Quality Control Assurance

South Bend Form Tool’s quality control assurance department has multiple qualified and experienced personnel who maintain their high level of verifying or determining whether products or services meet or exceed our customer expectations.

Our planning stages, for example, could include investigation into the quality of the raw materials used in the manufacturing process, the actual assembly, or the inspection processes used.

We demand a degree of detail in order to be fully implemented at every step. The Checking steps include customer feedback, surveys, and/or other marketing vehicles to determine if customer needs are being exceeded and why they are or are not.

Our quality control assurance personnel are skilled in using precision pins, dial bore gages through 6" capacity, thread plugs, ring gages, optical comparators, and the other equipment listed.

Our full service capabilities ensure the shortest delivery schedule possible.

We have the ability to receive and work with AutoCAD and SurfCam drawings.  We are also fully capable of receiving other source software such as Catia and converting them over to DWG or DXF files to be used on the production floor.

This process of file conversion allows our machine operators to program any of their CNC machining centers to produce the most elaborate parts in the shortest possible time.
