Welding

Cheval utilizes many types of welding, including robotic lines for MIG, and manual stations for hand TIG, Spot and CD stud welding.

CNC Laser Cutting and Punching

CNC Laser Cutting and Punching Machines add flexibility to our manufacturing capability. Cheval uses the latest CNC equipment for both short run batches and mass production. 

CNC Bending

High precision and consistency are achieved using CNC bending Machines and automated panel benders.

Power Press Machines

Cheval utilizes many types of welding, including robotic lines for MIG, and manual stations for hand TIG, Spot and CD stud welding.

Electro-Static Powder
Coating Line

We do all our own Powder Coating in house. Our lines utilize an environmentally friendly 5 stage Iron Phosphate pre-treatment with de-ionized water rinse. A rigorous system of QA inspections checks verifies the correct finish. Our in house corrosion lab tests every paint batch to 500 hours salt spray test under ASTM-D610-01 and ASTM-B117

Electroplating Factory

The 1,125 square meter factory currently consists of Zinc Barrel Plating and Zinc Rack Plating lines which are capable of plating parts as small as 1 mm-diameter up to 2,200 mm-long parts. The completely automatic line ensures quality and consistent results through a process that takes around 1 hour depending on the particular parts being plated. And in following our strict internal environmental standards, water and air treatment are strictly implemented and monitored.

Mechanical Assembly, Integration and Packaging

Cheval can improve your margins by providing assembly and integration for your products. We offer mechanical assembly, sub assembly integration and finished product packaging, all to your specifications. This can reduce the time you need to invest to get your product to market. We export to all corners of the world and our customer service is experienced in getting the products where you want them.

Quality Assurance and Testing

                 Cheval firmly believes that our products should exceed our clients expectations. To achieve this goal, we have developed rigorous testing and quality assurance systems. We undergo regular audits from third party inspectors, but more importantly, by our clients and consistently achieve excellent results.

           All three of our facilities are certified to ISO 9001:2015 and 14001:2015 and we use RoHS compliant materials. Standard paint inspection process uses photo spectrometer reading to measure color, (L.a.b.), gloss meter, thickness meter, M.E.K. ruboff tests, cross hatch adhesion, impact and hardness tests.

          Testing is critical to ongoing production and product development. In addition to standard UL 2416 test requirements. Cheval has developed and performs more rigorous in house tests such as:

  • Mechanical Load tests for enclosures: staic, dynamic, drop and tilt.
  • Mechanical Load tests for casters, both static and dynamic.
  • Electric conductivity and high pot testing.
  • Salt spray chamber to verify paint integrity.

          We work with third party facilities such as Met Labs and UL, to provide certificates per client request.

Mechanical

Cheval tests the load (weight bearing) capacity of all our products. These tests are designed to determine upper limits to the amount of weight a particular product can safely and functionally support. We use both third party (UL) standards plus have developed our own enhanced tests to ensure your safety and product quality.

Dynamic tests will physically move the rack some distance while under load. Depending on the requirements, specific obstacles may or may not be part of the rolling test. Client speific requirements can be performed as well. 

 

Custom desigend rig allows for multiple fores to be exerted on the sample while ensuring operater safety,

Caster Testing Method

Cheval’s custom built caster testing machine allows us to set the weight, speed and duration for dynamic testing. A series of profiles can be added to simulate thresholds and other obstacles,

Lab Testing

We have a corrosion lab equipped with a salt spray chamber for testing painted panels from every production batch. The panels are placed in the chamber and exposed for 500 hours. Then the panels are inspected according to ASTM-D610-01 and ASTM-B117. Adhesion, impact, hardness and curing are also tested in the lab.

Our materials lab tests tensile strength, hardness and deformation properties of components and materials.
