Hydraulic & Engineering Instruments (HEICO) is a leading Indian manufacturer of testing instruments, equipment and machines for quality testing of materials used in civil engineering and industry in general. Such instruments are required in laboratories in manufacturing units and factories, as well as in testing service laboratories where the industry outsources its need for material testing services. Construction industry and civil engineering involves high level of safety concerns and hence quality control is of utmost importance. The building materials used in the construction industry for structural application, are mostly cement, concrete, iron and steel. The building blocks have to bear high loads for lifetime and therefore testing machines have to be very rigid, and consistent in their properties over long period of time. Due to the need of heavy loads to be tested, and to simulate real life conditions, the testing machines are generally powered by hydraulic power packs. The hydraulic power can be controlled more precisely, and hence it is possible to apply a variety of load patterns. Most common load patterns include constant load (also called as creep test), load rising at a predetermined rate (also called a pace rate)
Not only load testing, there are other matters related to preparation and processing of raw materials. Testing is recommended at various stages of the process so as to eliminate weaknesses as early as possible, thus reducing financial losses
Besides the material testing for building materials, civil engineering also involves study of soil and building of roads, embankments, ports, etc. Each of these fields involves specialization.
HEICO’s range of products involves all such related instruments and equipment used in laboratories of manufacturing, as well as service organizations not limited to civil engineering. HEICO also serves many other industries like Railways, Aeronautics, Automotive, Hard goods, Polymers, Rubber, Plastics, Steel, etc.
Material testing is a major subject of research. Plenty of educational institutions, engineering colleges, and industrial research centers also use HEICO products. Research delivers valuable inputs for development of technologies which benefit the society at large. The educational institutions lay high emphasis on details of technical specifications of the equipment. Their inspections and tests are very stringent and HEICO endeavours to constantly meet the requirements of reputed institutions.
Quality control at HEICO starts with inspection of raw materials and components. Tests and inspections are pre-defined for all the stages of manufacturing process, and utmost care is taken to eliminate chances of failure of final product. HEICO manufacturing adheres to global standards of testing of materials including ASTM, EN, ISO, DIN, JIS, and BIS, to name a few.
