With a quality system certified to ISO 9001:2008, MIL I45208, and ASME NCA3800, you know that quality is as important to us as it is to our customers; quality is our first concern, in fact. With quality as our primary driver, on-time delivery and competitive pricing fall into place.
With our order profile focusing primarily on small-run jobs, our world-class management information system is key to our success. We start each and every casting project with the body of knowledge that helped us complete the last job, whether the last time we encountered a given part was two weeks ago or 20 years.
We offer metallurgical testing facilities, including spectrographic analysis of all metals, tensile testing, Charpy testing, and microstructure analysis to meet all customer requirements. Also, our finishing and upgrading department includes non-destructive inspection personnel who are qualified to SNT-TC-1A Levels II and III for magnetic particle, liquid penetrant, ultrasound, and visual testing.
Anyone who knows production, though, understands that quality isn’t something that can be “tested in.” Our best-in-the-industry scrap rate is proof positive that our production staff is second to none.
