In machine building you need to be sure the components meet the specification. Castings & forgings are often critical parts of a load bearing structure, where component failure is not an option.
Balancing between over and under quality is no easy task. The cost effect of an arbitary engineering factor can greatly exceed the cost of a defect. In both cases value is lost but it is common the latter gets much more attention.
If we have deep understanding of our customer application, we can give valuable input in the design phase and help in defining acceptance criteria, making inspection protocols and professional inspecton of the goods as well as helping interprete the observations.
The parts have a function that needs to be fulfilled. Sometimes the specification is incomplete or is not unambiguous. We have experience in solving such issues and asking the correct questions making sure our customers get not only what they say but what they truly need.
After an inspection, there is often input discovered for further improving the manufacturing process but also how to improve the specification.
