The Instrument Division’s business is truly a job shop environment with normal order quantities of 10, 20, or 50 units with multiple components. This product mix requires constant changes or set-ups on CNC equipment; the low volumes require 100% check of critical dimensions at the machine. The concentration of effort in this business is in the areas of consistent machine set-ups and high quality efficient production on the back shifts. All instrument equipment and processes are validated for IQ, OQ, PQ.
