Quality is our #1 Product.
Our Director of Quality Control is responsible for ensuring our Quality Management Standards are met throughout our organization. WFM holds multiple certifications including AISC, ISO 9001:2015, and NAVSEA, and our Quality Program must comply with all. Ongoing internal audits, continual improvement training, and enforcing these systems on the shop floor is a large and important task.
Our Quality Control Manager leads our team of certified NDE/NDT fabrication and machining inspectors on the shop floor. Warren Fabricating certified NDE inspectors can perform inspections in the magnetic particle, liquid dye penetrant, visual and ultrasonic disciplines. All inspectors are trained and certified based on Warren Fabricating Written Practice which is written in accordance with ASNT SNT-TC-1A.
In addition to NDE, we have the capability of fabricating components within 1/16 of an inch and machining within 0.001”. Standard fabrications are typically verified dimensionally using certified tape measures and machined features are inspected with calibrated micrometers, thread gauges, profilometers, laser trackers, etc. Using our FARO laser tracker with six degrees of freedom (6DOF) attachment, we can accurately measure and map any component produced within our facility. This process allows our Team to produce 3D data points which can then be overlaid onto a part model for dimensional compliance verification. A deeper dive into our capabilities of each is listed below.
Each job ships with a complete “Quality Data Record” package which includes the following:
