Quality assurance

Green Sand Control System

Our mold sand is continuously monitored by our Green Sand Control System, checking each batch produced. In addition, Ferroloy takes samples daily that are run in our lab and samples are sent to independent labs as a cross check.

Brinell Hardness Testing

Hardness values generally relate to an alloy’s machinability and wear resistance which Ferroloy monitors using a Tinius Olsen machine.

Tensile Testing

Sample specimens of standardized dimensions are used to test ultimate tensile strength, yield strength, and elongation using a Tinius Olsen testing machine.

Chemical Composition

The chemical composition of an alloy has a significant bearing on its performance properties. Ferroloy checks the chemical composition on each tap before pouring so the melt department can make required adjustments to deliver the designed metallurgical integrity through the use of Oxford Instruments foundry mass spectrometer.

Dimensional Inspection

To ensure a part meets dimensional requirements within defined tolerances, Ferroloy uses a Brown & Sharpe 4.5.4 coordinate measuring machine (CMM) along with an assortment of customer supplied gauges and hand held measurement equipment, we work closely with all our customers up front to ensure key characteristics are monitored to ensure peak performance through assembly to the end user.
