Quality at Javelin Plastics

Javelin Plastics is approved to BS EN ISO 9001:2008. Our quality processes and procedures have been approved against the rigorous standards laid down by our customers. Statistical process control is employed as a norm across the factory floor, using the latest SPC software to increase our ability to monitor dimensional conformity.

Javelin has 3-axis coordinate measuring machines, which are able to print out dimensional reports as required. The focus is about taking quality back to the machine, following a philosophy of defect prevention rather than defect detection.

CNC optical non-contact measuring equipment, Minolta digital colour measurement devices and raw material moisture content analysers are used routinely every day. The former is used for measuring tiny features, including depths, by the use of light reflection. Material moisture content analysers enable the checking of moisture content of material prior to use, ensuring it is in optimum condition.

Everybody at Javelin is responsible for quality and all operators are involved in the quality process through formal monitoring of component attributes. A work-pack for each component is produced at Javelin, consisting of digital images of the component, plus attribute check charts.
