Quality Control

When stamping metal components to micron precision, quality is extremely important; the overall goal is for every stage of the manufacturing process from design through to manufacture and shipment to be completely defect free. For this to be the case, the most stringent quality standards are applied and adhered to.

If problems do occur, then a comprehensive 8D quality process to identify and deal with issues in real-time is critical.

Brandauer operate with numerous quality certifications in place for the stamping of precision metal components and the processes it must run in the design, manufacture and logistics processes. The most important requisite for assured quality standards in the industry are quality certifications from the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO).  

Brandauer incorporate quality controls into every phase of a metal stamping project and is focused on prevention through quality inspection processes, where parts and tooling are monitored continually throughout the manufacturing process.
