We then generate a report which provides evidence that the dimensional specifications, as stated by the customer in CAD or design drawing, have been complied with.
If we cannot make it impossible for the error to occur in the first place then our operators use poka-yoke devices to 100% inspect components during the production process. This enables them to continuously improve and consistently produce correct parts. Our poka-yokes provide automatic production machinery shutdown, therefore ensuring that the error is corrected prior to production starting up again.
At Bolyer, we are committed to supplying components and assemblies to the highest quality. Our team is experienced in delivering a quality service by working within customer required frameworks such as APQP, PPAP and MSA.
We have been TS16949 approved since 2006 for our quality management system. Prior to that Bolyer were quality accredited to ISO9000 since 1994.
