To fully ensure that product requirements are met, our team maintains statistical process control in manufacturing, including heat lot control and material traceability.

We achieve exceptional quality control year after year through continuous improvement and ongoing quality awareness training. Our team of experts is ready to assist you in all phases of production including design, value engineering, testing, and failure analysis to ensure maximum quality at the lowest possible cost. And with short lead time, we can provide you with prototypes and samples that allow performance testing at the same standards you can expect in final production.

Quality Processes

A leading provider of custom precision machining services, we are committed to achieving the highest possible quality in every steel part or component. In addition to maintaining a staff of experienced mechanics who are trained in Six Sigma Quality techniproject or applicationques.

Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) Services

STANLEY® Engineered Fastening utilizes several high-tech non-destructive testing (NDT) techniques. A more cost-effective measure of quality assurance for complicated parts and components, non-destructive testing is valued for the ability to measure the soundness or mechanical integrity of a finished custom part without damaging it. We offer the following types of NDT:

  • Magnetic Particle Inspection to ASTM E709 - uses a magnet to detect flaws in ferromagnetic precision machined parts such as those composed of nickel alloys.
  • Dye Penetrant Inspection to ASTM E165 - an NDT method used for nonferrous, nonabsorbent steel components. A visible liquid dye is applied then removed; any subsequent seepage reveals any flaws in the finished part.

Quality Equipment: Met Lab

Our met lab equipment tests the integrity of precision machined parts and components by applying force to an extra test piece or a prolongation devised specifically for testing that is broken from the main part. Force, whether tensile, impact, etc., is applied until the test piece fails, thereby providing a large amount of information on the test piece’s mechanical properties, which are comparable to the properties of the remaining precision parts and components.


Marking Equipment for Custom Machined Parts

We maintain an in-house line of marking equipment. This equipment is used to create high-quality, non-damaging marks on the custom machined parts and components. Critical to accurate and efficient asset tracing, warranty tracking, and warehousing, marking also allows for easy part identification.
