Metallurgy


This section carries out testing  on crystalline structures and the morphology of metallic materials which facilitates an understanding of the physical and technological properties of these materials: fundamental both in research and innovation and product verification, control and certification.

Main activities:

PREVENTION CONTROL
  • verification of:Metal alloys and their characteristics
  • Conformity of raw materials to current standards or contractual requirements
DETERMINATION OF CHEMICAL COMPOSITION AND DESIGNATION OF METAL ALLOYS:
  • Carbon steel
  • Low and medium alloy steel
  • Cast iron
  • Stainless steel
  • Aluminium and aluminium alloys
  • Titanium and titanium alloys
  • Copper and copper alloys
EXAMINATION OF PROTECTIVE LAYERS (HOT-DIP COATING), ANODIZING etc. – verification of:
  • Thickness (gravimetric, magnetic or optic)
  • Quality (uniformity, adherence etc. according to product standards)

HARDNESS TESTING
  • Rockwell hardness
  • Brinell hardness
  • Vickers hardness
  • Vickers microhardness
  • Shore A and D hardness
  • Barcol hardness

METALLOGRAPHIC STUDY OF THERMAL TREATMENT AND SUPERFICIAL HARDENING
  • Cementation
  • Nitriding
  • Hardening

VERIFICATION OF WELDING
  • Macrographic examination
  • Hardness testing
  • Mechanical testing
    - Visual Testing (VT)
    - Non Destructive Testing (NDT): Penetrant liquids (PT), Magnetic-particle Testing (MT)  and Radiographic Testing (MT)
