The Flinchbaugh Company and its management team fully embrace the principles and practices of the ISO quality management system, having achieved ISO 9001 quality registration in 1998. The company is ISO 9001:2008 certified by SAI Global (QMI).
The Flinchbaugh Company is also in full compliance with the government’s MIL-I-45208A standards. Strict inventory control and production management systems enable us to meet even the toughest production schedules and requirements – all at a highly competitive price.
At The Flinchbaugh Company, we view our Quality Assurance staff as the “voice of the customer,” representing our clients’ best interest throughout the manufacturing process. We also view machine operator staff as critical variables of process control. Our philosophy is to build quality into the project.
Our ISO 9001:2008 quality system helps us to control all manufacturing process data, ensuring both reliable and accurate dimensional machining. We also maintain cost data, which in turn helps ensure quick quote turnaround and highly competitive pricing.
The Flinchbaugh Company utilizes various Quality Assurance procedures and equipment to maintain its ISO system. A contract review checklist is completed upon receipt of every customer drawing. First-Piece inspections are completed by certified personnel prior to the start of each manufacturing setup by the operator. Detailed work instructions, special instructions and drawings are provided to the operators in a job packet created for each customer order. Receiving inspection is performed upon receipt of job materials and final inspections are completed prior to customer order shipment. Calibrated inspection equipment such as our, COORD3 CNC CMM, MAHR Formtester, Brown and Sharpe CMM, Jones and Lamson comparator with digit readout, MAHR Micro-Hite and numerous manual gages ensure that we can accurately inspect everything we manufacture.
We’re proud of our certification, but our quality system is simply one tool we use to reach our ultimate goal – completely satisfied customers who trust us for timely, accurate production and delivery of high quality parts.
