AZTECH QUALITY SYSTEM STANDARDS
The Quality Assurance operations at Aztech routinely develop PPAP’s and ISIR’s to customer standard and special requirements.

Aztech Locknut Supplier Partners are evaluated and scored routinely on their quality, on-time delivery and compliance to an array of Aztech specific standards outlined in the Aztech Locknut Supplier Manual.

Incoming Material Inspections occur at levels and frequencies that relate to each supplier.  Product attributes are ranked according to customer or industry standards as critical or non-critical and non-conformances are addressed as accordingly.  

In the production floor, First Article & In-Process Inspections are performed on a strict schedule.  Any non-conformance triggers an immediate and effective response from management.

Before product is shipped, it undergoes a Final Inspection of the critical and non-critical attributes, including visual.

Each afternoon, Aztech Management meets as the Material Review Board where every issue related to product quality or on-time delivery is discussed and dispositioned.
