QUALITY AND ENVIRONMENT

TECHNOLOGICALLY ADVANCED STEEL PRODUCTS

The company, after the UNI EN ISO 9001 certification obtained in 1993 (one of the first in Italy), has further implemented the level of quality assurance as a necessary condition for the achievement of the industry leadership in Italy and an important role in Europe and in the Mediterranean area, achieving earliest the update to the 2008 version and now to the 2015 version of the Standard.
The goal achieved: the integration of the quality system with the daily business reality.
Consolidated results: an effective management system that harmonises and optimizes performance and creates a solid base on which product certifications are based.
We obtained approvals with the authorized and state bodies of several European countries (France, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, United Kingdom, Spain, Croatia, Romania, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia) for a total of over 30 types of products.
We also produce according to ASTM, BS, EN, ISO, SIA or other regulations indicated by the customer.
The CB Trafilati Acciai obtained in 2016 the European status of AEO (Authorized Economic Operator) that allows us to simplify the export practices of our products.
Finally, the company has implemented an Ethic Code and internal regulations, and meets the requirements of Italian Legislative Decree 231/2001.
QUALITY CONTROL AND LABORATORIES
Thanks to one of the most complete internal Laboratories of the industry, we are able to carry out all the tests, destructive and not, required by current regulations and metallographic analyzes to verify that the technical specifications of the projects, the International Norms and the company standards are respected in the various stages of production.
We monitor the quality of the incoming raw material, the parameters in production and perform numerous types of tests on the finished product.
This control procedure allows to obtain the double result of optimizing the quality of the finished product and of implementing the raw and auxiliary materials to adapt to the new needs of the customer and modern projects.
The internal laboratory is therefore decisive for the high quality standard of the products of CB Trafilati Acciai S.p.A., a proven quality by our competitiveness and success on national and international markets.

The internal laboratory is able to perform the following tests:

  • Axial tensile test
  • Fatigue
  • Relaxation at temperatures between 20°C and 70°C
  • Alternate bending and 180 ° fold
  • Torsion
  • Corrosion under tension in distilled water or acid
  • Hydrogen embrittlement verification
  • Deflected tensile test
  • Impact resistance of sheathing
  • Bond conservation under thermal variations
  • Stress cracking resistance (sheath aging)
  • Friction test
  • Static and dynamic water leak tightness between strand and sheath
  • Rotative flexure of sheathed product
  • Quantity, continuity and adherence of the zinc coating of the wires
  • Metallurgical and inclusional analysis
  • Analysis on pickling baths and waste water
