Quality

Falci S.r.l.‘s forming and rolling process focuses on total quality, so as to provide all customers with top-quality rolled sections that perfectly match the design and are highly reliable, without any risk of ovalization or lower performance.

Falci S.r.l.‘s Quality Department is equipped with a quantometer for the chemical analysis of materials, a durometer to calculate hardness, machines for checking the mechanical properties to calculate the yield point, and a projector to perform a dimensional check of the shapes.

On request, we can conduct an impact value test, where the impact value measures resilience and tests the product’s performance in extreme environments.

Falci S.r.l. is ISO 9001 / 2008 certified.

 

THE STAGES

  • Receipt of raw material (steel in coils)
  • Unrolling
  • Straightening
  • Descaling (initial surface cleaning)
  • Reheating
  • Rolling (forming –  passing through counter-rotating shaped cylinders: the second and third rolling stands make it possible to process more complex profiles)
  • Customised cutting
  • Deliveries in coils or bars (in this case, usually preceded by a second and final straightening stage)
