The independent certification and regular audits provide an assured quality level at VULKAN Technologies Pvt. Ltd. and ensure quality of a high class according to international standards.
The modern foundry for steel castings and spheroid castings is equipped with high-power medium-frequency induction crucible furnaces; at present, this facility can cast 120 tons of steel per month in the form of the most diverse steel and spheroid castings with a raw weight of 30 to 500 kilograms. When it comes to manufacturing sand castings, as a result of using Croning sand cores, one can achieve the maximum possible casting precision and comply with the most stringent tolerances. The centrifugal casting process is launched for the manufacture of symmetric rotary components. Two Horizontal and one Vertical state of art centrifugal casting machines are in operation.
In the aluminium foundry, parts are manufactured using the gravitational die method and the sand casting method. Casting alloys that may be used as options are AlSi10Mg, AlSi12, LM25, LM6 and LM9. Cumbersome test methods such as manufacturing specimens for testing the mechanical properties of the material technologically, metallographic examinations, chemical corrosion investigations as well as controlled measurements using emission spectrometry ensure the quality of the cast products. The creation of 3.1/3.2 test certificates is standard according to DIN EN 10204. The aluminium foundry of VULKAN Technologies Pvt.
