Calipers - Quality AssuranceFirst Article Inspection

As part of the introduction of any new product we perform a First Article Inspection to confirm the finished article’s fitness for purpose, its conformance to all customer requirements, and adherence to all required national and international regulations. The First Article Inspection also allows a comprehensive review of the manufacturing method for its suitability.

A full report of the inspection, including traceability of materials and equipment is generated and can be supplied either digitally, or as a hard copy if required.
