Quality manual for our potential and existing suppliers

Springs

   One of our priority businesses is the suspension springs. Our equipment, tooling, technology and raw materials fully comply with western analogues. At this moment there are two variants of springs, i.e. Standard and Premium quality.
Standard – the products fully correspond to the originals in terms of their functional properties. They pass all endurance and chemical tests and are provided with the quality certificate. The proper approach towards creating a technological process, reduced logistics costs and time optimisation eventually results in delivering the marketable product with unbeatable set of characteristics, while maintaining all physical and chemical properties at a high level.
Premium – unique product, which is not only inferior in properties to top foreign brands, but, often highly exceeds them in many aspects. The European steel is used as a raw material supplied directly from manufacturer without any intermediaries. This class of springs is produced using a number of Russia-unique technologies, allowing to receive very high technical, physical and performance characteristics of the final product.

Salt spray test

750 hours in salt spray chamber with the prospect of improvement up to 1000 hours

tests

Tests with different loads that simulate the hardest operating conditions

Best price

Business strategy based on lean manufacturing tools

Modern quality control
