is a critical part of our service. As well as
each machine center being equipped with online
CAD stations and measuring gauges we also operate
a dedicated inspection department with two full
time quality control engineers. As a company
with a long term proven track record within the
aerospace and defence industries we understand
what quality means to our customers.
Inspection Department & CMM
inspection department is headed by Roy Tibble
who has been with Aerocomponents since 1990.
The inspection department is equipped with CMM
equipment, profile projectors, toolmakers microscopes,
hardness testers and a range of gauges & general
measurement equipment, full
. Depending on the type of contract,
most components will pass through the inspection
department which is connected to our production
management system and CAD/CAM department where
it will be inspected and signed for. We offer
full certificates of conformity and batch traceability.
Shop Floor Inspection
is carried out at every level. Machine operatives
are responsible for the quality of their work
and are fully equipped to undertake inspection
as and when required. This procedure not only
identifies program errors but also tool wear
and machine inaccuracies.
of the most critical components of our production
facility are our machines. These are regularly
inspected for tool wear as well as bearing and
zeroing errors. Because we standardise on the
Hurco machine centers we are able to take machines
off line for inspection and repair as and when
without any loss of production time.
