The quality management system is certified by TÜV Nederland according to ISO 9001. Click here for the valid certificate.
To assure the process quality, Quality checks are performed at different stages:
– Production checks during molding process
– Periodical inspection of the sand quality
– Temperature check of the melt
– Thermal analysis of the melt
– Spectrometer analysis of the melt
On customer request we will perform following inspections:
– Ultrasonic inspection
– Surface crack test
– Hardness measurement
Specific properties such as mechanical and chemical properties are performed by an external NKO-certified laboratory.

To simulate complex castings, Geraedts Iron Foundry has been using Magmasoft casting simulation software for a number of years. By using this software we can assess the castability and manufacturability of a design. This allows us to apply improvements in our production process in advance
