Expert Quality Control

HCI has built its reputation of excellence by constantly enforcing and improving an ISO 9001:2000 compliant quality control system.

From design to shipment, your part is carefully monitored and checked to ensure quality and accuracy with every run.

During "receiving inspection" HCI insures that it has current paperwork and print per P.O. Also upon reception of materials, they are inspected and must meet proper certifications and dimensional tolerances or the material is not accepted.

A "First Article Inspection" is made prior to production run. Upon approval, production begins using custom flow charts to track critical dimensions during the entire run.

A final inspection is performed prior to shipping, and all inspections are documented, including the traceability of materials, Heat treating specs and plating specs. All of this documentation is kept by HCI for an indefinite period.

A detailed copy of the HCI Quality Control Manual is available to all customers upon request.
