World-Class Quality Control Systems
At Goudsmit UK, we aim to deliver products with zero defects. To make this possible, we have successfully achieved the ISO 9001 and AS 9120B certifications. Our quality systems are the backbone of our manufacturing services and have helped us improve our product development processes significantly. Whether you require custom car magnets, die casts, pressed or extruded parts, you are assured of the highest quality possible as well as paperwork and traceability that meet industry standards.
To maintain manufacturing feasibility and ensure that no design details are omitted, we put your product through a rigorous checking system. Tools used include; Advanced Quality Planning, Failure Mode Effect Analysis, Quality Assurance Specification Sheets and finally historical statistical data to assess projected dimension capabilities. These tools should highlight any shortcomings in either the process or design which will inhibit the product from being manufactured to the correct standard.
To ensure your requirements are met, we record post-manufacture measurements and submit an Initial Sample Inspection Report or Production Inspection Report with your parts. A range of QA equipment, which is calibrated annually, helps us maintain our high standards. The measurements and checks at this stage include:
The type of material and the process used will both impact quality. While some clients require characterisation of material properties, others may need verification of composition or the element content.
To this end, we can provide composition, charpy impact tests, hardness tests and tensile strength tests, all of which are certified by a UK test house.
