When automotive manufacturers source components for use in the production of their vehicles, quality and consistency in the manufacturing process is key. After all, just one faulty component can lead to a defective, and dangerous, vehicle - an unacceptable result for an automotive manufacturer.
The following is a closer look at what’s at the core of current technological innovations for improving quality and consistency in the manufacturing of components.
Achieving consistent product quality with technological innovations starts with automation through state-of-the-art machinery. With machine automation, every component that rolls off an assembly line is manufactured to exact specifications and within strict tolerances to attain manufacturing quality consistency. Having the machinery produce a high standard product to precise specifications allows manufacturing companies to ensure consistent product quality.
It’s important that innovative manufacturing technologies are introduced throughout the entire manufacturing process - from offline research and development to online component manufacturing with pre-ship quality control. For example, Hartford Technologies employs a number of industry-leading technologies, such as high speed heading machines and computer controlled grinding & lapping equipment, along with X-ray, optical, and eddy current machines for 100% inspection. We also utilize our own custom built assembly equipment that incorporate a number of fail-safe features that guarantee every part is perfect. These technologies represent advanced innovations to deliver a quality, state-of-the-art product.
Methodologies for manufacturing quality and consistency do not stop with automaton and/or technology. In addition to employing innovative, state-of-the-art machines, manufacturers also include a wide range of quality assurance processes to test and confirm the quality and consistency of the components being manufactured. For example, at Hartford Technologies, our quality assurance process encompasses systems for testing and analyzing both the integrity of the materials that go into making our components, and also the quality and performance of the various tools we use throughout the manufacturing process.
When you look for a supplier of balls, bearings, pins, and more for an automotive manufacturing company, it is essential that you work with a company that is able to ensure that the components that they ship can be relied upon to have the same excellent attributes. At Hartford Technologies, we are proud to be that supplier; the consistent quality of our products is our most important priority.
