Technical Procedures & Support

Highly qualified, degreed personnel, supported by state-of-the-art computer and laboratory equipment, adhere to strategies of ISO-9001:2000 for quality program implementation. This includes Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP), Process Control Planning, and the seven phases of Statistical Process Control (SPC):
  • Process Charting to identify materials and steps
  • Ishikawa Diagram to identify all factors that influence the process
  • Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) to rate potential problems and the seriousness of each
  • Critical Factor Identification to analyze the FMEA results
  • Evaluation Testing
  • Shewhart Charting, which allows advance operator control and warning
  • Closing the Loop to identify preventive steps and ensure quality

In addition to SPC, five other quality-assurance techniques are employed:

  • X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (XRF) - PPM level/99.9% composition level
  • Plasma Emission Spectroscopy (ICP) - PPM level/10% composition level
  • Quantitative Metallography
  • Electron Microscopy
  • Process Emulation employing laboratory-scale induction and resistance furnaces
