The Quality Revolution Continues...



Business talks about quality, but how many companies truly embed quality into everything they do? Ultimately, achieving superior quality is everyone’s responsibility. Addressing quality at the “end-of-pipe” is too late.
 
Time and again a focus on quality has proven to result in tangible benefits: cost savings, cycle-time improvement, reduction in waste, fewer product defects, fewer product returns, greater throughput and productivity, less machine downtime, greater operational efficiency and utilization of natural resources, and so on.
 
Fostering a quality culture and embracing continuous improvement requires focus, commitment, and accountability from employees, vendors, and customers. Quality is as important in the actualization of a tightly toleranced component as it is in the 3D file and in the clarity of communications between the manufacturer and the customer.
 
A focus on quality and continuous improvement of quality is the foundation of profitable, respected, trusted, and sustainable businesses. This month’s Solutions Newsletter summarizes some of the ways in which Harbec aligns “purpose with process” to reinforce its quality culture within and among employees, vendors, and customers. Together we can all mutually benefit by continuing to advance the quality revolution.

Rheology is a multi-disciplinary science that incorporates fundamental physics and chemistry, as well as many facets of materials engineering. These relationships are so strong that the explanation and prediction of rheological properties is based on knowledge of molecular structure and fundamental laws of physics.Learn more in this month's article "Testing Plastics: Bridge the gap between industry process and material rheology"

3-D


New manufacturing technologies such as 3D printing are becoming more robust. The range of materials used within additive manufacturing technologies is expanding. So too are the tolerances and ability to maintain quality. As new tools and technologies such as 3D printing open up a new world of manufacturing opportunities it will be essential to ensure quality management  processes are in place. With its commitment to quality in everything that it does, Harbec has incorporated quality measurement and management protocols within its in-house 3D printing capabilities
