Quality Policy

Dimensional control – from quote to delivery

Ironform’s Lean operating model ensures world-class quality execution at every step.

  • At the quotation stage, designs are graded for complexity and tooled to meet the customer’s targeted acceptance criteria.

  • Products are submitted to Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) to validate control assumptions.

  • All products are subject to full coordinate measuring machine (CMM) layout, with the Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) submitted for customer approval prior to launch.

CT=TT=CI: Keeping pace with our customers

Ironform’s core strategy is to match our internal cycle time (CT) as closely as possible to our customers’ consumption rate (takt time, TT), continually identifying opportunities to minimize waste and maximize conformity in ever smaller magnitudes (continuous improvement, or CI).
