Quality: A Mindset, not a Buzzword

0_dropcap_you can’t inspect quality into a part…but you can engineer quality into your manufacturing methods and processes. Horberg’s 80+ years of successful experience qualifies us to create and implement a total manufacturing approach that assures quality and uniformity at the most effective cost level. Management job-by-job concern and involvement from process development through final inspection ensures that precision manufacturing quality consistently meets or exceeds customer requirements.

As a supplier to the Aerospace and Medical industries, we feel a particular responsibility to embrace standards that will enable us to improve and excel at what we make and how we operate as a business. In that regard, we are especially proud that our Company’s Quality Management System (QMS) has been ISO9001:2015 and AS9100D registered since 2005. ISO9001:2015 is the international quality system standard and AS9100D is the premier quality system standard for aerospace (aviation, space and defense) companies. View our certificate.

From its inception in the
shipping department of
a machine tool company to becoming one of America’s
top suppliers of precision
pins, it’s clear that
precision has always been
in Horberg’s DNA.

Our calibration system is compliant with ISO10012:2003 and MIL-STD-45662 and our gauging system is fully traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Our inspection methods employ both modern analog and digital gauging systems and include real time Statistical Process Control (SPC) (activities that monitor a process in real-time to prevent defects) and Statistical Quality Control (SQC) (activities that occur post-process [e.g. additional inspection] to keep defects from escaping).

Our Company is also registered with the United States Department of State Directorate of Trade Controls (DDTC) in compliance with the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). View our registration letter.

When certification is required, we provide our customers with a complete set of documents that support the traceability of our products from raw material to completion, including compliance to the requirements of Dodd-Frank, Section 1502, Conflict Minerals, etc.
