What is Quality Control & Why is it Important?
Quality control is any set of procedures designed to ensure consistent product quality and can also include plans for improvements in efficiency and production capabilities. Quality control systems are integral to any business that provides a product, whether physical or otherwise. In precision machining, quality control encompasses considerations around the manufacturing process for a specific part, equipment maintenance, inspection of components, and much more. These processes are particularly important in precision manufacturing, as they:
- Prevent defects – Defective parts can have potentially catastrophic consequences for the ultimate manufacturing application. Therefore, preventing defects and weaknesses is a critical part of any quality assurance program.
- Ensure dimensional accuracy – Many applications require parts with extremely tight tolerances with complex geometries. Without proper quality control, it will be impossible to produce components to such precise dimensions.
- Improve efficiency – A robust quality control program will consider the entire manufacturing process with the goal of producing precision components without defects in a timely manner while minimizing waste. This helps to conserve resources and control costs for customers.
For precision machining, creating an effective quality control system starts with establishing a standard for each specific manufacturing process. Only with a well-defined standard can quality assurance processes ranging from equipment setups to inspections be designed with the correct specifications.
