Step 4 - Production
Once the customer is satisfied that the prototype hardware meets all of the functional and operational requirements, and all necessary qualification tests have been completed, we work to ensure a smooth transition to production level manufacturing. This includes the building of any tooling that might be required such as casting patterns, CNC tooling, test fixtures, and assembly fixtures. In addition, we will develop the necessary production and QA planning tools that might be required such as product and process FMEAs, Manufacturing Control Plans, FAIR’s, PPAP’s, and Acceptance Test Procedures.
All machined components are manufactured on state-of-the art, precision CNC equipment. For high volume jobs, we employ Statistical Process Control (SPC) techniques to ensure quality in every product we deliver. We also design, build and maintain our own test facilities necessary for completing any functional tests of our products, further ensuring the operational performance of every product we deliver.
“Cascon took a semi-developed oil pump we had hoped to complete in house, and refined it, engineered it, tested it, tooled it, produced it and supplied it. We've made thousands of transmissions to date and have not had a single pump related failure.”
