Testing Abilities

Indiana Tube Corporation provides measured assurance that our tube meets your requirements through a multi-level approach of process monitoring following established process control plans.

  • Qualified technicians continually monitor process parameters to assure consistent machine operation.
  • Trained inspectors sample and test on-line in order to provide immediate feedback should a key attribute move outside of statistical process control limits.
  • Variable data is entered into a Quality Assurance controlled SPC system for real time analysis.
  • Mechanical & other properties are tested in the Quality Assurance lab prior to final product release. Material test reports are issued with every shipment.

By utilizing our on-site testing equipment, tensile, yield, elongation, Rockwell and/or Vickers hardness, and microstructure analysis can be provided along with tube dimensional characteristics. All testing is performed using carefully calibrated and controlled instruments in accordance with written procedures.
