Quality

Machine Inc.  Means Dependable Quality

AS9100C ISO 9001:2008/ FAA-PMA

  • Continuous Improvement: We have implemented numerous controls to prevent process errors that lead to rejects, allowing us to consistently deliver high quality machined parts.
  • In-process Quality Controls: Reduce unwanted variation resulting in less waste, scrap and reworks all contributing to the bottom line and reducing cost to our customers.
  • Informational Pipeline: Actionable information to personnel, allowing them to detect, correct, and minimize process variation in real time.
  • Customer Satisfaction: Strict attention to our machining processes assure consistent, high-quality parts, minimize rejects and enables us to provide comprehensive quality reports to our customers.
  • Meet regulatory requirements through documentation control: Comprehensive documentation enables audit-ability across our processes, and enables us to cost-effectively meet ISO, TS, FDA and USDA requirements.

In a machining environment, quality means fewer customer rejects which translates to on-time deliveries and increased customer satisfaction.  Process improvements also eliminate waste, improve flow and enhance workplace safety, all contributing to the bottom line.

With AS9100 Registration and FAA-PMA approval we adhere to  ANSI Y14.5 in our quality system.  GMPs are guidelines that outline the aspects of production and testing that can impact the quality of machined parts.

Although there are a number of them, all guidelines follow a few basic principles.

  • Machining processes are clearly defined and controlled. All critical processes are validated to ensure consistency and compliance with specifications.
  • Machining processes are controlled, and any changes to the process are evaluated and documented.
  • Instructions and procedures are written in clear and unambiguous language.)
  • Operators are trained to carry out and document procedures.
  • Records are made, manually or by instruments during machining that demonstrate that all the steps required by the defined procedures and instructions were taken and documented.
  • Records of a machined part that enable the complete history of a batch to be traced are retained in a comprehensible and accessible form.

Conflict Free Metals Policy

Machine Inc. supports the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the Electronic Industry Citizen Coalition, Incorporated and the Global e-Sustainability Initiative with respect to Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative for sourcing Tungsten raw materials from socially and environmentally responsible suppliers.

The Machine Inc. Conflict Metals Policy applies broadly to Machine Inc. products and Machine Inc. suppliers that directly support Machine Inc. product manufacturing.  The known sources of material of concern include but may not be limited to tantalum, tungsten, tin and gold.

Although Machine Inc. cannot fully verify the source of tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold used in the supply chain, we are committed to purchasing materials from environmentally and socially responsible suppliers.

Machine Inc. will support industry trade groups, suppliers and customers in establishment of a verifiable supply chain that draws materials from conflict free mines.

Machine Inc. does not use Tantalum, Tungsten, Tin or Gold in its current processes.
