Quality and Certifications
At Metalex, the complex and challenging nature of our work requires that quality is part of our manufacturing process from the start.
On difficult parts and assemblies, Metalex team members from our quotation, programming, engineering and quality departments work as a team during the start-up, development and prove-out stages of the manufacturing process.
When a new part is released, the quality team assumes ownership of the first article and follows it through the manufacturing cycle, communicating openly to avoid duplicated effort and ensure the fixturing design supports both machining and inspection whenever possible.
The input and collaboration from this multi-talented team is then used to develop the most efficient and consistent manufacturing process required to deliver excellent quality and competitive cost for the first article and any future production runs.
