We have a complete laboratory where we analyze all the materials used in the manufacturing of the plungers:

  • Each lot of steel is certified not only by our suppliers but also by our lab so we can assure it fulfills the strict specifications of our materials.
  • We know our powder suppliers check the composition and hardness after welding a sample, however their welding process has nothing to do with the actual processes used in manufacturing plungers. We check each lot of powder after spraying a sample plunger with our HVOF equipments so we know exactly how that powder will behave when we spray our plungers.
  • We blend our own powders. Again we adjust our blends after spraying a sample plunger so we can assure that our blends have the exact specifications of our standards. We are able also to blend powders with specific requirements from our customers.
