Programming and Production Planning
Programming and production planning is under the direction of experienced Manufacturing Engineers. Our programming staff uses the Intercim AutoPro programming system. This advanced system is supported by high resolution full color graphics and features both screen and plotter translation of part configuration and machine tool movement and positioning.
All programs and edits are plotted and proven prior to release for actual machine prove-out, saving both production down time and material waste.
Detailed work orders which include purchasing requirements and full manufacturing and inspection process controls and documents are prepared and approved by both Engineering and Quality Control prior to production release.
All materials are serialized and documented for full materials traceability.
All completed goods are serialized and/or are batch traceable to all inspection documentation.
Uniform Practices and Procedures
Our employees participate in a program of strictly regulated written shop standards and procedures that includes shop cleanliness and safety programs.
