QC-2As machining capabilities continue to improve and become more precise, it is vital that quality control systems keep up. This is particularly true in the Aerospace and defense industries where verification of conformance and traceability are a must.

All quality assurance processes, when working for the world’s most demanding industries such as aerospace, medical, and more, need to verify that each machined component meets the technical requirements as well as full traceability of feature chararitics such as:

  • True position
  • GD & T form controls such as parallel, perpendicular, and profile.
  • Surface roughness characteristics such as Ra, Rz, Rt, Rq, Ry, and more…
  • Final dimensional verification down to .0001”
