The closed-die forging process – Quality Standards
As a company that has been around for over 100 years, we have worked on key principles which have made us a success. One of those principles which hold a great deal of merit is quality. Therefore we put a large amount of effort into making sure each forged part is to the highest of standards.
All parts need to be to the exact specifications for them to be suitable for their requirements.
How do we achieve such high levels of quality throughout the process?
To achieve AS9100 compliance we need to have a high level of quality along with consistency on all forged parts. To be able to reach those levels we put a large amount of resources into system control and carry out a range of inspections.
Each part is controlled by using a batch card which indicate every process the part has to go through; this allows us to monitor each part of the journey. This also allows us to easily identify any issues and respond accordingly along the way. It prevents us wasting time by allowing unsuitable products to filter through to other stages.
Investing in the latest technology also helps make the parts more accurate as they are less prone to defects.
