Quality control at every stage
Quality control is a critical element of every process at Tooling Dynamics. From the arrival of raw materials at our dock to the delivery of finished parts to our customers, our quality control department is an essential participant at all stages in metal stamping engineering and production.
Customers' specifications and dimensions are constantly tracked and monitored throughout the production process. To enhance our inspection capabilities, we use a number of quality control programs such as Statistical Process Control (SPC) and chart PPKs and CPKs for critical dimensions.
All customers receive a first article inspection report (on all new programs), a copy of our production inspection plan, and documented workmanship specifications on each part with visual aids available upon request for your retention.
Quality control qualifications at-a-glance
- ISO 9001:2008 registered since January 2004, a yearly audit for ISO qualification is maintained through QMI Management Systems Registration.
- Compliant with TS 16949 Automotive Specification.
- Several team members have been trained in Six Sigma and six employees have Green Belt quality designations.
- 6 Keyence Vision Systems, 9 PPT on-line Vision Systems, and 4 OGP SmartScopes with laser Depth capabilities.
Superior equipment means superior quality
Nine On-Line PPT Vision Systems improve our inspection capabilities. By having on-line systems attached to the production presses you get an immediate go or no go inspection as you run. This greatly reduces inspection time, eliminates the chance for human error, and reduces material waste.
Our OGP Smart Scopes also streamline the quality inspection process by having pre-programmed specifications entered so the inspection of your parts is handled quickly, efficiently, and with fewer human error factors. Upon inspection, data from our Smart Scopes can be easily transmitted to our customers for review and statistical analysis of data can be provided through the OGP vision systems.
