QUALITY ASSURANCE

We believe to have an effective quality system you must have quality planning, process control and verification of your customer’s requirements.

Quality plans are developed for each individual product that is received on a P.O. We have our standard quality plans which are created with the assistance of Inspection Xpert software. We utilize Zero Acceptance Number Sampling Plans by Nicholas L. Squeqlia as the base of our inspection process. Process control is developed and documented on first production run to achieve repetitive quality and workmanship on future orders.

Verification of customer requirements is performed using 1st piece approval prior to running production, in-process inspection to monitor critical criteria and final inspection. We use equipment ranging from hand measuring tools to CMM’s to Laser Scanning equipment. We use suppliers accredited to ISO/IEC 17025 to calibrate the Quality Department’s equipment. Here at Ingleside, we also have the ability to perform in-house Gage R & R study.

We have been recognized by several customers with self-release status. This means that our customers have the confidence in our process control and inspection abilities to ship parts from our dock to their assembly areas to their customers. This proves that we are considered a top tier supplier.

Iridite

Chemical Conversion/Iridite

Ingleside Machine Co.,Inc. can provide both Type I and Type II compliant coatings IAW with MIL-DTL-5541. Type I is commonly known as Yellow and Clear Iridite or Alodine finishes, chemical conversion coatings are used primarily for paint adhesion on aluminum. Type II is a RoHS compliant iridite that has a clear to bluish hue. Two classes of coatings are available these include Class 1A “For maximum protection against corrosion, painted or unpainted” and Class 3 “For protection against corrosion where low electrical resistance is required”. Both classes provide a minimum of 168 hours of salt spray protection.
Ingleside is an approved source for Lockheed Martin.

Iridite Capabilities:

  • Tank Size: 19” x 31” x 32”

e-coat2

Electrocoat (E-Coat)

Electrocoating (also called e-coating or electrodeposition) is the process by which a metallic workpiece is submerged in a paint / water bath and electricity is used to deposit paint onto the workpiece. With proper attention to bath chemistry, operating parameters, and facility maintenance, an electrodeposition process is capable of providing the highest first-run capability of any coating process at very high line speeds. Coating film thickness can be controlled via voltage, and bath temperature adjustments to vary in only tenths of a mil over the entire workpiece. The electrodeposition process provides the highest material transfer efficiency obtainable by any coating process. Electrodeposition coatings are water-based and contain as little as 1-3% volatile organic solvent. Our E-coat process has an UV protection additive that works great for military application.

E-Coat Capabilities:

  • Black color to meet FED-STD-595/27038
  • Gloss range up to 30 Degrees
  • For Steel: 18” x 18” x 20”
