It’s critical to have viable and reliable means of accurately verifying your manufactured products and manufacturing processes. One of the primary ways to accomplish that is via an in-depth evaluation of the first piece from your production run -- also called first article inspection. Perhaps you have no in-house metrology capability or that capability is overloaded. You may even want to have your in-house inspection verified. Always, you want to be sure that, if you're going to make it, you make it right! Q-PLUS provides exceptionally comprehensive and accurate First Article Inspections the way you need it, when you need it.
