We provide 100% traceability from raw material stock to the final product. In addition to being ISO 9001:2015 Certified and ITAR Registered, we work closely with each customer to ensure we produce the parts according to exact specifications. Our employees are cross-trained in all phases of the metal etching production and multiple inspections take place throughout the entire process.

INSPECTION EQUIPMENT
COMPREHENSIVE.     ACCURATE.     QUICK.

Another important step in the Quality Process is the final inspection.   We use the best methods and tools that determine if the parts are suitable for its intended industry application.  Our quality policy requires inspection for surface imperfections, smoothness, and metal and plating properties.  With the use of handheld calipers and digital equipment, we deliver a quick and accurate analysis of measurement data and tolerances.   All of these methods provide a comprehensive approach to our quality policy and determines the outcome of the photochemical machining process.
