All products undergo through inspection and tests by out Quality Assurance Department at varios stages of manufacturing according to internationally established inspection procedures and methods. HMC is equipped with both destructive and non-destructive testing facilities and a metrological laboratory.
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
– Detection of Non Metallic Inclusions
– 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
The quality policy of Heavy Mechanical Complex is based upon: “Quality performance is a commitment to excellence by each company employee, it is achieved by team work and through a process of continuous improvement and compliance of applicable legal and quality management system (ISO 9001:2015) requirements.” “We are dedicated to being seen as an organization which provides quality products and services which meet or exceed the expectations of our clients and relevant interested parties.”
The safety policy of Heavy Mechanical Complex, Taxila is based upon:-
Importance of safety is pre-requisite and cannot be ignored. Human life is valuable and ought to be protected by all means. Besides human life the safety of plant Machinery and other operative equipment is also important. Safety is not an individual’s concern rather it is observed collective efforts and is the responsibility of everybody. It needs attention by everyone at all times. Conduct of routine safety surveys is a routine practice to find and eliminate unsafe working conditions and control hazards. Our company is committed to take reasonable effort to eliminate the hazards that cause accident and injury. We are committed to continuing improvement toward an accident free workplace through effective Administration, Education and Training. Safety procedure/instructions described in Safety Manual of the company are based on international safety practices. These instructions are displayed at all the relevant/ concerned area of activity and mandatory for all the employees. Safety Officer nominated by the Managing Director along with all the heads of department will be responsible for the implementation of Safety Manual of the company.
