First Article Inspection

Our First Article Inspection department's primary purpose is to verify that all engineering, design and specification requirements are accounted for, compliant, and documented. We support the AS9102 aerospace standard for First Article Inspection Requirements (FAIR).  This inspection reporting is a complete, documented detail of the functional inspection process that ensures that the part is an acceptable item as specified by engineering documents, specifications and design documents.

Our state-of-the-art inspection facility supports our manufacturing group utilizing 8 manual coordinate measuring machines (CMM), 5 direct computer-controlled (DCC) machines, and hundreds of hand tools strategically located at each work station.  This provides an efficient work flow methodology for quick turn-around and minimizes machine idle times.
