How AS9100 and ISO Certifications Benefit Every Peerless Precision CustomerLeave a Comment
Peerless Precision is proud to be AS9100 and ISO 9001:2015-certified through 2024.
That statement may not mean much if you don’t require your manufacturing partner to uphold these certifications. But the truth is that all our customers benefit from the standards we must meet to secure and maintain these credentials.
Here’s what our status as an AS9100 and ISO-certified machine shop means for you.
What Are AS9100 and ISO Certifications?
AS9100 is the standard for designing, developing, or providing products and services specifically for the aviation, space, and defense industries. This includes parts, components, and assemblies.
ISO addresses various aspects of quality management for organizations regardless of industry. This standard is based on “principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach, and continual improvement.” More than 1 million organizations and companies in more than 170 countries are ISO-certified.
Both AS9100 and ISO offer guidelines for organizations that want to improve the quality of products and consistently meet customer expectations. These standards establish rules throughout the entire manufacturing process, from providing a quote to the final part inspection.
When are AS9100 and ISO certifications essential?
Maintaining AS9100 and ISO 9001:2015 certifications is critical for businesses whose customers require these certifications. For example, aerospace and defense customers won’t partner with shops without AS9100 certifications. These standards guarantee customers get the same quality management procedures no matter which shop they choose.
How AS9100 and ISO Certifications Benefit Every Customer
Peerless Precision started the process of becoming an ISO and AS9100 machine shop before our customers required such standards. Our president Kristin Carlson’s late father saw the demand for these certifications coming and knew that Peerless should get ahead of the game.
Not every customer requires us to possess AS9100 and ISO 9001:2015 certifications. However, because we already have processes in place to maintain these standards, we follow AS9100 and ISO guidelines for every part we make to achieve the highest quality.
Our shop adheres to AS9100 and ISO standards in the following areas:
- Contract reviews
- Material purchasing
- Raw material certifications
- Inspection point guidelines (first part approvals, in-process inspections, and final inspections)
AS9100 and ISO standards are so ingrained into our services that our shop won’t even quote a part if we can’t inspect it properly! In some cases, that means acquiring specialized gauging or equipment for the inspection process.
