We are ISO 9001: 2008 UKAS certified which is the bedrock of our business, this controls all operating procedures from start to finish.
To help manage the standard we installed an MRP system supplied by Prospec Systems Ltd called Datatrack; within the system we produce quotations, works orders, purchase orders, delivery notes, invoices and management reports all at our finger tips, full traceability is standard not a special event.
On the shop floor we only use the best measuring equipment available which is why we use Mitutoyo and Baty as our primary suppliers for all our Metrology equipment. All our instruments are digital so there is no possibility of misreading and they give us a very high degree of accuracy.
We perform a first article inspection report (F.A.I.R.) for every set up which checks all the features on the drawing and confirms material specification with the material certificate. During manufacture the in process checks monitor critical features periodically using a 2 tray system which prevents contamination if an out of limit situation occurs. Once the components have been machined they are then washed gently in our aqueous washing machine to remove swarf and oil, once this is complete they are ready for a final inspection prior to dispatching to the Customer. The whole process has been mapped out by our robust quality management sytem ISO 9001: 2008.
