The quality of the components start with the development
All components at IEC are conceived and designed by experienced engineers.
The development is complemented by calculations with a modern software, FEM analyses and simulations as well as tests.
Using the best material is a guarantee for producing the best components
IEC only uses materials from the best manufacturers. IEC develops its own materials for special applications.
Enjoy excellent quality thanks to local production
In modern production facilities in Germany and Europe you can rely on the highest precision and on compliance with local standards and tolerances.
Testing and quality assurance
IEC meets the highest customer requirements. All components are completely checked according to carefully prepared test plans and the results are documented according to customer specifications.
Do you need special tests, certificates or documentation? Feel free to tell us, we will be pleased to include it in the production and testing process.
Testing of the materials used
At IEC all raw materials are carefully tested. The comparison between the factory certificates and the actual values registered through measurements and analyses guarantees that only proper and faultless materials are used. The required specifications can also be checked with metallographic tests (structure) in our own laboratory.
Right: Material analysis by means of X-ray fluorescence, factory certification of the composition and granulation of a welding powder.
We use dye penetrant inspection (DPI) to reveal cracks that are not visible to the eye. The non-destructive testing guarantees totally crack-free components.
The magnetic particle testing also reveals micro-cracks under UV light and thus guarantees totally crack-free components.
Pores or cracks can be detected through X-ray inspections. Both 2D and 3D X-rays (computer tomography) are used to ensure perfect quality of the components.
Right: X-ray inspection of a friction weld and seat armouring
Components can also be tested by means of completely non-destructive ultrasound. Ultrasound allows us to reveal defects in seat armouring or similar components.
The microstructure represents an essential feature of the material properties. It is therefore utterly necessary to analyse and evaluate the structure of the components in the micrograph.
In the in-house metallographic laboratory, components are analysed microscopically, for example to validate and document the correct sequence of heat treatments or other processes.
Right: Microscopic analysis of the connection of a seat armouring, structure of a seat armouring
