It Starts and Ends With Accuracy

An integral part of each TRI MODELS project is our Quality Control Program, which sets the standard for the industry. Using precision machinery coupled with our own commercially available Verisurf software, we inspect models for accuracy down to ½ of 1/1000th of an inch. Our certified Inspection Department analyzes and verifies complex contours, difficult shapes and close tolerances to ensure specifications are matched and your model performs as it should.

Technology is critical to the success of our Quality Assurance department. TRI MODELS consistently strives to be on the leading edge of inspection technology. Coordinate measuring machines (CMM) and leading edge inspection software (Verisurf) play an integral role in all aspects of a model program. We have five types of CMM's in house, including Browne & Sharp, Romer and FARO Arms, as well as a FARO laser tracker

TRI MODELS maintains and operates a Quality System based upon, and meeting the requirements of AS9100. We received AS9100-C certification in June 2012. In addition, TRI MODELS, Inc. has produced the Tri Models Quality Manual to ensure product and process integrity that is based upon ISO9001;2008 supplemented by SAE 2009-01; 1999-11. TRI MODELS has supplemented these documents to add unique requirements specific to our organization.

These documents, along with ‘product specific’ procedures developed and in place, ensure that we function in compliance with AS9100-C requirements as well as ANSI/ASOC 9001.

Our Quality Policies, as found in our Quality Manual define the procedures used to achieve the highest levels of quality and inspection documentation for fabricated hardware, including materials purchased, customer-received materials, receiving, controlled storage, certification and traceability, configuration control, fabrication inspection, non-conforming hardware control, corrective and preventive action, metrology control, handling, packing, shipping, training, and documentation.
