ZERO DEFECTS … THAT’S OUR BASELINE STANDARD
You expect every manufacturer to have a top-notch quality system. Schafer Gear Works exceeds those expectations. We make sure every gear or shaft we make is usable when it arrives on your shop floor.
Our manufacturing and quality assurance teams do not compromise on our processes. From the start, every job goes through a specification review to make sure we use the correct materials, dimensions, tolerances and applicable engineering standards. We execute your job using a rigorous verification process from first-piece to final inspections. Then we back it up with inspection reports for every work order from one piece to 1,000+.
Staying on the forefront of the latest available technology is important to us and to you. So we invest heavily in our manufacturing equipment and quality systems to keep the latest gear cutting, gear grinding and support equipment working on our floor. As a result, we meet your most stringent quality standards with IS0 9000:2015 and AS9100 certification.
However, you don’t have to be satisfied with that alone. We are leaders in gear and shaft quality because of these attributes, too:
HIGHLY SKILLED STAFF
Our management teams at both locations are trained in world-class quality systems and have countless hours of on-the-job training. With over 70 years of experience in quality control, we know when and how to make changes. We look at our systems with critical eyes and are always learning new ways to apply our knowledge. Because quality is a dynamic process, we believe in ongoing training and education.
CURRENT WITH CHANGES IN THE FIELD
Because we are members of many professional organizations, and are constantly training, we are able to keep you updated on the latest quality-related changes that impact you.
INTEGRATION WITH TECHNOLOGY
What good is great knowledge without great tools? Our quality department is always working hard to find the best software, the latest data-collection devices, extremely accurate measurement equipment and the most effective means of using technology to assure you that we are always prepared to build better, smarter and faster systems to meet your requirements.
