Industrial parts development involves a design, manufacturing and testing process to create a part or set of parts that meets the specific requirements of a product or system. The steps to follow in the development of industrial parts are the following:

Analisys of requirements:Before beginning design, it is important to understand the technical, functional and performance requirements that the part must meet.

Conceptual design:At this stage, basic drawings and models of the part are created or provided, considering specific requirements and design restrictions.

Engineering analysis:In this phase, a detailed analysis of the part is carried out to evaluate its performance, durability and safety. Simulation and modeling tools can be used to evaluate the part before manufacturing.

Final design:Finally, a detailed and specific design of the part is created, including tolerances, material specifications and assembly details.

Manufacturing:Once the design has been completed, the part is manufactured following detailed drawings and specifications. This may include modeling, casting, machining, etc. processes.

Testing and validation:Before sending the part to the customer, it is important to perform tests to verify its compliance with specific requirements and ensure its quality and safety.

These processes can vary based on the complexity of the part and specific needs, but in general, the goal is to produce a high-quality part that meets requirements and is durable and safe in its application.

Quality control is a set of processes and initiatives that guarantee compliance with the predefined requirements and designs of the products to ensure their efficiency and, at the same time, detect failures or problems in production.
Metrology directly affects the efficiency of a production process, the quality of the products and their compliance with the different national or international regulations that control the entry of consumer products into different markets.



Non-destructive testing used to detect and identify surface and subsurface discontinuities in ferromagnetic materials.

This method is based on the alteration suffered by a magnetic field induced in a ferromagnetic material, by finding discontinuities oriented perpendicular to the flow lines of said field.

The magnetic field induced in the piece is distorted by the discontinuities present in the material, producing leakage fields that generate new magnetic poles. These distortions attract the finely divided magnetic particles that are applied to the test surface. The accumulation of these particles will be indicative of the existence of a discontinuity.


  • Detection of surface and subsurface discontinuities in ferromagnetic materials.

  • Detection of surface and subsurface discontinuities in welds of ferromagnetic materials.

  • Characterization of materials and their properties.



Non-destructive testing used to detect and locate discontinuities throughout the volume of a part.

Using an ultrasonic probe, which transforms electrical energy into mechanical energy and vice versa, an ultrasonic beam with a known acoustic pressure, frequency and initial energy is induced in the material to be inspected, which propagates through the material.

This sound wave can undergo variations and even be completely reflected due to heterogeneities of any type in the material tested. This acoustic energy is captured by the same or another probe that transforms the mechanical energy into electrical energy, which through the receiver of the ultrasonic equipment is displayed on a screen in the form of an oscillogram. These signals can be analyzed, thus obtaining a large amount of information about the detected discontinuity: location, size, orientation, composition.


  • Detection of discontinuities in metallic materials

  • Detection of discontinuities in welds

  • Characterization of materials and physical properties of these

  • Detection and sizing of delaminations in monolithic composite materials

  • Detachment detection in composite sandwich structures

  • Thickness measurement

  • Corrosion detection


Industrial Radiography (RT) uses X-rays or gamma radiation to create images that show hidden defects within the material.

This technology is widely used in the industry for the inspection and control of welds, cast, forged, rolled, machined parts, pressure vessels, pipes, etc. Industrial radiography is a non-destructive test, it practically does not require preparation of the surface to be tested and allows the testing of any type of material.

Industrial radiography is used to identify whether internal or external discontinuities exist in industrial components. In this way, it is possible to analyze in depth whether a part is in ideal conditions for its use and operation.

Like other Non-Destructive Tests, industrial radiography does not cause any type of change or permanent damage to the analyzed part. Something it shares in common with tests such as ultrasonic inspection or magnetic particle inspection.


Liquid penetrant inspection is used to detect and identify discontinuities present on the surface of the materials examined, which may lead to future material failures. It is generally used in non-ferrous alloys, although it can also be used for the inspection of ferrous materials when magnetic particle inspection is difficult to apply.

Liquid penetrant testing is performed by applying a liquid penetrant dye to the surface of the material. The liquid is introduced by capillarity into the defective areas of the material surface. It is then drawn to the surface, allowing defects to be detected using ultraviolet light or other methods, depending on the type of liquid and dye used.


Main advantages:

  • It has a high degree of sensitivity, since it allows small discontinuities to be detected.

  • Applicable on a wide variety of non-porous materials.

  • It can be made in materials with large volume and surface area.

  • Suitable for parts with complex shapes.

  • It is a low-cost test.

In short, liquid penetrant testing is a non-destructive, economical and effective method, applicable to a wide range of industrial materials and really useful when identifying failures.

Iron Welding

In order to offer a piece with an optimal level of quality for our clients, our technical team has had to exhaustively audit foundries in various countries to classify and catalog them according to the qualities of the materials offered.

These audits assure us of acceptable parts at origin and avoid considerable losses of time in subsequent processes, being able to provide clients with tight delivery times.

The machining of cast parts allows for cost reduction in the transformation process itself by chip removal. This saves process time and reduces waste of raw materials.

Also, depending on the type of casting used, interesting mechanical properties are achieved that would not otherwise be possible to achieve.

Among the main advantages of machining parts from cast iron we have:

  • Raw material savings

Above all, in complex pieces with irregular geometries. In these pieces, working from a cast preform avoids using large formats of material.

  • Savings on machining costs

For the same reason as above, less material removal leads to less machining time, less tool wear and, therefore, less machining cost, improving precision and quality.

  • Increased parts availability

By maintaining a stock of castings, machining time is shorter, consequently increasing the availability of parts.

ATECSE3D has the collaboration, involvement and cooperation of large machining companies with a track record and experience behind them so that their product meets the most restrictive quality standards in time and passes our exhaustive tests before being delivered.
