Quality control is conducted at two levels and is adapted to the individual needs of customers. The first stage of control is shop-level inspection at the individual tools. The technical control department is independent from manufacturing. It represents the second stage of control, and also defines the conditions for measurements conducted in the first stage. Measurement conditions are defined in the measurement plan that determines the specific dimensions to measure, the frequency of measurements, specific gauges to use, and how records are maintained.
The Technical Control department, led by the Quality Manager, defines the measurement plans, documentation for initial sampling, or the entire set of documents required per specific requests. Typical requirements include 3D measurement equipment reports and the traceability of production and measurement data. All measurements are recorded using standard gauges and electronic data transmission to a PC, which ensures that no errors occur when manually entering values.
Statistical assessment of measurement data (Cpk, Cmk) has become a more common request. Our new Q-STAT and Q-DAS software from Hexagon meets this very purpose. A proven measurement method is to compare the 3D model with the real-life product and subsequent graphical assessment.
Good quality machining would not exist or be able to produce quality products without quality measurements. That is why we place so much emphasis on quality management. We have held the ISO 9000 quality management certificate since 2003.
TRIXXON mobile CNC milling machine for on-site machine work
Our company is the proud manufacturer of the TRIXXON MM300 mobile milling machine. Numerous external collaborators specialising in construction, design and electronics contributed to its development.
Heat treatment and surface finishing
Heat treatment and surface finishing are common requirements for a range of mechanical parts. Our efforts to provide our customers with comprehensive services are also evident in this particular area.
The perfect assessment and alignment of a specific volume of technical information is the secret to the automated manufacturing of flawless components. Suitable technical equipment with the necessary parameters is the primary prerequisite.
CETA tester-based differential pressure leak testing
Leak testing is a common post-machining step stipulated on technical prints for aluminium castings. We first encountered this type of specification when machining a double housing for a Bosch electric traction motor, which was designed for applications in electric vehicles.
