Quality Assurance

Quality control takes place in new, state-of-the-art measuring rooms. The equipment of the measuring rooms and the climatic measurement conditions (temperature fluctuations <0.2 K in 24 hours, constant humidity level at 40%) allow a repeatability of measuring results in the µm range.

The measuring rooms are equipped with four ZEISS coordinate measuring units and a Wenzel gear measuring unit. Form and position measurement on cubic and rotation symmetrical components up to 5 tons, measuring of rotors, gears and special profiles, hardness, surface as well as air and sound level measurements are executed by highly qualified staff.

Internal acceptance procedures of KAPP NILES machines ensure their functionalities prior to delivery. The entire machine geometry and movements of all machine axes are tested. Newest laser technologies measure and optimize our machine axes allowing the machine to grind within the µm range. The machine check is documented and archived. A pre-acceptance report is compiled and provided to the end customer.

KAPP NILES established an internal as well as an external claim management within its quality assurance program in order to identify potential weaknesses early and increase satisfaction. In cooperation with individual departments and suppliers, the KAPP NILES quality control staff is tasked to implement appropriate measures to prevent errors, to monitor them and to successfully bring them to a close.

Quality Management System

We have concentrated us for you on efficient production processes and high accuracy. Our aim is to improve continuously our processes and therefore our products. From our Quality Management System, we expect not only the simple elimination of errors, but finally the prevention of these.

Continuous quality improvement and cost optimization are not inconsistent for us. The KAPP NILES Quality Assurance optimizes and creates new process flows of our machine production according to the principle of process-oriented quality management. Other departments will be supported by the introduction of new processes.

The development, production and sales of grinding and dressing tools is certified according to the DIN ISO 9001: 2008.

Our subsidiary KAPP ASIA TECHNOLOGIES (JIASHAN) CO. LTD certified the production of grinding tools, gears and rotor profiles according EN ISO 9001:2008.
