Material Testings



100% Ultrasonic Testing of internal defects

Ultrasonic testing is most common non destructive testing method performed on materials.The material is to be testing does not need to be cut or exposed to damaging chemicals.It is a technique used to detect internal cracks/defects within the product/material i.e steel bars by sending short wavelength sound waves of high and low frequency through the test material.There are no health hazards associated with it.This test ensures that bars are free from any internal defects.

Hydrogen/Oxygen / Nitrogen Testing thru LECO analyzer

LECO Combustion Analysis is used to detect low levels of carbon, sulfur, nitrogen, oxygen and hydrogen (from .0002 to .05 percent, depending upon the sample type).

Optical Emission Spectrometers

Instrument that is used to determine the chemical composition of elements present in a sample by using the intensity of light emitted from a arc, or spark at a particular wavelength to determine the quantity of an element in a sample.It is used to identify the various elements i.e C,Si,Mn,P,S,Cr,Mo,Ni,Cu etc.

The wavelength of the spectral lines gives the identity of the element while the intensity of the emitted light is directly proportional to the number of atoms of the element.

Carbon Apparatus

Apparatus used to detect the amount of carbon present in steels.

Radiation Servo Meter

Radiation Survey meters are portable radiation detection and measurement instrument for radioactive contamination ,used to identify the cobalt isotopes. It is the most familiar hand held radiation measuring device.

Bar Straightness Testing

Surface Roughness Testing

Bars out-of-roundness testing

Material Identification Testing through mobile handheld spectrometers

Portable Spectrometer is a device used for spectroscopic analysis of elemental composition of material to identify or differentiate them.

Dear Sir/Ma’am,

At the moment we are all dealing with the spread, consequences and the measures taken by our respective governments to contain and fight back against the Corona Virus. We as Ambica, feel it is our duty to contribute towards such efforts.

From today, i.e. 23rd march 2020, we are observing the lockdown orders issued by the respective state governments. We have therefore taken several measures  within our organization that have an impact on the way we work until 31st of March 2020.

The following are the changes that have been initiated by our management:

  1. Availability of Our Production:
    • All our production sites shall remain non-operational until the 25th of March 2020. It may then continue with limited possibilities after the 25th of March 2020. We shall send out updates as the situation develops.
    • Material movement is going to be restricted and any urgent matters will have to be dealt with on a case to basis in a creative manner.
  2. Availability of Our Sales Department:
    • Our Sales team shall not be available for in-person visits, however, shall continue to be operational from home and are always reachable at their respective email addresses and phone numbers.
    • Any and every query you may have regarding your orders cna be sent to your respective account managers.

We regret the inconvenience caused and hope that we are able to resume full operations once it is safe to do so.

We ask and trust your understanding and hope that with these measures we have done the best we can do to make a proper contribution to limiting the further spread of the Corona Virus.
