Committed to Quality

Our goal is to provide our customers with the highest levels of quality and reliability, while also leading technological development in the foundry and forge component manufacturing industry.

At AMPO we guarantee optimal quality, and so perform intermediate and final inspections in all our production areas. These inspections are documented with the corresponding reports and certifications, are coordinated directly by an efficient and highly qualified team, and conducted at all times in accordance with both internal and external quality assurance standards and procedures. Every step, from purchase order receipt through procurement, non-destructive testing (NDT), machining, weld overlays, testing and packaging, are performed in accordance with the regulations stipulated in the Quality Assurance Manuals.

We also check all our components before delivery, and offer our customers the chance to be present on site for these tests.

Non destructive tests and test labs

We likewise have the very latest testing facilities and highly qualified Internal Quality Control personnel to guarantee the reliability of our components. We conduct:

Non destructive tests and test labs

Non-Destructive Tests Laboratory tests

Non-Destructive Tests, such as:X-rays (radiography, cobalt, iridium and linear accelerator), dye penetrant testing , dimensional control, ultrasound testing , magnetic particle testing (wet and dry), PMI (Positive Materials Identification), visual inspections, high-pressure testing, etc.

Laboratory tests: Chemical tests, mechanical tests, impact tests, hardness measurements, ferrite content tests, metallography analyses and corrosion tests.

Non destructive tests and test labs

Our management procedures are entirely based on the strictest quality standards.

CMM and final inspection

Our commitment to precision and perfection requires that the inspection of any manufactured products and parts is of a consistently high quality.

Excellent process control techniques, combined with advanced measuring and testing equipment, in our temperature-controlled metrology inspection room, ensure that the components manufactured by AMPO meet client drawing requirements.

With a full range of measurement and reporting services, our customers receive the measurement information required for product verification and quality control. 

We include:

  • First article and in-process inspection by CMM
  • Final inspection and testing with reports and certification.
