  • We Meet Strict Tolerances

CNC precision milling is all about achieving extremely tight tolerances and dimensions.  Parts produced by Montague often require tolerances to be held in the low tenths.  Quality control processes are essential to ensure that every component meets these demanding specifications. With rigorous in-process inspection and gaging, Montague can catch even the slightest dimensional deviations and make necessary adjustments.

  • Consistency in Production

Quality control is not a one-time process, but a continuous commitment to consistency and improvement. At Montague, maintaining uniformity across all processes is vital. Strict quality control systems help ensure that the first component is as precise as the last, maintaining product quality throughout the production process.

  • Waste Reduction

Precision milling often involves using high-value raw materials and any errors or defects can lead to significant material waste. Quality control helps identify and rectify issues early in the production cycle, reducing non-conforming product and saving money. In addition, Montague maintains all heat and lot information as raw material is processed through our plant.

  • Enhanced Reputation

A reputation for quality and precision can set a CNC precision milling company apart from its competitors. Montague Manufacturing is known industry wide for our commitment to quality, and our customers rely on us to deliver parts that meet their exacting specifications. Our emphasis on quality control not only ensures customer satisfaction, but often lead us to repeat business and positive word-of-mouth recommendations.

  • Preventing Downtime

Quality control measures help identify and address issues in real-time. This proactive approach minimizes the likelihood of unexpected shutdowns or process anomalies, reducing production downtime and maintaining delivery schedules.

  • Root Cause Analysis

In the event of a defect or deviation, quality control processes provide valuable data for root cause analysis. Understanding the source of the problem allows for process improvement and corrective actions, ultimately leading to higher-quality products. In addition, Montague values strong containment procedures to minimize risks to our customers.

  • Cost Efficiency

While investing in quality control may seem like an added cost, at Montague it is a long-term investment in cost efficiency. Detecting and rectifying issues early reduces the likelihood of expensive rework or scrapped components, ultimately saving money in the long run.

In conclusion, quality control is the backbone of Montague Manufacturing. It safeguards our customers, ensures compliance with industry standards, reduces waste, enhances precision, and ultimately leads to satisfied clients.
