Technology

Foundry
  • 5 ton in house furnace
  • Makes 4 and 6-inches billets
  • SAE makes different types of alloy billets 6063 6005 6061 6082 5083 E91E 1060
  • Every alloy has different chemical composition
  • SAE also uses homogenized billets, depending on the profile and requirements

Plan for expansion

With the 9-inch press coming the foundry is expanding as well.

  • 2 furnaces, 10-ton capacity each
  • Will make 4,6 and 9-inch billets
  • Homogenising furnace, all billets will be homogenised

Tool Room
  • Designing is the first step of the process
  • Number of sections: More than 5000

Quality testing Lab

The lab is equipped with several machines to ensure quality assurance and customer satisfaction.

  • - Spectro meter- Assessing the chemical compositions of different alloys
  • - Electrical conductivity meter- Measures the level of conductivity in profiles
  • - Universal testing machine- Measures the tensile strength, proof stress and percentage of elongation of profiles
  • - Hardness testing machine- Records the hardness of final product
  • - Barcol Hardness teste
  • - Rock wela for die hardness testing
  • - Wesbter Testing machine 222
