Materials and Products
World Class Manufacturing produces machined parts and assemblies to our customer's specifications with high precision needs such as .0004 tolerances and automotive cosmetics. Success in the field of precision machining requires a certain uniqueness. Our commitment to total customer service is "system oriented", emphasizing a long-term relationship wherein open communications result in continuous improvements in engineering, manufacturing processes, quality conformance, and bottom line costing. Our customer becomes part of our team right from the start of the quote, working directly with our engineering, processing, tooling and quality staff to clearly establish requirements and optimal procedures. We emphasize prevention of problems, not repair.
We work with our customers to create a true partnership and look at total cost and benefits such as shortened lead times by working with us as their "complete" supplier. Our approach to the manufacturing process is to create a flow-through structure, starting with the arrangement of a "cell", so all operations carried out on the part are completed in one handling, with no queuing or transfer to another piece of equipment. In many cases we can also perform additional processes such as pressing bearings as part of the cell function. We also continually acquire technologically advanced equipment with higher levels of efficiency. Included in our capabilities is the design and building of tools and fixtures on-site, completely within our control. We include in our scope of operations assemblies, sub-assemblies, and families of parts. We can also arrange the procurement of raw materials and castings, and contract for outside finishing services such as heat-treat, plating, welding and painting.
We achieved registration to ISO 9001-2000 standards and requirements in November of 2002. Our quality department is proficient in implementing and interpreting Statistical Process Control (SPC), preparing control plans, gage R&R studies, process capability studies, production part approval process (PPAP), failure mode & effects (FMEA), and in preparing sample layout reports. Our key Quality Engineers are also certified through the American Society of Quality Control.
Because of the rapidly changing environment in our industry, such as high-speed machining, vacuum work holding, tooling insert improvements, geometric tolerances, statistical data requirements, and precision metrology, we conduct ongoing operator training both in-house and at training centers. We train the production crew in how to be constructively critical of their work quality, minimize waste of all kinds, and strive for constant improvements.
