Quality

Tools that last

Your success is part of the initial plan. Along the path to completion, we constantly monitor our quality to ensure that we are meeting and exceeding all specifications and the highest manufacturing standards.

Coordinate measuring machine (CMM) inspections and thorough record keeping on each job are just a part of our quality program. Continuous improvement is not just a goal, but a requirement.

Techniques like hard milling as a replacement for EDM where possible, means you get longer tool life because of a better metallurgical surface structure. Customers report more cycles and longer tool life with Dura Mold transfer plate molds and water jacket inserts, historically complex, high-wear components, for instance.

ISO 9001:2000 certification says we work toward perfection, but your satisfaction is the ultimate proof of our quality.
