Material Traceability: The Foundation Of Our Quality Guarantee.

 

Casting Serialization
Every casting* receives a unique serial number which is cast on a non-machined surface, whenever possible. A bar coded production ticket bearing this serial number is collected after the casting is poured. The bar coded tickets representing the castings poured from each ladle are assigned a heat number as they are scanned and this information is stored permanently stored on hard disc within our Q.C. data base. A test bar from every heat of gray iron and every ladle of ductile iron is poured in accordance with ASTM standards.

Metallurgical Control
We produce several different grades of gray and ductile iron. This process produces materials with superior mechanical properties and excellent machinability. It requires very careful selection of raw materials and absolute matallurgical control. This tight metallurgical tolerance is maintained through the use of a 2013 Spectrolab spectrometer.
