CHICAGO—Accurate Screw Machine (ASM), a division of MW Industries, Inc., recently received certification to the aviation, space, and defense quality standard, AS9100 Rev. C, for its Fairfield, New Jersey manufacturing plant. The high quality standard is supported by the International Aerospace Quality Group, (IAQG) and is based on the ISO 9001 quality management system.
“Certification to the demanding standards required by AS9100 proves our commitment to the aerospace market,” said Chris Thomas, vice president and general manager, Accurate Screw Machine, in a company release. Thomas said ASM customers can expect to receive superior product conformity and reliability, highly accurate documentation, and streamlined processes compared to non-certified suppliers. Ultimately, waste is reduced and overall costs are lowered by utilizing suppliers who are AS9100 certified. “AS9100 certification is a requirement to remain in and to grow within the aerospace and defense markets,” said Thomas. “Our customers asked us to do this and we listened.”
Accurate Screw Machine has been manufacturing custom electronic hardware, fasteners, and precision machined components for the aerospace and general industrial markets for over 50 years. The company reports that it excels at rapid prototyping and design of hard-to-make products made from specialty materials. Its success is built on custom product designs with short production runs within narrow delivery windows.
Accurate Screw Machine is one of four MW Industries companies that have earned AS9100 certification.
“With this successful achievement, Accurate Screw Machine joins Atlantic Spring, Capital Spring, and Helical Products as certified manufacturing facilities within the MW family of brands,” said John Bagnuolo, chief executive officer of MW Industries.
