Engcon invest millions in new test facilities - increasing quality and safety

Engcon, the world leading manufacturer of tiltrotators for excavators, has invested in two automated test facilities at its factory in Strömsund, Sweden. The investment is the latest step in the company’s increased commitment to improving product quality and safety in recent years. All Engcon tiltrotators will be tested to the max at these facilities before delivery to the customer.

The development of these new test stations is a collaboration between Engcon, Electrum, which developed the computer software used for testing, and hydraulic supplier Specma which supplied all the components.

“Every tiltrotator we make will be tested on this new automatic facility, that doesn’t need a human operator. This means none of the testing is dependent on staff being available and that’s a big benefit”, says Håkan Näsström, Test Manager at Engcon.

Extensive testing for increased quality

All functions are tested to their limits. This is done to ensure full mobility without the risk of damaging hoses. The hydraulics are also put under maximum load to ensure that any leaks are detected. The control system and extra functions are also tested.

“All test data is stored in a database and linked to the respective tiltrotator being tested. This gives us a unique insight into each machine and excellent quality control should a detailed follow-up be required if there are any discrepancies”, says Mats Erik Wiktorsson, Quality Manager for the Engcon Group.

Engcon is quality certified in accordance with ISO 9001:2015, which covers everything from how the company handles its clients, documentation, processes and follow-up to pure product quality. In addition, Engcon's activities hold environmental certification in accordance with ISO 14001:2015.

“These certifications are essential to our credibility. Our quality processes ensure we deliver excellent product efficiency and quality that ultimately enhance customer profitability”, Mats Erik Wiktorsson concludes.
