Quality Assurance

With a goal of zero defects, the quality of the components we design and manufacture is at the center of everything we do. To maintain the high standards we have set for ourselves, we follow a thorough quality assurance protocol.

ISO 9001-2008

We understand the importance of quality assurance. Our ISO 9001-2008 certifies that Akron Tool & Die consistently provides products and services that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. It also signifies our commitment to ongoing improvements in all aspects of our business.

Design Review Process

When working on extrusion die projects that include viscosity curves and other rheology data, our design review process identifies our customers’ requirements and custom tailors a die that will meet or exceed their expectations.

100% Inspection

Our approach to quality is straightforward — 100% inspection of all parts and dimensions. From our machinists to our quality control inspector, every product is checked to ensure the highest degree of accuracy.

Extensive Review Process

In conjunction with physical inspections, all customers’ engineering is reviewed, and suggestions are given to reduce machine cost and/or improve part integrity. All assemblies are checked for proper fit, seal, and functionality prior to shipment. A copy of our Quality Assurance Manual is available at your request.
