Every member of the team strives to achieve defect-free production. All of our processes are set up to ensure quality, stability and repeatability: we carry out process monitoring and quality control audits at every stage of manufacture to ensure consistent standards throughout casting.
We pride ourselves on our accreditations:-
Customer quality approvals are just as crucial, and our quality team ensures we achieve – and frequently exceed – expectations. Certificates of Conformity, including CMM and x-ray reports, can be provided when castings are despatched.
We have an extensive range of quality tools at our disposal, including 3D x-ray, CNC-controlled CMM, aluminium melt analysis and an array of traditional gauging measurement technologies.
Thorough, accurate inspection is of paramount importance. Our quality team has two large CNC coordinate measuring machines and two Faro measuring arms to check dimensional tolerances.
Further analysis can be carried out using 3D x-ray and dye penetrant. Castings are checked at the start of the production and during production.
We compare dimensions and surface finishes against the data stored on our database. Dies and patterns are also checked to make sure they meet the tolerances required.
Every member of the Sarginsons team takes pride in being accountable for the quality of the components we produce.
Well before production begins, our Technical and Quality Assurance Teams work with you to produce a process plan. In the automotive industry this leads to a Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) programme.
Process monitoring and quality control audits take place at every stage of manufacture to ensure consistent standards are maintained. Within our laboratory, we are able to fully validate and certificate mechanical properties using our in-house Shimadzu testing rig, and detailed material analysis reports are available using our Hyscan hydrogen analyzer, IDECO thermo-analyzer and MH density tester.
