Test Equipment: Technical Capabilities and Quality Assurance
Because components and products manufactured by C-K usually perform a critical function, C-K has strong technical capabilities and quality assurance procedures. C-K’s staff includes several individuals with education and work experience in fields of engineering and science including electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, polymer chemistry and quality assurance. With these resources, C-K is able to offer assistance to customers in the areas of product design, quality test development, and technical problem solving.
Routine quality assurance procedures include testing and inspection of incoming raw materials, in process inspection, and coupon testing. Specific electrical, mechanical, and hydrostatic testing is performed on the completed products to customer specifications. Frequently, parts are serialized and referenced to test data contained in detailed test reports. C-K has extensive test equipment-several items of which are listed, and a well equipped QA laboratory. The Company’s Quality system meets the requirements of ISO-900, MIL-I-45208A and ANSI/NCSL Z540-1.
The Pittsburgh area, and the universities in Pittsburgh, offer extensive additional technical resources and outside testing services which C-K can draw upon when appropriate.
