Quality by Design
Our Quality Policy
We strive for Zero Defects through world class quality planning, processes and tools.
FMI’s Quality Policy is “Do not Accept, Make, or Pass On Poor Quality”. Our quality approach is to integrate quality into our manufacturing processes through quality planning, employee engagement, and continuous improvement. FMI has developed a robust Total Quality Management System (TQM), including Statistical Process Control (SPC), performance metrics, and advanced quality tools such as Coordinate Measurement Machines (CMMs) and Laser Volumetric Calibration.
Our integrated quality system means that controls and inspections happen in process and immediate feedback on risk and improvements are identified in real time, allowing us to focus on quality assurance and process optimization concurrently.
Our Quality Tools
A key factor in quality control and assurance is continuous monitoring and maintenance of equipment. We contract with the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to maintain all equipment to OEM industry standards. In addition, our climate controlled 230,000 sq ft facility is 71 degrees year-round allowing tighter tolerances by altogether avoiding issues caused by thermal expansion or Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machine wear and tear.
