EDL hold the BS EN 9100:2009 accreditation and operate a dedicated quality control service for the manufacture of casting products and components. The inspection department which is staffed by five permanent highly skilled and experienced engineers, is fully equipped to handle all dimensional inspection processes, as well as facilities for non destructive testing as below.
Depending on your requirements we can offer a wide range of inspection programmes to suite the product, ranging from full inspection of every component and feature though to first off or parts off according to agreed statistical variance requirements, ie, 1 in every 200.
Our dedicated quality control department is set up with the following:
CNC CMM: Brown and Sharpe with PC DMIS Software - Travel of 500mm in 'X', 600mm in 'Y' and 400mm in 'Z'. Part programming and printing of results used for statistical analysis.

AIR GAUGING: For measurement of tight limit tapers and holes.
OTHER EQUIPMENT: Shadow Graph with DRO, portable surface finish and ultrasonic measurement equipment, hardness testing and conventional metrology measuring devices.
TRACEABILITY: From the moment something is checked out of our bonded materials store it is accounted for at each stage of casting, machining and finishing right through to despatch. Components are released with full certification and batch traceability.
