Quality Inspection

Operating according to a proven and stringent QA methodology, and utilizing sophisticated inspection equipment, MiniMetal supplies world leading OEMs with highly complex components for various critical applications.

All quality inspection processes at MiniMetal are performed by seasoned engineers and supervised by Israeli CNC experts, according to the international ISO 9002 and ISO 9001:2000 standards.

Covering every stage of the production line our quality inspection process is highly comprehensive and meticulous:

Step 1 – Design for Manufacturing (DFM) – facilitating the manufacturing process in order to reduce manufacturing costs and avoid potential problems.

Step 2 – Raw Material Inspection and Analysis – all incoming materials are thoroughly examined in order to identify flaws prior to manufacturing.

Step 3 – First Article Inspection (FAI) – a preliminary inspection performed both by the client and ourselves ensures the process will yield the desired outcome.

Step 4 – In Process Inspection – real-time, continuous production line evaluation.

Step 5 – Final Inspection – a test performed in the final stages of production in order to exclude any damage or defects. Every finished product also undergoes a visual inspection.

To ensure product safety and avoid damage, our packaging department separately wraps each product in a special protective cover. All products are then packed in custom wooden crates for the ultimate protection during shipping.

Comprehensive Inspection Equipment

Our Longgang factory and logistic center utilizes diverse, state-of-the-art equipment including:

XRF (X-Ray Fluorescence) – a non-destructive testing technique that uses short-wave X-rays or gamma radiation to analyze a range of materials, including metals and plastics, in order to detect the elements present and their relative concentrations.

Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) – a device that collects a set of points to accurately and repeatedly define the physical geometrical parameters of a complex shape.

Surfometer – a measuring instrument that checks the roughness average for small, difficult-reach surfaces to ensure a uniform surface finish.

Electrometer 456 – an instrument that accurately measures coating thickness to ensure homogeneous dry film thickness coverage.
