The entire Fonderie Pandolfo’s process was developed to obtain and meet the best quality standard on the market and the specifications of our customers.
From melting to packing, several sequential controls are planned in order to prevent or sort out any non-conformity.
In addition to the standard spectrometer checks on the melt and cast, checks are also performed on the quantities of hydrogen; a 100% control is also provided for by an ultrasound system to identify any possible cracks or internal or surface flaws and pre- and post-homogenization visual checks are also made in addition to a geometrical control during cutting.
Thanks to modern computer systems the main process variables, from the melting to the storage, are always monitored and recorded to guarantee the quality level reproduction.
Each cast, after passing all the tests, is stamped and labelled allowing for complete traceability of the raw material charged into the furnace. Additionally, a sample is kept for one year for possible additional controls.
