PLAIN CITY, Ohio (CitizenWire) — Ohio Laser LLC announced today that it has received ISO 9001:2008 certification and installed a new advanced 3D laser scanning system, two crucial steps toward achieving world-class quality control of laser cut parts and fabricated metal parts in production. Companies that require quality control (QC) inspection, first article inspection and high quality repetitive processing will benefit from the new certification and technology at Ohio Laser. ISO9001:2008 combined with the new scanning equipment will greatly enhance Ohio Laser’s current ability to provide laser cutting, tube cutting and value added fabricating services including engineering with 2D, 3D CAD/CAM drawings, PPAP Level I to Level IV, GMAW welding, FCAW welding and GTAW welding, bending, machining, heat treating and finishing, water jet cutting services, and sanding and grinding.
In tandem with ISO 9001:2008 certification, the 3D laser scanning system at Ohio Laser gives customers peace of mind with a 100% inspection regime throughout the entire forming / assembly process. The laser scanning equipment also improves manufacturing efficiencies by nearly eliminating scrap, re-work and re-scheduling due to parts being out of spec.
ISO 9001:2008 certification by the International Organization for Standardization requires companies to keep detailed records, manage sets of procedures covering key processes in the business, quality-check production output, regularly review individual processes and the quality system for effectiveness, and promote continual improvement. The product development phase in an ISO 9001:2008-certified company must include testing and documentation at each stage. This testing must ensure that products meet regulatory and design requirements and of course, customer needs.
The 3D laser scanning system at Ohio Laser can process objects up to 48″ x 48″ in a single scan. Most importantly, operators can use a quick multiple scanning process to “merge” parts of infinite length and up to twice the width of the 1220mm x 1220mm (48″ x 48″) scan table. For reverse engineering services, the scanning system can measure any flat or opaque part. Other tolerances include laser scanning parts up to 8″ (200mm) thick, with a weight of up to 200 lbs (90 kg).
