Quality assurance

Hauck Heat Treatment The Netherlands has laboratories and testing areas at every one of its facilities that carry out quality assurance measures.

Alongside the hardness testing methods most commonly used in the industry, i.e. the Rockwell, Vickers and Brinell methods, we can also conduct hardness testing on case-hardened and nitrided components. Our quality assurance services include metallographic structure evaluations and tests as well as metallurgic analyses conducted using the spectral analysis and GDOS analysis methods.

In addition, we offer our customers salt spray tests in order to assess corrosive tendencies, tensile tests on components and several visual and leak testing methods to examine the brazing joint we realize.

The main aims of the tests and analyses conducted at our in-house laboratories are to perform feasibility studies and to optimise quality assurance through preventive risk and error analyses. In this way, we follow a long-term zero error strategy, which in turn leads to sustainably reduced costs and avoids the need for cost-intensive reworking

Documented quality and safety

Documented quality and safety provide a decisive competitive edge.  A wide range of test procedures is conducted at Hauck Heat Treatment The Netherlands. These take the form of interim tests performed as part of continuous quality management, and also of final tests performed to measure the success of the heat treatment or surface treatment procedure in question and to safeguard processes by means of approval testing. As a leading quality supplier in heat treatment and surface technology, Hauck Heat Treatment The Netherlands can call upon outstanding laboratory capacities and highly qualified experts. The following test procedures are offered in our state-of-the-art laboratories:

  • Hardness test HB, HV (including microvickers), HRC, Knoop

  • Tensile testing
  • Spectral analysis
  • GDOS analysis
