Alongside the controls guaranteed by the suppliers we perform our checks on incoming material as required by the UNI EN ISO 9000 rule.
Ferriera di Cittadella was the first company in the sector to obtain certification in 1998. Chemical, traction, hardness, impact strength and bending analyses are performed by sampling on every casting we receive.
The material supplied must comply with production requirements. During manufacture, the blades are tested in different phases to check that they correspond to the order.
The importance of thicknessThe blade thickness is decisive for determining the number of square metres that can be obtained from a block. The cost-effectiveness of a process is determined by a quality product that guarantees accurate cutting in the long term. Precision thickness and constant product supply are therefore of fundamental importance. If the thickness exceeds the conventional tolerances the supply is no longer cost-effective.
The quality controls on the thicknesses we produce in our factories are a saving for our customers.
