When we talk about CNC machining manufacturing, fractions of inches create all the difference between a sold product and a lost customer. There are various ways to promote quality assurance (QA) in CNC manufacturing.


What is CNC Machining Quality Assurance?


Quality assurance is a process used by CNC machining organizations to help in measuring the products’ quality made on CNC equipment.

CNC machining organizations are contacted for rapid prototyping and contract manufacturing services. Tolerances have to fall within microscopic limits.

For instance, 1 oil line valve is less than 1mm bigger than specified. If used, the outcome could be hundreds of new cars leaking fuel oil. Similar unexpected and unwanted results can happen in shipbuilding, aerospace, appliance, and other industries. To avoid these errors, the role of quality assurance comes in.

Flawless Equipment

The first thing for quality assurance is to make sure your equipment can make the prototype required. CNC equipment includes routers, grinders, and milling machines. Buy CNC equipment from a reliable dealer.


Frequent Calibration

One of the important things manufacturers do for maintaining high-quality is frequent calibration and complying with a maintenance protocol. Machines can easily lose their calibration from vibration, and other incidents can happen on the floor. Several maintenance protocols fail to insert the spindles on the CNC equipment. Making them a vital part of a maintenance program pays dividends by minimizing downtime.

Conduct inspections through QA staff can be redundant in the future. Technology is briskly augmenting and replacing human inspections.

Record Keeping

It is another strategy for CNC shops for quality promotion. Recording results of the inspection and showcasing them in a table or chart provides QA personnel an easy way to view data about CNC machines on the floor and monitor them for unusual and common problems.

Implement a Predictive Maintenance Program (PDM). Seamless PMDs cover maintenance and reliability, a machine tool variability management system, the program for effective analysis.

Quality-oriented CNC Machining

Sometimes, there is a gap for floor workers including CNC operators. One way producers can battle out this skills gap is to partner with a local school of higher learning and provide apprenticeships for future CNC operators.
