FURTHER TECHNICAL INFORMATION
Parts undergo testing in our workshop to ensure that they meet the strictest requirements for the greatest reliability :
- Hardness testing
- Size testing
- Lengths under load and vertical stiffness
- Non-destructive test (magnetic particle inspection, dye penetrant inspection etc.)
- Metallographic testing (metallurgical structure, decarburisation etc.)
- Shot peening intensity measurements
- Failure analysis with research into the cause of rupture, if required
Raw materials :
For medium and large-sized springs, (Ø 18–97 mm), we use low alloy steels 51CrV4 and 52CrMoV4 in accordance with the standard EN 10089. Ultra-sonic testing is available on request to detect any internal defect. For smaller springs, there is the option of using stainless steels, nickel-based alloys (Inconel, Nimonic etc.), titanium (Grade 5 Ti-6Al-4V), copper beryllium (CuBe2) etc.
Specialist processes :
Drawing on a wealth of authorised suppliers, we collaborate with subcontractors to offer standard surface treatments, such as special paints, many different forms of protection, non-destructive testing and shot peening, to name but a few.
We also have in-house, NADCAP-approved passivation equipment and hold the relevant certifications for the following: Ratier Figeac, Airbus, fly-by-wire.
