Annual Usage: 13,000

Aerostar Manufacturing, situated in Romulus, MI, USA, epitomizes a steadfast dedication to excellence in both quality and efficiency. In our recent endeavor focusing on the production of “6K YOKE – KING PIN,” we uphold stringent standards to ensure precision and reliability across diverse applications. The manufacturing journey of this component has been intricately designed to uphold unparalleled quality standards, from the initial arrival of raw materials to the final dispatch of the finished product.

Our unwavering commitment to quality begins with the “Receive Material / Receive Inspection” phase, where materials undergo a meticulous visual inspection to verify product correctness and to mitigate any potential damage, contamination, or rust. Following material storage, machining operations are executed utilizing specialized tools and equipment, including milling machines, with each operation meticulously monitored to ensure adherence to quality control measures.

Quality assurance permeates every facet of our process, with various inspection methods such as attribute gauges, variable gauges, and Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMM) employed to scrutinize critical dimensions, surface finish, and other essential attributes of the part. Our “Zero Defects Allowed” policy underscores the rigor of our quality control measures, with any deviations triggering immediate supervisor notification and subsequent isolation of non-conforming products for further evaluation.

Our cutting-edge Product Structure by Item Report system, updated as of June 2023, offers a comprehensive overview of the streamlined manufacturing process for each 6K YOKE – KING PIN unit. This data-centric approach empowers us to maintain stringent control over our production lines, optimizing resource allocation while ensuring punctual deliveries.

Adhering to industry standards, our packaging process, exemplified in the “WIP Packing Instructions” stage, includes a final visual inspection to verify correct identification and the absence of visual defects. Each part is meticulously packed and prepared for shipping under the oversight of our Quality and Engineering Managers, ensuring the highest level of quality is maintained throughout.

This project underscores Aerostar Manufacturing’s unwavering commitment to delivering products of the utmost quality and reliability. Our exhaustive evaluation protocols and multi-layered inspection processes position us as an ideal manufacturing partner for industries that demand nothing less than excellence.

Project Overview

Quality, Inspection, and Measurement Steps

  • Receive Material: Visually inspect for correctness, damage, contamination, and rust. Store material in good condition.
  • Machine: Perform milling operations on the material.
  • Variable Gage Inspection: Inspect diameters, heights/lengths using variable gages and/or Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM). Inspect surface finish via attribute gauge. Visually inspect for obvious machining and casting defects.
  • Finished Material Storage: Store finished parts in good condition.
  • Pack: Pack finished parts per instructions.
  • Ship to Customer: Ship finished parts to the customer

Equipment and Tools Used for Quality and Inspection Tools

  • Variable gages
  • Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM)
  • Attribute gages
  • Visual inspection tools
  • Packing materials

These steps often intertwine with manufacturing steps to ensure a feedback loop exists between the production process and quality controls. Discrepancies detected during quality checks can lead to modifications in the manufacturing steps.

Manufacturing Steps

  • Receive Material: Visually inspect for correctness, damage, contamination, and rust. Store material appropriately.
  • Machine: Perform milling operations on the material.
  • In-process Inspection: Check for visual defects and dimensional accuracy during machining operations.
  • Deburring: Remove burrs and sharp edges from machined surfaces.
  • Finish Material: Perform any final processes required and store finished parts appropriately.
  • Packaging: Prepare parts for shipping according to packaging instructions.

Equipment and Tools Used for Manufacturing Steps

  • Milling machine
  • Manual clamps
  • Hydraulic controller and hoses
  • Hydraulic clamps
  • Pallets and plywood boards
  • Deburring tools (such as pencil grinder and manual deburring tool)

The steps in manufacturing are often revisited based on the results of the quality checks. For example, if an intermediate inspection detects an issue, the material may go back to the assembly stage.
