The quality of Kugler BIMETAL parts is guaranteed by stringent and regular testing:

Of the steels

  • Ultrasonic and micrographic tests before casting
  • Chemical analysis
  • Mechanical characteristics after casting.


Of the Tokat bronzes

  • Chemical and micrographic analyses
  • Mechanical characteristics


Of the bronze/steel interface

The perfect quality of the bond is tested 100% by ultrasonic testing for all verifiable surfaces, thus giving the customer an optimum guarantee. If desired, parts can be tested to destruction: compression, bending, tensile and cohesion tests are available.

Independently of the production laboratory, tribological tests are regularly carried out to ascertain the parts’ behaviour under well-defined conditions. This enables us to assist customers in the choice of Tokat alloy and to offer advice on their specific problems.
