Amada Miyachi America Completes ISO 9001 Recertification

Originally titled 'Company Completes ISO 9001 Recertification'

Amada Miyachi America Inc. has completed the ISO 9001 recertification process for its quality management system, reflecting the company’s commitment to providing high-quality, innovative products for customers.

Amada Miyachi America Inc., a manufacturer of resistance welding, laser welding, marking, cutting, and micromachining equipment and systems, has completed the ISO 9001 recertification process for its quality management system. The ISO 9001 certification reflects the company’s commitment to providing high-quality, innovative products for customers.

Amada Miyachi America Inc.’s quality management system is focused on manufacturing products to customer requirements. Required by many aerospace and medical customers, the policy forms the basis of the manufacturing quality and reliability package the company brings to the table.

As part of the recertification process, each manufacturing process and operation was validated, best methods were determined for each, and then guidelines were developed for ensuring the process would remain consistent and repeatable. Examples include redeveloping the company’s standard equipment for calibrating weld checkers so that improved accuracy on new devices could be assured. 

The ISO 9001 recertification process was integrated into the Define, Design & Deliver process, in which the team offers feedback on process feasibility and part design to maximize production reliability, and then deliver smart and innovative solutions tailored to functional requirements and budget.

“During the ISO 9001 recertification process, we did not want to simply check off boxes–we wanted to apply what we learned to make ourselves a better and more consistent company,” says Kevin Gunning, Amada Miyachi America Inc.’s director of quality, service and support. “The certification is a physical indication of our commitment to the concepts that form the basis of our quality management process. It offers our customers an assurance that they matter to us, and that we are doing our best to be the best in our industry.”
