Quality is always on our mind, even in the very early stages of product and process development. That is why quality management forms an integral part of our development organization and our company as a whole. It is performed throughout the entire product lifecycle and includes quality planning, initial sampling, coordinate measuring techniques, gage management and complaints management. We consistently use proven quality management techniques derived from the automotive sector, including maturity level assurance (Reifegradabsicherung, RGA), product and process approval processes (PPAP), failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) and Automotive SPICE (A-SPICE). This way we ensure that our customers benefit from the highest quality and service standards.
Our measurement laboratory in Ergersheim measures individual parts, component assemblies and complete systems made from a wide variety of materials using equipment such as portable measuring arms or 3D coordinate measuring machines. The goal is a target/actual comparison of the parts or systems and a CAD model or drawing, or a before-and-after comparison of components.
The measuring arm uses optical, laser-detection or scanning technology achieving a precision to one-hundredth of a millimeter, with or without CAD. These measurements can be performed directly in production. Using a 3D coordinate measuring machine in a special climate-controlled room, we achieve even higher precision (to one-thousandth of a millimeter).
