
Along with the specified alloy, this process is vital in order to guarantee the desired mechanical characteristics. Various heat treatments are carried out, including:
Quenching and tempering in water or oil.
- Induction tempering.
5. INSPECTION, QUALITY CONTROL AND TESTING
Final Inspection, Quality Control and Testing Process:
Dimensional control and inspection.
NDT (non-destructive testing): magnetic particles, ultrasound, radiography, penetrant liquids, hardness tests.
DT (destructive testing): tensile and compression tests, resilience (charpy) tests.
100% inspection and 100% guarantee for each delivery.
Any machining that the casting needs is managed and coordinated via a network of approved machining workshops, both technically and in terms of production and logistics.
7. OTHER PROCESSES
Managing and carrying out other processes, such as surface treatments (paint, galvanising, etc.) and logistics.
