This lead FIRAD to have a partnership with Mitutoyo Corp., Nikon Corp., Carl Zeiss AG, AMETEK Inc.
Our control plan allows us to check continuously our products along the production line, to ensure our high-quality standard. A particularly attention is dedicated to our heat treatment and for this reason, at every batch we perform:
- Hardness test to be sure it meets the required value
- Microscopic analysis to ensure the right steel crystalline structure
On the 100% of our production we do a final test to ensure that our products meet the following characteristic:
- Correct degree of spray atomization
- Correct sealing of the seat under pressure
