Our Approach to Verification
November 21, 2019
With over Forty years of experience working with numerous industries, such as automotive, aerospace and space, we have found that even with the advent of “tube readers” and similar devices, it is imperative to have poka yoke fixturing on the shop floor. With the complexity of todays products being fit into tighter and tighter spaces, which requires bend on bend or deep bend situations, many of the new products are ineffective. Also, a hard tool can be utilized to not only verify a product but have the dual function of various in-process activites.
The envelope tolerance concept, whether in a full contour style of more open pin style format, is the best means to verify the part’s conformity to the print requirements. It allows virtually any person with a minimum amount of training to determine whether the part meets the print tolerance. When applied at each stage of production it assures the early elimination of defective parts.
Our fixtures are, in departure of the old methodology, CNC machined in one unified piece of material, which provides two benefits: the elimination of tolerance stackup, and a construction which is much more robust.
With numerous quality verifications built into our ISO9001:2015 process, we believe we can provide you with the best in-proces or final audit check fixtue available.
