F.G.S. Facilities and Resources

Machining and Assembly:

Specialized F.G.S. departments equipped with numerically controlled machines, perform the following precisions operations:

  • turning
  • boring
  • milling
  • drilling
  • grinding
  • threading

Complete and modern welding facilities and experienced operators enable F.G.S. to assemble castings and wrought parts together to produce fully fabricated furnace components.

The laboratory facilities are among the most modern and complete for an high-alloy foundry and include:

  • two 24-channels automatic vacuum spectrographs
  • one 18-channels spectrograph
  • one sequential research spectrograph
  • nitrogen and carbon automatic analyzers
  • 3 metallographic microscopes
  • complete mechanical testing machines for use up 2100°F (1150°C)
  • controlled atmosphere furnace for experimental heat treatments
  • 25 lbs (ca. 12 kg) laboratory melting furnace
  • complete sand control equipment
  • portable X-rays fluorescence analyzer
  • various hardness testing machines

The F.G.S. laboratories are at customers' disposal for research examination on corrosion and failure cases, in order to study possible improvements of heat-resisting cast parts.

Quality Control:
Non-destructive testing and inspections are normal practice at F.G.S. They are performed by skilled and qualified operators to assure the best compliance with specifications.

The equipment at F.G.S.'s disposal is available for the following final controls, beside the systematic chemical analysis made on all melts:

  • dimensional controls
  • surface finish
  • radiography and gammagraphy
  • ultrasonic testing
  • liquid penetrants
  • metallographic controls
  • pressure testing

The Quality Control System applied at F.G.S. complies with the International Norm DIN EN ISO 9001:2000.
