A continuous commitment to quality
The Pittini Group Quality Lab is accredited under UNI CEI EN ISO IEC 17025:2005, attesting the technical competence of the laboratory personnel, the adequacy of the testing instruments and the independence of the laboratory activities. The laboratory has been accredited by the national body Accredia, signatory of the ILAC MRA agreement (International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation Mutual Recognition Arrangement). This accreditation ensures that all test reports issued by the laboratory are mutually recognised and valid worldwide.
The Laboratory carries out the following tests and analyses:
Chemical analyses, including wet spectrometric and chemical tests for the chemical characterization of steel and most of the strategic materials, control of steel mill secondary products and environmental monitoring.
Mechanical tests, mainly to determine the strength and ductility of steels.
Metallography tests, including above all the analyses to characterize the crystalline grain, the stages and inclusional state of the steel.
Geotechnical tests, to control the production process and the quality of Granella®, an aggregate for bituminous and cement concrete.
In January 2016, the in-house laboratory of Ferriere Nord Spa was accredited pursuant to UNI CEI EN ISO IEC 17025:2005 “General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories”.
This accreditation certifies that our laboratory personnel has the required competence, that our testing instruments are suitable for their intended purpose and that laboratory activities are carried out independently, thus guaranteeing the accuracy and reliability of our test results.
Our laboratory was accredited by Accredia, the Italian body that signed the ILAC MRA agreements. This accreditation ensures that all test reports issued by entities accredited by signatory bodies are mutually recognised at the International level and that they are fully valid in all major global markets.
