Quality Assurance

A strong quality assurance and control department is essential to ensure the successful completion of any project.

Whether it is ensuring that control rods in a nuclear reactor will move smoothly, or checking that the weld joint on a rocketmotor is strong enough to withstand a journey to outer space, our quality assurance department is committed to meeting the stringent requirements laid out by our customers.

Right from the raw material inspection and testing phase, our engineers painstaikingly monitor every step of the manufacturing process, making sure that desired quality standards are achieved.

Destructive Testing

Our LEICA optical laser tracker is used for various applicatins where precise measurements are required. It is capable of measuring different kinds of geometrical properties like flatness, parallelism, perpendicularity, circularity, cylindricity etc. We have used this laser tracker for ensuring that the guide rails for a roll-on shield for a reactor are perfectly flat, and checking that the ovality and verticality of a metallic canister is within the specified tolerance
