Quality Assurance

 

Southeastern Tool and Die operates two (2) CMM’s (Coordinate Measuring Machines) with an accuracy of 0.0001”. We utilize a full CNC-controlled CMM and a manually operated CMM.

The Hexagon Metrology 7.10.7 SF is a rugged and robust measuring machine and measures 710mm in X, 101mm in Y, and 680mm in Z. (This 27.9" in X, 39.7" in Y, and 26.7" in Z.)

                                                                           

We also operate a mobile FARO Arm where we can measure at the machine or at a customer’s facility or job site. Our FARO Arm operates Cam 10 technology and can output .iges files for reverse engineering of parts. Unlike the CMM, the FARO Arm can be moved easily and still provide a full 3D measurement of parts with a 0.001" accuracy.

The Faro Arm is a portable coordinate measuring (CMM) that allows manufacturers easy verification of product quality by performing 3D inspections, tool calibrations, CAD comparisons, dimensional analysis, reverse engineering, and more.

ITAR Compliant

ITAR Compliant – International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) control the export and import of defense-related articles and services on the United States Munitions List (USML). These regulations implement the provisions of the Arms Export Control Act (AECA), and are described in Title 22 (Foreign Relations), Chapter I (Department of State), Subchapter M of the Code of Federal Regulations.

The Department of State Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) interprets and enforces ITAR. Its goal is to safeguard U.S. national security and further U.S. foreign policy objectives. The related Export Administration Regulations (Code of Federal Regulations Title 15 chapter VII, subchapter C) are enforced and interpreted by the Bureau of Industry and Security in the Commerce Department.

The Department of Defense is also involved in the review and approval process. Physical enforcement of the ITAR; and all import and export laws of the United States is performed by Homeland Security Investigations Special Agents (formerly U.S. Customs) under Immigration and Customs Enforcement, an agency of the Department of Homeland Security. Additionally, Customs and Border Protection Officers, also under the Department of Homeland Security, inspect imports and exports at U.S. Border Crossings and International Airports and enforce import and export regulations.

For practical purposes, ITAR regulations dictate that information and material pertaining to defense and military related technologies (items listed on the U.S. Munitions List) may only be shared with U.S. Persons unless authorization from the Department of State is received or a special exemption is used. U.S. Persons (including organizations) can face heavy fines if they have, without authorization or the use of an exemption, provided foreign persons with access to ITAR-protected defense articles, services or technical data

FFL Licensed

Federal Firearms License (FFL) is a license in the United States that enables an individual or a company to engage in a business pertaining to the manufacture or importation of firearms and ammunition, or the interstate and intrastate sale of firearms

ATF Registered

Registered with the Alcohol, Tobacco; and Firearms department for the repair or production of small and large arms for civilian and Military use. This is a special license needed to produce suppressors and silencers for firearms.

DOT compliant

We are capable of repairs and production of trailers and equipment capable of use on the US highway system. We can repair, modify, or create trailers for any use on the national highway system.

ISO Registered

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is an international standard-setting body composed of representatives from various national standards organizations. This means we “Say what we do”, “Do what we say”’ and “Prove it” by external audits of our Quality Management System on a regular basis.

ISO, the International Organization for Standardization, is an independent, non-governmental organization, the members of which are the standards organizations of the 163 member countries. It is the world's largest developer of voluntary international standards and facilitates world trade by providing common standards between nations. Nearly twenty thousand standards have been set covering everything from manufactured products and technology to food safety, agriculture and healthcare.

Use of the standards aids in the creation of products and services that are safe, reliable and of good quality. The standards help businesses increase productivity while minimizing errors and waste. By enabling products from different markets to be directly compared, they facilitate companies in entering new markets and assist in the development of global trade on a fair basis. The standards also serve to safeguard consumers and the end-users of products and services, ensuring that certified products conform to the minimum standards set internationally.
