Batch Traceability

The strict control measures we have in place means that a finished fastener can be traced back to the original material melt or heat. These procedures also allow a full history on every operation we have done or have had done to that component. This means that if you picked up one of our super duplex bolts, we could tell you;

  • Where the material came from
  • Any additional heat treatment/outside process

Manufacture

  • That it was screwed on a capstan lathe or CNC
  • The gauge it was checked with
  • The calibration record for that gauge

External treatment

  • The approved supplier it was sent to for heat treatment
  • Where on the load it was positioned during the treatment
  • How long it was in the furnace
  • The time taken to water quench
