Quality control 
12We are commited to the quality management system according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2008 since 1998 and involved the research and development department into the audit since 2011. Our subsidiary VACOM bvba is included since 2012.

Further certifications:
  • Certification of our welding processes according to DIN EN ISO 3834-2 by the German Welding Society DVS (Deutscher Verband für Schweißen und verwandte Verfahren e.V.)
  • Environmental Management System according to QuB by LGA Intercert
  • GOST-R Certificates for selected product groups

Our certifications are available for download.

The quality control is integrated into the whole production process and goods flow. At the beginnning, the incoming goods control in accordance to the inspection plan and the documentation via ERP system take place. Either a 100%-control or a sample check is made for all goods receipts in accordance to specifications and depending on agreements with suppliers and sub-contractors as well as provided inspection protocols.

The quality control is integrated in all production stages in the production and is carried out according to the functionality of the component. After every single production stage a qualified worker self control is performed.

All welded components and assemblies are Helium leak tested down to 1 • 10-9 mbar l/s. For higher demands we offer to check to  < 1 • 10-10 mbar l/s and 5 • 10-11 mbar l/s. Hereby, the higher costs have to be considered. The measurement results are recorded and archived. We can generate a log for you on request.

The quality control checks all products in the final check according to the inspection plan.
The following testing equipment is available for the quality control:

  • He-leakage-detector
  • Foerster probe
  • Geiger-Müller counter
  • Measuring microscope       
  • Surface roughness measuring device
  • 3D-coordinate measuring machine
  • Hand-held measuring device (calipers, outside micrometer, thread gauges, feeler gauge etc.)

All relevant measuring instruments are subject to a defined calibration cycle, the monitoring is carried out by an external certified calibration laboratory.
