Inspection

Given the intricacy of our customer’s parts, it is imperative that we measure a variety of tolerances when checking. Our process of first article inspection is instrumental prior to starting the operation. This form of risk mitigation allows both the operator and Quality specialist to have a mutual agreement before beginning production. Our state of the art equipment such as the MMQ400, CS-3200 and MicroVu allow for detailed examination:

  • Our Geometric Gauging is capable of measuring roundness and concentricity down to .00001″.
  • Laser micrometers deliver repeatability to .00002″ and accuracy of .00001″ with single point re-mastering

Quality control is maximized with our multilevel inspection process, which includes:

  • Random Sampling
  • In-Process inspection
  • First Article Inspection
  • Final Production Lot Inspection

Service

Five decades in the industry has correlated to an extensive understanding and expertise of the variety of industries that we serve. Experienced and knowledgeable Operators have been our foundation since our doors opened in 1966, which can be attributed to our custom training process that each employee undergoes. Constant collaboration between Operators and Process Control allow for additional modification to improve processes. Asteroid continues to strive toward perfection every day.

Quality

Asteroid has earned a reputation for unmatched quality. Precise tolerances are controlled with quality control procedures and state-of-the-art instruments. Our geometry gauging system indicates roundness and concentricity of OD and ID down to ± .00001˝. Laser micrometers deliver repeatability and accuracy to ± .00002˝ and an accuracy of ±.00001” with single point mastering. Our diligent quality control process along with our Mitutoyo CS-3200 and Mahr MMQ 400, provide complete SPC capabilities. Quality control is maximized with our multilevel inspection process, which includes first article, in-process inspection, random sampling, and final production lot inspection. Upon request, all inspections can be fully documented and available to the customer.
