Hiring a certified injection molding company may not seem to be important when the need arises. However, not taking that vital factor into account when making your choice means that you run the risk of entrusting your product to a company which may have minimal concern about maintaining the highest of standards.
AS 9100 Certification
Prior to 1999, quality management in the aerospace industry was a hit-or-miss proposition, with no uniform set of standards to offer assurance that a business can accomplish the task they’re performing. That led to crucial compliance and enforcement issues.
The result was the AS 9100, which not only includes all of the pertinent components of the earlier requirements, but also adds directives that specifically focus on safety and quality. Implementing this system is a necessary standard when it comes to having any injection molding company work with a major aerospace firm or one of their suppliers.
ISO 9001 Certification
When it comes to the ISO 9001, this certification covers not only plastic injection molding in aerospace, but automotive, industrial and military markets as well.
With the ISO 9001, the focus is on documenting the production process in order to educate all employees and conducting repeated audits to make sure quality is emphasized. In addition, past problems are addressed as well as look into the future to be aware of potential issues.
This process makes a concerted effort to establish a direct line of communication with the client, and has a specific plan in place should problems develop with one of the parties connected to the process.
A Mantra to Live By
Whether it’s AS 9100 or ISO 9001, proper certification translates into peace of mind for a business that can’t afford to have anything less than top quality items.
