Control

High level of requirement

Control Control Control Control Control




We use sophisticated machines to ensure control operations. Many controls are performed in every stage of the production to meet our customer’s quality requirements.

Diameters, lengths, heights, concentricity, dimensions, roundness, hardness, etc.. ... Our various monitoring tools coupled to powerful softwares can detect the slightest non-conformity on every part...

Methodical checks :

- Start of production approval with automatic control machine.
- Cold forming and threading processes under electronic monitoring with sensors analyzing forming stations. The machine is immediately stopped in case of process dysfunction.
- Same checking for each control during production, on the same control machine used for start of production.

Low PPM required?

A 100% optical sorting is possible on request.


Traceability

Efficient and reactive system

We have set an elaborated system to automatically insure traceability of each part leaving our plant.

Indeed, we are able to present material quality certificates almost instantly. Chemical analysis of the material used is filled in our own computer software to ensure compliance.

Heat number, number of boots and shade are registered on an internal document that follows each parts batch throughout the manufacturing process.

From the raw material receipt to the delivery issue, tracking is total.

Our optical sorting machines can ensure a 100% sorting of your parts to reach the highest conformity rate.

Length, diameters, concentricity, radius, threads, drills can be checked with high precision.

Acquisition of these sorting machines is part of a strong quality approach. Customer satisfaction remains our top priority.




Certifications

Our quality system meets its origins in the 50’s. That’s part of our aerospace legacy. Despite of its efficiency, we never stopped to improve and we finally get the ISO 9001 certification.

To formalize our 30 years experience in the automotive business, we get the ISO TS/16949 v.2009 certification in 2010.

In addition, we decided to set an environmental management system based on ISO 14001 including a strict chemical substances control. We reached the «green procurement standard» certification since 2011.

Continuous improvement





Continous improvement (or Kaizen) is one of the keypoint to progress. Regular small changes enable us to improve our processes in the long term.

This is a working way that we share with our whole staff.
