In the past month, high school students and students, our scholarship holders, visited us. We proudly and with full right say “ours” because that’s what they are. Children of our employees, holders of our scholarships, our ambassadors today and our colleagues tomorrow.
From high school students, dental students to PhD students in technical sciences, we could say that we had a real academic gathering that day. Academic and family, because each of them came accompanied by their parents, who, by being employees of Metalfer, provided them not only with scholarships, but also continuous support in building their future. It is unnecessary to talk about the pride, happiness and satisfaction of our employees, they could not hide the sparkle in their eyes. It’s a big thing for them, maybe the biggest thing, because it’s about the future of their children.
We, on the other hand, didn’t want to talk about the “difficult” topics of that day, grades, exams, we just wanted to get to know the “newbies” and hang out with familiar faces again. A bit shy, nervous, just like freshmen on an exam, they didn’t talk much at first, but in a pleasant atmosphere, strengthened by the presence of their parents, they finally posed happily for the photographer’s lens.
They were not the only ones satisfied, our satisfaction was even greater. That gleam in the eye of a proud parent, a proud worker, was a signal for us. A signal that we are doing the right thing and that our vision really makes sense.
Device for measuring the relative surface of the ribs fR
The development of technology has made it possible for certain segments of testing of finished products to use devices with highly sophisticated software and cameras. In the future, the company will use a machine for automatic determination of the relative surface area of the ribs ( fR ) in order to eliminate the measurement error.
With this device, the company will be sure that all measurements ( fR ) on dimensions from 4mm to 40mm of ribbed concrete steel, coiled coils and reinforcing mesh meet all the values prescribed by the SRPS EN 10080 standard and other standards depending on the needs of customers.
The company decided to purchase the RM 305 ECM Datensysteme device, with which all tests will be automated and operator error excluded. The device has the ability to measure two, three, four or six rows of ribs, as well as the ability to measure ribbing in cold-rolled concrete steel.
Metalfer Elevates Quality Through Metallographic Testing Laboratory
In light of the increasingly stringent requirements of industry standards and the aspiration for continuous advancement in finished product quality, Metalfer has extended its list of internal examinations to include metallographic testing of steel. Aligning with global trends in sample preparation, the company has equipped its laboratory with renowned equipment manufacturer Struers.
Metalfer has furnished its lab with all the necessary devices and machines, starting from a sample cutting machine that facilitates swift and easy embedding of cut specimens in a hot mounting press by providing a flawless cut on the sample. The mounted samples then proceed to the most crucial and demanding phase – grinding and polishing. The grinding and polishing device operates in a fully automated mode, leaving operators additional time to prepare subsequent samples.
For the actual examination of the samples, Metalfer has chosen a microscope from Leica. As one of the market leaders, Leica has gone a step further in terms of software and image processing quality. The Flexacam C3 camera with 12 MP is one of the fastest high-resolution cameras suitable for various types of tests. Different magnifications ranging from 5x to 1000x allow users, with the help of appropriate software, to precisely assess all necessary parameters crucial for giving a final quality rating.
