We are continuing our series of articles discussing producing parts for the defense industry. Our previous article covered the first step which is identifying the need for precision CNC machining. Today, we will look at more steps in the process.
Engage a Qualified Machine Shop
There are many contract manufacturing providers who offer precision CNC machining services, but not all of them have experience with defense industry parts. First and foremost, the provider you engage should be an ISO 9001 / AS 9100 certified machine shop. JW Machine meets this standard, which establishes and assures the implementation of critical quality control measures throughout the entire manufacturing process. This helps ensure the end products meet or exceed most standards required by the defense industry.
Work with the Machine Shop to Design the Part
If you do not already have a design, then the next step in the process is designing the part. The prototypes to production manufacturing process involves creating a working design based on your specifications. It will be important to communicate your vision and requirements clearly so that there is no miscommunication during the prototype design process.
Our next article will continue to discuss the process of producing defense industry parts.
