Quality is a key factor in any industry, and CNC machining is no exception. In order to meet the customer’s specifications and avoid any quality problems when the product arrives at the customer, we will use a variety of different types of measuring machines and tools for inspection during the CNC machining.
Why is quality control important?
Quality control is a comprehensive inspection of products and manufacturing processes. In CNC machining, quality control is essential to ensure that the manufactured products meet the standards and requirements of enterprises, industries and customers. In addition, proper quality control of CNC parts will avoid defective products, minimize risks, ensure dimensional accuracy and quality, save resources, reduce costs, and improve efficiency. This is good for both manufacturers and customers.
Since QC is an active part of quality management, good QC can prevent quality problems. In other words, since manufacturers do not have to think too much about scrapped parts, returns, and other by-products of inferior products, they can save a lot of money.
With the reduction of defective products, manufacturers can spend resources such as time, money, and warehouse space not only on making more quality parts, but also on other lucrative projects. If processes are in place to support the success of the program, fewer resources are required to produce quality goods.
Improve Customer Satisfaction
When manufacturers adopt effective quality assurance techniques, customers will receive better products in a faster time and with higher consistency. Since the probability of receiving defective products is lower, customers can also see the benefits of more personalization and innovation because there are more resources available for these tasks.
Therefore, we should start with the definition and establishment of quality standards for each part to establish an effective quality control system. Professional quality control and inspection personnel are also necessary.
How do we carry out quality control on CNC machining process and products
1. Understand The Industry Background
Based on the different standards of each industry, when we receive an order, we need to understand the industry background in addition to the design drawings. For example, medical and military parts generally should have excellent accuracy, absolute safety, excellent quality and strict tolerances, and may need to withstand extreme conditions.
2. Understand The Design Of The Product
When the customer sends the CAD drawing of the final product, our engineers and designers will analyze the design in detail, understand the customer’s product specifications and requirements, and check every detail before production. We will use the most cost-effective solution to process your parts, control the factors in the entire CNC machining process, and ensure that the requirements are met.
3. Check The Parts With Precision Measuring Devices
SANS’s professional measuring machine operators will handle the final parts after processing. There are various advanced measurement tools that can be used for many inspection measurements, such as size, hardness, color, tolerance, etc. The inspector can inspect the parts, and can remove the parts on or off the machine.
All our inspection equipment is quality controlled to ensure high precision and accuracy, and each part can be inspected consistently to ensure that the standards are correct.
It is suitable for the testing of precision small custom parts, the tolerance is ±0.003mm, and the measuring part can be magnified by 10 times.
As a well-known Japanese precision measuring tool testing and manufacturing factory, Mitutoyo Measuring Tools has high-precision resolution and detection accuracy, which can meet customers’ testing requirements for precision parts.
This instrument can efficiently detect the contour and surface shape of various complicated workpieces. For example: templates, stamping parts, cams, threads, gears, forming files, taps and other tools, tools and parts. We use this tool to measure the size of products and molds, or to measure the geometric tolerances of the components under test, such as position , Concentricity, straightness, profile, roundness and dimensions related to the datum.
Mitutoyo Digital Altimeter
The structure is stable, the operation is simple, and the application range is wide. It can detect the overall dimensions, table size, and depth dimensions of the workpiece.
Mitutoyo Digital Outside Micrometer
Meet the IP65 protection standard, ±1um incremental error, the correct use of the micrometer can ensure the quality of parts, save costs, and avoid waste or rework, because small errors are known to cause chain reactions. The consequences can be fatal. Therefore, at SANS, we teach all mechanics to use micrometers correctly, as well as Mitutoyo digital calipers and Nikon digital altimeters.
Used to measure the hardness of parts after heat treatment. The measuring range is 20HRC-90HRC.
4. Check While The Part Is Running
Sometimes, we need to perform quality inspections while processing parts are running in order to find problems early and rework parts before completion. Some operations can be performed to adjust the machine to maintain tighter tolerances, such as adjusting the tool offset to leave a little excess inventory, allowing the tool to machine the workpiece, measuring the work done by the tool, and so on. This applies especially to newly developed products.
5. Communicate With Customers
Whether in the manufacturing process or after sending samples, timely communication with customers is effective. Buyers and customers have clear requirements on the specifications and functions of the product. When receiving an inquiry from a customer, we will contact them as soon as possible and give a free quotation as soon as possible. If there is something wrong, we will immediately Adjust the solution. If you have special requirements, please inform in advance.
6. Experienced Managers
The inspection supervisor has been engaged in quality work since graduation. He is familiar with product drawings, technical standards and testing methods, familiar with product characteristics and product quality requirements, and is responsible for strict quality control.
The manager in charge of the factory has been engaged in precision processing and management for more than 15 years. He has always been in the connector industry in Japan, Europe and the United States, medical industry, and automotive related industries, production quality, production management scheduling, and urgent products. Correspondingly, we put forward reasonable suggestions for customers’ design and problem products, and helped customers solve on-site emergency problems many times.
7. The Inspection Report Is Sent With The Goods
In addition, we have a test report for each order, which will be shipped with the goods to ensure that the goods received by the customer are qualified and high-quality.
At the same time, we have a complete quality management system, we have ISO9001:2015 certificate and test report, if necessary, we can also provide material test certificate.
Provide 100% full inspection service before shipment so that we can deliver high-quality CNC parts to customers around the world.
