Certifications are verified routinely to ensure conformity to the specified requirements. At each stage of manufacturing, dimensional accuracies are checked against the drawing, using advanced, calibrated measuring instruments. All critical and major part characteristics are inspected 100%. Non destructive testing is also performed on-site, where certified personnel perform both fluorescent penetrant inspection and magnetic particle inspection to design specifications.
We have consistent dialogue with our Quality Assurance Representatives (QAR) from Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) for our defense product and with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for our civil aviation product. We perform a rigorous First Article Test (FAT) and Production Lot Test (PLT) when customers require it, for acceptance at source or destination.
