Quality Assurance

Premier Die Casting Company’s Quality Management System is ISO 9001:2000 Certified

Advanced Quality/Production Planning

  • A Part Control Plan is generated for each part manufactured identifying all key product characteristics and defining the methods for their control.
  • A Process Flowchart is generated and defines the manufacturing process as well as the interaction and controls throughout the product realization.
  • Process Failure Mode & Effects Analysis is performed to assure the prevention of defectives through the manufacturing process.
  • A Full Metrology Review of the key parameters is performed and methods established to assure design intent is met.
  • A Full Dimensional Layout is performed to verify mold design and part print compliance in the pre-production phase.

Measuring Equipment

  • Spectrometer for Spectrographic Analysis of Alloy
  • 2-Coordinate Measurement Machines for full dimensional layout
  • Pro-Manager & Visi-Trak for real-time monitoring and SPC analysis of key process parameters
  • Standard calibrated instruments used throughout industry to verify key product characteristics

Quality Control

  • Part Qualification: First-Piece Inspection at the start of each production run
  • SPC: Variable and Attribute Control Charting during the production run
  • Part Evaluation: Last Piece Inspection at the end of each production run
  • Final Audit: Random sampling of each ship lot for compliance of key characteristics
