Component inspection and testing.
Our quality control personnel are dedicated to ensure all products conform to customer specification. Guided by a certified quality management system to international standards.
Every production run is subject to first off inspection, in line inspection and last off inspection.
Component inspection jigs (gauges) ensure that forgings are dimensionally correct. The principal of Go-No go gauges assist in both the hot and cold inspection process.
Identification and traceability
The Shot blast process removes all scale and impurities from the surface of the forging leaving a clean smooth surface finish.
Forgings are sanded to brake any sharp edges and remove any unwanted material.
Cooling of forgings.
Vermiculite is a hydrous phyllosilicate mineral. It undergoes significant expansion when heated. Exfoliation occurs when the mineral is heated sufficiently, and the effect is routinely produced in commercial furnaces.
At Bensch Forge we use vermiculite in the slow cooling or annealing of forged products. Annealing increases metals ductility and reduce its hardness, making it more workable, This significantly assists in the process of machining the product to the desired shape. This service/process decreases machining cost for the customer and us.
At Bensch forge we provide water and oil quenching.
Quenching is a type of heat treatment and described as the rapid cooling of a work piece to obtain certain material properties. It prevents low-temperature processes, such as phase transformations, from occurring by only providing a narrow window of time in which the reaction is both thermodynamically favourable and kinetically accessible. This process reduce crystalline and thereby increasing the hardness of alloys.
