Winegar, Inc is pleased to announce that we have been audited to meet the new ISO 9001-2015 standard. The new designation was effective as of March 09, 2017.
This was an extensive, in depth review of our quality systems, and procedures. We are proud of the concern for quality that is shown by our team, and shown in the workmanship of the product we produce.
In December we added a Mitutoyo Laser Scan Micrometer for our Quality Department; it increases our in house capabilities for gage pin calibration of the over 2500 calibrated gage pins in our lab.
It will also give us capability to measure small parts with a readout capability of 1 millionth of an inch.
Just in – On November 21st we finished installation of our new Toyoda Select G 100II cylindrical Grinder with Marposs Dual gauge heads for efficiency while holding consistent accuracy on tight tolerances.
We can now Grind parts up to 36 inches long , and up to nearly 12 inches in Diameter!
On May 23rd,2014 our NEW DMG-MORI SIEKI NVX7000 arrived. It began its first production work on June 9th.
This machine gives us a 24” X 60” work envelope with probing capabilities!
The first new machine in the 2013 addition is up and running. The 16 pallet Toyoda 630 MM Horizontal machining center is up and running it first parts.
We are participating in the South Central Tour of Manufacturing on October 26th with tours being given from 9:AM to 3:00 PM (Learn More)
With the addition completed, we decided to improve our employee parking area with a new 30,000 square foot paved parking area. The project should be completed by October 20th, 2013.
Congratulations to Paul Goettl, Director of Manufacturing and Jeff Sampson, Purchasing and Customer Service Department have both received their Six Sigma Green Belt certification after attending
Training provided through the International Quality Institute.
We have completed the cement work on our “extra heavy duty” floor. Final slab was poured 12-31-12 ! The floor is designed to hold increased sized and weight equipment as we expand our machining capabilities. Concrete in the floor is 12” + in thickness with two 5/8 mats of re-rod. The next three steps to be completed will be:
- Painting and fire suppression system in January.
- Electrical and permanent lighting in February,
- Be able to move some equipment into the new space in March 2013.
Pictured above is the progress being made on a new addition to the east side of the facility. The 20,000 square foot addition will enable Winegar to structure machining operations in a more “lean” configuration, as well as allow for more cellular operations with today’s larger machining centers. The addition will increase total square footage to over 120,000 square feet and enhance machining capacity and efficiency of future operations.
