Injection Molding Quality Standards

Sussex IM is committed to providing high-quality, injection molded parts to our customers. This commitment is demonstrated through our ISO 9001 and ISO 45001 certifications and dedicated team of quality personnel across all shifts. Detailed work instructions, personnel training, visual standards, and control documents ensure quality requirements are outlined and implemented for every step of the production process.

Along with document control and personnel training, Sussex IM invests in technology to provide additional metrology services to our customers. Recent quality equipment upgrades include a new Hexagon 7-10-7 Global Blue S high-speed scanning CMM. This new CMM allows for accurate measurements and the ability to process GD&T callouts. In addition, the CMM is outfitted with an Eye-D camera and offline programming capabilities.

These new capabilities allow for programming parts from CAD models before physical samples are produced and the ability to program automated routines which help eliminate operator error. Investing in technology and our continuous commitment to training and accountability allows for quality excellence in the accurate and consistent measuring of all parts produced at Sussex IM.

High-speed CMM

Our Hexagon 7-10-7 CMM uses constant contact scanning to measure parts based on a multitude of points compared to a limited number of points like other equipment. This leads to more accurate measuring and also performs more quickly than other equipment available.

Off-line Programming

Off-line programing allows for programming parts based on CAD models before physical parts are molded. This process saves time and can highlight any potential design issues before molds or parts are manufactured.
