Quality

èèɫ's commitment to quality comes from its employee's and leadership's commitment to supplying world class solutions to automation and aircraft assembly challenges. To show èèɫ's continuing commitment to quality and improvement èèɫ has developed and implemented a world class Quality System. This system has many features and capabilities that make up a system capable of assuring customer satisfaction with quality products.

AS9100 Registered

èèɫ has had an ISO 9000 registered quality system since 1994. As a leader in the industry, in 2004 èèɫ was one of the first companies to achieve registration to the AS9100-2004 rev B aerospace standard.

Code Weld Quality

èèɫ has significant welding and fabrication capability. To meet customer specification requirements, èèɫ welders are certified to the AWS D1.1, AWS D1.2 and AWS D9.1 codes. Welding capability and certification extend to both steel and aluminum welding. èèɫ inspectors are certified to inspect welds to all of these codes.

Licensed Electrical Contractor

Factory installation of machine tools requires the ability to do wiring and other modifications at the customer's sites. To meet this requirement, èèɫ acquired Washington State electrical contractors license number ELECTI*055KA. èèɫ employs a Washington State certified Electrical Administrator and Journeymen Electricians to support this capability.

Laser Tracking

Measuring large assemblies is a key requirement of èèɫ's Quality Assurance System. To accomplish this we acquired laser tracker capabilities. These systems are portable coordinate measuring systems. The operator tracks the retro-reflector to tooling locations on the assembly and the laser measures the location in space. By overlapping measurements and creating enhanced reference systems, the measurement cube becomes virtually unlimited. This not only gives us the ability to measure large assemblies, but to provide reference systems to our customers for maintenance purposes. We are one of the largest users of laser tracking systems in the world.
