New Job Start Up

We Care As Much About New Job Start Up As You Do.

That's why we've developed a new job start up system that maintains the information flow between the customer and the foundry. We can include any requirements in our production and quality systems to assure that your individual specifications are always met before the part reaches the production line.






Pre-Engineering
A complete and thorough understanding of your requirements is the most important part of the quality equation. Our first step is a detailed review of your specifications.


We review:
  • Dimensions and Tolerances
  • Revision Level
  • Ease of Manufacturing
  • Parting Line, Draft and Gating Location
  • PPAP Requirements


Sampling
Sample castings are made for complete testing prior to the production run. An analysis is completed that takes a critical look at:
  •  Casting Soundness
  •  Micro Structure
  •  Chemical Analysis
  •  Physical Analysis
Grinding & Finishing
After testing, your sample castings are ground, finished and inspected to assure that your unique specifications will be met when the part goes into production.


Dimensional Accuracy
Sample parts are then measured and checked to make sure they meet dimensional specifications.


Production Master Development
Using the completed sample testing and quality information, an individual product master is developed for your part. After customer approval, this information is entered into our Odyssey software system. In this way, each step in the production process has the information needed to produce your part, to your specifications, every time.
