The sample becomes the original
Prototyping and small series are becoming increasingly important
The MAX MOTHES QM process is exemplary.
Certified primary material that we use for prototypes or very small series is re-tested in accordance with our QM guidelines for your own safety. We perform a materials identification check using spectral analysis. This ensures that materials have not been mixed up before or during production. If the customer wishes, we go even further: in addition, we can examine the material used by means of ultrasound for invisible defects. This ensures that surprises do not happen later.
Our suppliers are also certified. We attach great importance to which certificates are presented to us, especially with partner companies in the sectors of press, turning and milling technology. Often enough, these are ISO 9001 certificates such as IATF 16949 or AD 2000.
The sample becomes the original, prototyping and small series are becoming increasingly important.
To be able to produce a product in large quantities, it must be checked in advance under which production conditions this can happen. Valid results of feasibility and efficiency calculations are necessary.
But often enough, our work starts much earlier. We develop individual pieces or very small series based on CAD drawings that we hand over to our customers for use in tests and other simulations. At this point, the experience of our application engineers comes into play, who, together with the engineers at the customer, ensure that the end result is a series product that meets all requirements and expectations.
Surface coating that leaves nothing to be desired.
Our customers receive any surface they want. We are proud of that and have been working on it for a long time. Within our network of German partners, many of them from the region, there is no procedure that we have not mastered.
And since we know that this high standard has to be checked again and again, every MAX MOTHES partner is audited regularly.
Not only does this enable us to take advantage of our location, more importantly, our network enables us to offer different variations of surface treatments for prototypes and trials (for example, differently set clamping moments for micro-encapsulated plastic coatings).
It comes down to the right documentation.
Anyone can create initial sample test reports. We go further: for customer projects, we create CAD drawings that are individually designed. This way, the customer can be sure that we always deliver consistently good quality regardless of geometry, surface or material.
Of course, we also take documentation in goods dispatch. In addition, and if necessary, we like to test our products with magnetic powder, dye penetrant or ultrasonic testing for the smallest cracks that are not visible to the naked eye.
Our deliveries are typically done with acceptance test certificates according to 3.1 of EN 10204, meaning we test in-house. For many customers with sensitive products, we are also happy to deliver with a test certificate to 3.2, meaning that external inspectors such as TÜV do the testing.
