euskalforging collaboration with the aforementioned technology centres includes the following aspects, among others:

  • R+D and metallurgical process engineering:
  • Technological services, including the following:
    • Tests and analyses according to standards or particular specifications
    • Chemical analyses of steels:
      • Analysis of C & S using an automatic analyser
      • Analysis of metals using plasma emission spectrometry (ICP-OES))
      • Analysis of metals using spark emission spectrometry
    • Chemical analyses on aluminium alloys and steels
    • Hydrogen analysis using thermal conductivity according to ASTM E1447
  • operario comprobando una pieza
    Mechanical tests
    • Tensile tests (at room temperature, high temperature, low temperature and/or low speed)
    • Hardness tests (Rockwell, Brinell, Vickers))
    • Impact bending tests (Charpy at room temperature and/or low temperature)
    • Bending tests: 3-point, fatigue, tenacity, etc.
  • Structural testing
    • Grain size
    • Determination of non-metallic inclusions in steels
    • Metallographic / materialographic analysis (microstructure of non-ferrous alloys, microstructure of tool steels, microinclusions, macroinclusions in steel rolled products)
    • Determination of ferrite in stainless steels through magnetic induction
  • Non-destructive testing
    • Ultrasound
    • Penetrant liquids
    • Magnetic particles
    • X-rays
  • Preparation of test samples and machining of specimens: all the necessary specimens for the tests in question can be machined in the lab itself, ensuring compliance with existing standards and regulations on shape, dimensions and tolerances
  • Heat treatments and simulations (Jominy, PWHT, etc.)
  • Defect diagnosis and failure analysis
  • Welder homologations and welding procedures

The technology centres have the means and accreditations that enable them to carry out tests according to most standards and regulations (UNE-EN-ISO, ASTM, ASME, API, MIL, NADCAP, etc.).
