Fonderia Quaglia & Colombo has two laboratories, specially equipped to monitor the quality of the cast iron produced by the foundry, and the features of the sand used in the green sand moulding process.
- The first laboratory is designed to provide clients with full information about the physical and chemical characteristics of the materials we produce: chemical analysis, hardness, tensile strength, yield strength, elongation and impact strength. All forms of non-destructive testing (US, MT, RX etc.) are outsourced to specialist external laboratories.
- The second laboratory is designed to monitor the most important features of the moulding sand: permeability, compactness and moisture.
