Quality control is an integral part of our CNC machining, water jet cutting, metal finishing and plating services. We operate an ISO 9001:2015 certified manufacturing facility in Amsterdam, New York and support a Kaizen 5S program for continuous improvement. Rayco is also a GE-qualified plater on critical-to-quality parts and maintains an in-house testing laboratory.
To maintain the highest quality during CNC machining, Rayco uses multiple quality control methods, including both automated and operator inspections. Machine tool probing systems attach directly to CNC equipment and inspect part quality during machining operations. By readily identifying and correcting errors, on-machine inspection actively reduces the number of defects.
Quality control is also a key step in the water jet cutting process. Speed control is one critical component to inspect. While low cutting speeds produce better edge quality, cutting speeds that are too low can have an increased kerf angle. By closely monitoring abrasive mixing, water jet stream diameter and nozzle height, our skilled operators can avoid parts with striations and rough edges.
As a GE-qualified plater for critical-to-quality parts, we have a thickness-based certification for each metal plating process. Our commitment to metal plating quality ensures that plated parts of all sizes and materials pass an infusion test and are free of blemishes.
As part of our commitment to sustainability, we comply with environmental regulations for each of our finishing processes. We analyze all chemicals at our full on-site testing laboratory to ensure proper treatment. This includes wet chemistry equipment for bit titrations, an analytical machine for measuring metallic concentrations in liquids, and an X-ray fluorescence machine for measuring metallic thickness and composition.
Rayco Of Schenectady Inc. strives to be a leader in the machining and protective finishing processes. Our focus is to provide quality parts, on time delivery and superb customer satisfaction. Our staff is constantly seeking ways to improve our products and processes to provide customers with the best possible services.
