Quality & Inspection

OuR Quality POLICY

Altair Technologies is committed to provide defect-free products and services that meet or exceed our customers’ expectations through the effectiveness and continual improvement of our Quality Management System.

The cornerstone of our ISO 9001 registered quality system is a dedicated closed-loop corrective action that requires an ECO or training log in order to disposition/release a customer return or internal discrepant assembly. Because we are a precision Brazer, we require a high AQL at incoming and final inspection. This, along with our supplier rating system and source control of raw materials, cleaning, plating, machining lubricants and virtually all supplies entering our facility, have achieved an ideal environment for producing strictly controlled high vacuum products.   We also have Lot Traceability, Serialization and virtually keep a permanent record of all Jobs.  Altair conducts internal audits, Business System Review on a quarterly basis and in addition to the many external audits, undergoes a bi-annual ISO 9001 audit.

Our Inspection Department uses both CMM, precise X-Y-Z Optical and manual tool inspection equipment.  In addition to our quantitative measurements we also perform a visual inspection to ensure surfaces meet the appearance standards and that braze fillets also conform to Altair’s and our customer’s requirements.
