Inspection and Quality Control Services
At Day Tool & Mfg, our inspection services are a natural extension of our dedication to providing the highest quality precision tooling and dies to customers in advanced manufacturing industries. A part will never be more accurate than the tooling on which it is produced, making the accuracy of dies and fixture critical to producing consistent parts that meet all dimensional tolerances.
Inspection services include the measurement and evaluation of all dimensional characteristics and their corresponding geometrical tolerancing critical to the performance of the tooling or a component. A manual and CNC equipped CMM on our shop floor are used to verify these dimensions to precision tolerances. Inspections may be performed as part of a first article inspection in accordance with SAE AS9102 procedures, or as otherwise designated by customer specifications.
Additional available services include comprehensive product development and CAD design programs as well as complete fabrication, machining, assembly, and testing of dies, fixtures, and other tooling. Our quality management system has continuously been AS9100, Rev D and ISO 9001:2015 certified, documenting our commitment to providing premium quality service to the aerospace, automotive, biotechnology, and medical industries.
Turnaround times are evaluated on a job-by-job basis, but average approximately two weeks. For additional information about all of our inspection capabilities, see the table below, or contact us directly.
