Tensile testing of metallic materials on Universal Testing Machines (10 Tons, 30 Ton Tons, 60 Ton and 100 Tons)
Hardness testing , Bench type and portable (Rockwell,Brinnel and Vicker)
Bend testing of metallic materials.
Charpy Impact Testing both at room temp and below zero
Charpy Impact Testing Machine 15/30 Kg-m/CM2
Compression Strength of refractory materials
The department has unique installation of most modern spectrometer (Spectromax Germany of 26 elements) for analysis of Iron/ Steel and Copper based materials / alloys, adjacent to the melting section of HMC to provide accurate reliable and fast track analysis in a minimum time, since good process control requires prompt feed back.
ii. Wet Chemistry/analysis
All foundry inputs such as Ferro Alloys (Ferro Silico, Ferro Manganese, Ferro Chrome, Ferro Nickel & Ferro Vanadium etc), Al, Ni, Cu, Tin, Lead and their alloys are got checked before being incorporated into production function, in addition to these following testing facilities are also available.
– Physical & chemical testing of silica sand and Bentonite Clay.
– Refractory Materials of all kinds
– Sodium Silicate, Water and Oil etc
iii. Equipment and machinery
HMC has the facility of repair and calibration of instruments like:-
– Pyrometers, pressure gauges, thermocouples, temperature indicators, meggers , avometers, voltmeters, dial indicators, vernier calipers, micrometers, sprit levels, steel taps and steel rules etc.
Metrology section has precision machines like:-
– Projector JTT-500-II , ( 200 x100 / 0.001 mm)
– Microscope Type JGX3 (200×100/0.001mm)
– Metroscope JD-5
– 3 Meter length measuring machine JD-10 (0-3 meter/0.001 mm) and others for the measurement of
– For the examination of segregation, weld quality, pinholes etc.
– Identification of microstructure
– Grain size determination
– Examination of Internal cracks

– Process control
For determining depth of hardness of harden- able steels
Using Meta Serve End Quench Unit (Buhler UK)
Hydrostatic testing up to 150 bars pressure can be carried out with the existing facility
Pneumatic testing up to 7 kg/cm2 can be carried out with existing facility
ISLAMABAD: Following recent observations of the Supreme Court, the Capital Developrncmt Authority (CDA) decided to build a pedestrian bridge on Constitution Avenue near Pak Secretariat to facilitate the citizens. During hearing of an encroach- ment case. tbe apex court observed that there was no facility for pedestrains on constitution avenue. Later, the civic agency awarded the contract to Heavy Mechanical Complex, (HMC). “It is to intimate your quoted rates for the subject arch type pedestrian bridge having a span of 50 meters stand approved by the competent authority.”
“It is the r efore requested to immediately mobilise resources to start construction activities at site. Under intimation to this office and furnish requisite documents for signing of contract agreement” read the CDA letter issued on Jan 3. Meanwhile., the CDA also awarded contract to the HMC to design, engineer, manufacture, supply, erect and install three overhead pedestrian bridges near H-9 Sunday Bazaar on Kashmir liighway, Faisal Avenue ncar Pims and Jinnah Avenue near the G-9 gate to Fatima Jinnah Park. In all six pedesrrian bridges would be installed in the capital.
According to PC-l finallised a few years ago, eight bridges were to be set up in different pans of the city. But only two of them could be installed on Islamabad Highway. However. the sources said during the last one month the Secretariat project was eccp expedited, “Since Supreme Court also took up the issue, we expedited the project and soon the four new bridges would also be installed.
Meanwhile, we are also working on the files of two more bridges which are to be installed on Faisal Avenue near Pims and on IJP Road.” an offidal of the CDA said.
