Quality Systems & Processes
Hi-Standard has been assessed by Eagle Registrations Inc. and conforms to ISO 9001:2015. The ISO accreditation means that our quality management systems meet the standards set forth by the ISO. There are around 24,000 International Standards that are all included in the ISO Standards catalogue. ISO standards are agreed upon by international experts. These experts specialize in their subjects or field and can include manufacturers, sellers, buyers, customers, trade associations, users or regulators. ISO experts who know our needs have determined the best ways and processes to manufacture and test the screw machine parts of Hi-Standard to ensure the best quality for our clients. As part of our processes to ensure quality for our Brown & Sharpe and Swiss CNC screw machining products, we use the GAGEtrak Calibration Management Software and a DBA Small Business Program Manager.
The GAGEtrak Calibration Management Software is the world’s #1 Calibration Management Software for the past 30+ years. GAGEtrak has improved product quality for over 15,000 facilities worldwide and continues to grow. This software helps us to maintain compliance with international quality standards, such as ISO. As each of the parts that we produce are components in larger tools or products, they require adherence to exact specifications to ensure that they fit perfectly with other components. Working hand in hand with our calibration management software is our DBA Small Business Program Manager, which helps keep the manufacturing programs and activities organized for our company. By having our programs and activities organized, this supports keeping the company’s strategic direction in line, as well as our long-term goals. Thus, keeping HI-Standard and our products at peak quality.
You can rely on Hi-Standard to provide the highest quality parts that you need. Our parts can be used in many applications and industries, including hand tools, medical, and automotive. Our processes and experience have led to a steady growth since our establishment in 1946 due to word-of-mouth referrals.
