  • Hardness Testing Equipments.
  • Automatic Profile Measuring Systems.
  • Electrical Conductivity Meter.
  • Straightness Table.
  • Hardness Tester.

Prime Aluminium Industries performs continuous laboratory tests and undertakes quality assurance measures wherever necessary to subscribe and sustain the standards of excellence.

TOOL SHOP

The dies and tooling used to create the extrusions are manufactured in-house by PRIME in their Tool Shop, equipped with the latest manufacturing facilities like Wirecut, CNC Milling, CNC Machining Centre and Spark Erosion Machine. Imported heat resistant H-13 grade die Steel is used to make the dies and toolings, which ensures uniform hardness after heat treatment. This is followed by surface treatment that makes the exterior wear resistant and therefore, close dimensional tolerance is maintained.

BRANDING

The proprietary “Prime Aluminium” Logo along with the four digit lot number imprinted on all the architectural and heavier sections ensures traceability and individual product identity. Aging of the products is done at a specific temperature for a certain time in air circulated ovens. Subsequently, the hardness of the products is tested using portable Webster and Barcole Testers.

PACKING

Once the Quality Assurance Dept. gives clearance, the products are sent through a Packing Conveyor that ensures spiral wrapping with polythene film, weighing, packing, strapping and finally packaging them. The modes of packing are customized as per the customer’s requirements and the entire packaging process is done with the full care.
