Delivering the Highest Quality Products to the Customer
We have many inspections throughout the operations. Our operators provide the primary inspections. A member of the quality team does secondary inspections. We also have in-process to make sure that every part is conforming from start to finish.
Quality Management System
Twice each week, the quality manager meets with management to review, word-for-word, the quality management system documents and the ISO forms to verify that all the quality protocols are followed, and that the procedures adhere to the requirements.
All of the run times, scrap weights, any non-conformances and corrective actions are all logged into the system and documented. Corrective actions are documented. Weights are tracked, reports printed, and on-time delivery measured. Each section is reviewed to ensure we have clean records in our system.
ISO 9001:2015 Certification
Most of the customer companies that Tahoma Engineered Solutions serves require an ISO 9001:2015 certification as a requirement to do production work for them.
Following the initial ISO surveillance audit, Tahoma Engineered Solutions continues to:
· Follow a good strong quality system.
· Show traceable records and proof of inspection.
· Having defined standard that is followed throughout production.
· Maintain on-going reviews of quality documents and ISO forms.
Continuous Improvement Activities
Production management works together with operators to implement continuous improvement activities, including daily tracking of machine efficiencies, production output and job times.
A continuous career training program has been implemented with the goal to educate all the machine operators up to second and third tier level.
Inspections of the precision machining CNC and mill machines have an intensive quality program.
The machinery and tools have scheduled calibration where they are matched to the standards and their dimensions are tagged. When each of the mills and lathes are set up for a job, they are touching off at certain points per the program to zero out and find their origin.
All of the gauges are calibrated on a 12-month frequency. When gauges are pulled from the lab, they are measured and matched to theNIST traceable standard.
Secondary processing such as heat treating, anodizing, finish grinding, are also part of the certification process. They are inspected, traceable, and receive material certifications, as well.
