Our areas of expertise

Qualitech services in mechanical engineering

Product quality is nowadays an indispensable performance feature in the competition for the favor of customers. Qualitech has the necessary services to assist customers in the mechanical engineering industry in complying with regulations, specifications, etc.

Non-destructive testing (NDT)

Our extensive experience in mechanical engineering helps you to use NDT procedures correctly with our certified inspectors and to carry out the necessary tests professionally and efficiently. Our wide range includes the appropriate test methods for your specific applications on site. Thanks to our various locations in Switzerland, we can guarantee you short transport routes, which can prevent or minimise interruptions to operations.

Checking the technical cleanliness of machine components

Qualitech has an accredited testing laboratory according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 and offers services for the technical cleanliness of machine components of various sizes. Residues such as residual particles and liquids that often occur inside the parts are analyzed by FTIR spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy with energy dispersive X-ray analysis (EDX). The inspection of technical cleanliness is based on the VDA regulations vol. 19/19.1 and ISO 16232, serves to prevent consequential damage and is frequently used in incoming and outgoing inspection as well as in the monitoring of manufacturing processes.

Destructive test methods for determining material properties

To test the material properties and the dynamic strength of components and machine components, we can choose from a variety of different mechanical-technological test methods and offer you the right solution. We test the mechanical properties of the material under various temperature conditions using tensile and impact tests.

Experts in the field of materials

Qualitech has a group of experts at its disposal who will assist you with detailed advice on the choice of the right material. We analyse and characterise all types of materials, surfaces and coatings in the macro and micro range. A team of metallographers with portable equipment is at your side to take samples of fractured surfaces and microstructures using impression technology whenever metallographic examinations of machine components are to be carried out during a short-term inspection phase. With more than 30 analytical characterization methods, Qualitech has one of the largest laboratories for materials testing in Switzerland and offers you comprehensive test results – all from a single source.

Precision and accuracy in mechanical engineering

In our accredited laboratories in Birr and Winterthur we calibrate measuring and testing equipment as well as complex components in terms of length and torque. In mechanical manufacturing, test equipment and calibration management are of decisive importance. We support our customers in mechanical engineering with our proven and efficient solution for measuring equipment monitoring:

  • The use of the test equipment is controlled and compliance with the calibration intervals is ensured.
  • The stock of test equipment and the information assigned to it is managed.
  • Calibration is carried out and documented in a traceable manner.
