Certifications: The Path to Success

Why are Certifications in Manufacturing Important? 

Similarly to how medical or defense companies follow HIPPA guidelines, manufacturing companies like us are required to uphold certain standards to ensure our products and people are safe. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards are crucial to our work and are internationally agreed upon by experts as the best way to go about things. Each year we assess our certifications and standards. This year we received certifications in ISO 9001:2015, ISO 13485:2016 and AS9100D for international Quality Management Standards.

A New Take on Stud Manufacturing

The History of Stud Manufacturing

Historically Studs were chamfered on a belt sander and hand stamped. This process was labor intensive and costly not to mention the increased risk for mistakes. Another method for stud manufacturing is chamfering in a lathe if the chamfer dimensions are precise such as for critical industries like aerospace, energy, and medical. Our studmaster machine significantly cuts down on production time and costs. A chamfer is a transitional edge between two sides of an object that is often created between the two sides of a 90* Angle. It is used in many applications to help ease with assembly when multiple pieces are involved and also removes a sharp edge which reduces room for workplace injuries. With metal applications it prevents damage to the metal.  The chamfered end is also called a “lark’s tongue” due to the similarity in shape.

The Climate of the Manufacturing Industry

The climate in the manufacturing industry has been affected by a variety of events, not the least of which is the COVID-19 pandemic. The problems filter down within the industry, including supply chain and shipping issues. When many companies were closed because of lockdowns, both essential and non-essential manufacturing were also affected. Manufacturing plants depend upon the availability of shipping containers, and if they are in short supply, products cannot reach customers.
