In order for Axon Engineering to achieve optimum quality and satisfy the customer’s requirements, we perform a variety of non destructive tests. The purpose of these tests is to simulate everyday use of the tool and thus eliminate the possibilities of failure prior to the release of the tool. Moreover, we have the capability to perform Non Destructive Tests on the produced components to identify possible discontinuities and cavities on the surface and shallow subsurface ,that may lead to large cracks and hence failure of the tool.
- Dye Penetrant Inspection
Our company has invested into the training of its Quality Control staff to perform Dye Penetrant Inspection Tests. Commonly used as a primary method to inspect welds, this type of test can allow the visual detection of any surface porosity and/or cracks with the use of a developer. This process follows EN ISO 3452-1.
- Magnetic particle Inspection
A further N.D.T procedure that our qualified staff can perform is the Magnetic particle inspection. This method utilizes magnetic particles and creates magnetic fields that allow the inspector to detect surface defects. Our Quality Control staff is qualified according to EN ISO 9712 Magnetic Level II.
- Dead Load Test
Accordingly to client specification, our company is skilled to apply loads on tools to ensure functionality of the manufactured tool. All our measuring equipment is validated yearly and we are able to issue Dead Load test certificates. In case of complex designs our technical department is able to design jigs to satisfy the customer needs. Our Dead Load tests are performed accordingly to DIN EN 13155.
Maximum load: 20 tonnes
- Pressure tests
At Axon Engineering we constantly strive to improve our quality levels and ensure all tools are safe and reliable when they reach our customers. Hence, to eliminate any failures of manufactured pressure systems, our staff is trained to perform pressure tests both pneumatic and hydrostatic. This guarantees safety and leak tightness where this is required.
