QUALITY

At Amisco, perfection is not just something to aim for, but concrete result that is achieved every single day, thanks to constant controls and rigorous testing.

The tests that Amisco performs on 100% of its coils production are:


  • Electrical resistance
  • Surge test, or short circuit
  • Hypot test
  • Visual inspection

Some other parameters are inspected at 100% while others are randomly sampled, depending on the specific demands of the client or the critical performance of the product.

All inspections results are recorded and stored for use in calculating performance statistics that enable us to identify problems and intervene immediately to eliminate possible defects.

As part of this ongoing quest for perfection and the elimination of defects, Amisco is scrupulously attentive to the production process. Indeed, the final quality, and, most important, reliability of the product over time are inextricably connected to a production process that is always under strict control, where consistency and respect for instructions and work parameters are essential.

Latent defects can sometimes elude process control and turn out to be fatal during the life of the coil. For this reason , our line workers are trained to inspect their own work and to take responsibility for it. When in doubt, they can rely on our internal process control service under the direction of the Quality Control department, which constantly monitors production.

The application of parameters regarding the automotive industry and the ISO-TS 16949 norm are explicated in the preparation of PPAP upon having developed a new product (Process Flow, FMEA and control plan) Moreover, for some years now Amisco has been committed to responding to non-conformity claims within 24 hours. In addition we use the 8d module for non conformity management, from a formal standpoint as well as in terms of applying the methodologies connected to it.
