Inspection and verification of molds and tooling equipment requires a QC team that is highly knowledgeable and well-equipped for precision testing. A cavity or abscess in a mold used in plastic injection can leave protrusions on a product that inhibit function. Similarly, poorly calibrated equipment or assemblies can lead to quality issues, or worse, present a safety hazard to the user. In either case, inspection and verification are essential aspects of making sure tooling and molds are made to specification.
Inspecting the tooling and molds that will be used to produce your products is an excellent way to identify quality issues early and correct them before mass production begins. AQF auditors will verify that molds match client-provided specifications precisely.
Mold accessories are checked for proper fit and function, to prevent any poorly fitting components from being used during large scale production. During mold and tooling inspections, AQF auditors are also able to pull samples for thorough lab testing to determine important characteristics of the material such as steel classification, strength, and hardness.
If you manage a brand, retail operation, or have clients that are relying on you to provide a quality product in every shipment then do not settle for inspection companies who use untrained and underpaid local inspectors.
AQF QA teams are trained and our inspectors often have an engineering background. We’ll make sure you have the right team for the job and that your products are getting evaluated carefully and with high regard for product quality.
You guys are quite efficient in making sure that you are in constant communication with our vendors to set up a time and day to have inspections handled... InTouch definitely pushed to make sure that inspections would be done in a timely manner. Any corrective actions that had to take place were executed well before the exit factory date.
Director of Production, Betabrand
Since InTouch does a more detailed inspection than what we had depended on with the factories, the quality of the products has improved. Where before when we might find 25 AQL defects, now it's down to three or four,because the factory knows that we want that cut back and InTouch is going to find it.
Administrative Assistant, Linstol
InTouch’s auditing reduced the level of risk, whether known or unknown, to our company. From the audit findings provided by InTouch, we were much more equipped to make the correct business decision with regard to an acceptable level of risk. The InTouch audit secured our decision making process.
Vice President of Purchasing, MJS Packaging
One of our customers had been through multiple suppliers year after year and had been let down with returns and rejections. With InTouch as our eyes and ears on the ground, we retained that business for 5 years without one single rejection or complaint.
Director of Operations, MMI Textiles
The speed that we get the reports is always good. We had an experience with some other inspectors where we had to wait an extra day to get the reports. Getting the report as soon as we can is very important, so we can make a decision and give feedback back to the factory.
Operations and Engineering Manager, Juku Gear
From beginning to end, InTouch is so easy to work with. The inspection report is literally there the next morning when I come into work. It really makes my job easier.
