Quality Control

Continuous improvement process that improves customer satisfaction and eliminates waste
Understand the quality expectations of our customers, thereby improving customer satisfaction
Deliver defect-free products to our customers on time
Continually train our employees in quality related matters
Develop quality improvement plans with our key customers and suppliers
When we receive your order, a barcoded shop card featuring digital images is created, and all pertinent details are programmed into our Manufacturing Process Control system. As your order progresses through our shop, each department has detailed instructions to ensure that your parts are made to the proper specifications.
This system documents each step in the casting process, allowing us to determine the exact cost for each part and pass the savings on to you.
Our Hartley Sand Control system enables us to regulate the characteristics of the sand used in the molding process.
We utilize advanced technologies to see that you receive what you ordered. Spectrometer analysis and automatic nodularity testing ensure conformance to your specification and traceability by part number, heat code, and ladle. Brinell testing verifies hardness per specifications.
A Melt Analysis module allows us to keep detailed records of the chemical and physical properties of the metal we pour.
Computer tracking of in-house scrap promotes pro-active continuous improvement to meet quality requirements.
A special Corrective Action module in our manufacturing software package gives us the capability of following through on problems to see that they are resolved promptly and efficiently.
Our cutting edge production scheduling program module allows us to deliver both cast and machined parts on-time.
The bar-code order tracking system we use tells us within seconds where your order is in either the casting or machining divisions. This allows us to meet promised delivery dates, and you to schedule your production runs with the assurance that your castings will arrive on time, eliminating idle machines and costly downtime.

Metalcasting Outlook

North American foundry and diecasting managers and decisionmakers give the final word on industry conditions today — and the first word on their expectations for metalcasting growth and development in the coming year. Metalcasting is not an ordinary industrial market: it is sensitive to all types of economic variables (raw materials, energy, labor) as well […]

Next for Metal 3DP?

Industrial-scale metal additive manufacturing has not brought the predicted calamity for traditional manufacturers – but the effects deserve a closer look. The emergence of industrial additive manufacturing in the past decade has not been the death blow to “traditional” industrial sectors, as predicted by AM cheerleaders from the high-tech and capital markets, but nor has […]
