Our customers benefit from our ongoing investments in state-of-the-art processing and quality-control equipment. Digital testing instruments and furnace controls allow AMP to process and retain all critical data and assure customers of precise traceability and repeatability.
Providing our customers with quality heat treating has earned AMP the highest reputation as a specialist for high-volume parts in the transportation, military, and construction industries. As a direct supplier to the automotive industry, AMP achieved IATF 16949:2016 and ISO 9001:2015 certifications, as well as CQI-9 compliance. To meet these standards, AMP has invested in state-of-the-art computerized control systems and continuous monitoring to ensure the highest level of quality and traceability for our customers.
American Metal Processing carefully monitors all key process parameters and retains this data in our secure cloud-based database. All information is available to plant personnel on multiple monitors throughout the plant, as well as on mobile devices. Real-time alarms are used to alert key staff members when predetermined thresholds are crossed, ensuring rapid response to potential problems.
Whatever your needs are regarding hardness, case depth, or dimensional tolerances, we can meet them. Every order we process is subjected to rigorous inspection and testing. The AMP Metlab provides a number of services to ensure and certify product quality is within print specification. We include at no extra cost Rockwell surface and core-hardness testing, and total and effective case-depth measurement. We can supply full metallurgical reports and microstructural analyses upon request.
