Importance of Quality Control in Precision Machining

Quality Control in Precision MachiningProducing precision parts for the aerospace/defense markets requires careful monitoring and control of your quality process. Intrex Aerospace recognizes the  importance of quality control in precision machining. We provide a quality assurance program that can deliver to our customers detailed real-time production information (part status) and critical measurements with supporting documentation. We integrate our quality system into our Epicor ERP/MRP, which monitors all phases of the manufacturing process from production to delivery of not only quality parts, but also the supporting documentation. We’ve made significant investments in our quality management software package in order to properly integrate with our Epicor system. This software allows us to track a range of quality control metrics, as well as provide CPk and SPCs, per our customers’ requirements. We can also use it to generate reports that allow our customers to see how we’ve improved quality and reduced waste throughout the production of their precision components.

Managing Special Process Outsourcing

We can monitor, measure, and manage every aspect of our system. We also manage the outsourcing of finishing processes (anodize, dry film lube, mag-particle inspection, passivation, powder coating). We manage material sourcing, production scheduling, special processing management, shipping, and documentation. We are familiar and experienced with FAIs and AOGs.

Our quality assurance process and demand management through the Epicor system allow us to maintain a PPM well below the industry standard, with an on-time delivery rate of 98+ %.
