Inspection

We’re ISO 9001:2015 accredited and have been since 1994, but we don’t stop there. We are committed to maintaining exceptional quality standards throughout all areas of manufacture, with a meticulous quality assurance team and full material traceability where needed. Our philosophy of continuous improvement underpins every aspect of the business. As part of this, we live and breathe the principles of Lean Six Sigma to maximise our efficiencies.

Overview

Quality Assurance

Our quality assurance systems have been audited and approved by companies such as BAE Systems, Pearson, BT and 3M and comply with the stringent quality control requirements of MOD, Rail and Underground companies. We rigorously test and inspect to BS standards and can provide the appropriate testing and product documentation as required for your product, such as FAIR (First Article Inspection Report) and ISIR (Initial Sample Inspection Report).

We have over 60 approved welding procedures within our organisation, tested to EN ISO 15614-1:2004, with many of our skilled staff coded to these standards for both aluminium and steel. These are third party tested in accordance with EN ISO 9606. In addition, members of our team are qualified to CSWIP 3.0 certified for visual weld inspection. The CSWIP Welding Inspector certification is the most widely used scheme within the industry to ensure compliance of welded products and structures.

Inspection Tools

We utilise a range of product testing and inspection equipment to ensure we meet our customer and industry standards and specifications, including:

FaroArm® – a portable coordinate measuring machine (PCMM) which allows us to easy verify product quality by performing 3D inspections, tool certifications, CAD comparison, dimensional analysis and reverse engineering. Accompanying this is our Faro Laser Scanner, enabling us to capture fast and accurate measurements of complex objects for use within the manufacture of our products.

Virtek® LaserQC® 3D Scanner – a rapid inspection system that uses lasers to measure the accuracy of two-dimensional parts, to tolerances within 0.05mm. This is used to assess and verify conformance of first-off lasered and punched components; as well as allowing us to verify the quality of bought-in items from our supply chain.

Process Capability and Control

Process capability studies can be performed by our Quality Department to ensure that our customers are receiving superior, professional and reproducible products. We help sustain these process capabilities by using Standard Process Controls, mapping and measuring parts against set specifications. Any abnormalities are addressed by root cause analysis to prevent further occurrences.
