Quality is Paramount ISO 9001:2008 Registered Quality System
NSF International Strategic Registrations, Ltd. has assessed the quality management system of Putnam Machine Products and certified it to be compliant with ISO-9001:2008 (2015_ISO9001-2008 CERTIFICATE).
In addition, Putnam Machine Product’s documented Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) is compliant with the automotive standard TS16949 quality management system.
Key Aspects of Putnam’s Quality Management System
The Putnam Machine Products metrology lab is equipped with the latest in precision measurement technology to reduce variability and inspection while improving overall component quality in a quest for zero defects.
Automated, High-Accuracy Coordinate Measuring Machine
A Brown & Sharp® Excel UHA DCC CMM system utilizing PCDMIS Curves and Surfaces software provides consistent three-dimensional measurement, documentation, and recording at accuracies approaching the sub-micron range (< 0.001mm).
Optical Profile Automatic Gauging Systems
Hommel Opticline Contour 810 and Brown & Sharp® Profile CCD/Optical Gauging Systems automate the measurement of cylindrical workpieces up to Ø100mm by 810mm long. Measurements of all external characteristics, including diameters, angles, lengths, radii, threads, run-outs, and geometric tolerances can be made in seconds with accuracies approaching.000080 inches (0.002mm).
Z-Mike® Laser Micrometers
Diameters up to Ø2.00″ may be verified quickly within .000040 inch accuracy and .000010 inch resolution.
Thousands of Standard & Specialized Gages
Putnam maintains a large complement of gages and instruments for verifying the size, form, and surface finish of virtually any geometric part feature. Instrument and gage calibration schedules and status is monitored by a gage control system incorporating GAGEtrak® software. Calibration standards are traceable to the National Institute for Standards and Testing (NIST). Quality technicians are fully trained in the proper use of all precision measuring instruments.
