Fiber Patch Placement – highest quality with seal of approval
The Fiber Patch Placement specialist Cevotec has underlined its commitment to high quality with the successful DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 certification. This accreditation covers the implementation of a quality management system that allows Cevotec to grow sustainably while continuing to offer its customers the high quality products and services they expect.
“Particularly in the aerospace industry, highest quality standards are an absolute MUST. This is in particular true for those high-performance composites which are produced on our systems”, explains Thorsten Groene, Managing Director of Cevotec. “With a certified quality management system, we not only fulfill the quality expectations of our customers, but also pursue systematically improvement potentials in our organization.”
“As developer and manufacturer of Fiber Patch Placement production systems, we at Cevotec had quality in our focus from the very beginning: the quality of our technical systems and software, but even more the quality of composite components produced with them. Now our team made their commitment to quality official with the ISO 9001:2015 certificate”, Groene continues.
“We place great importance on putting the requirements of the quality management into practice in our daily work, instead of having them exist only on paper,” adds Christian Fleischfresser, who as Operations Lead is responsible for the certification process. The QMS at Cevotec includes the planning, control and monitoring of value creation and development, structured supplier management, continuous process control and risk management. Also in focus: knowledge management. For a company in such a highly specialized field of business, having a structure that promotes the documentation and structured processing of knowledge is essential to continuous growth. “In this way, we ensure that the expert knowledge of our teams grows and can be shared at all times,” explains Fleischfresser.
“The ISO 9001 certificate reaffirms our promise to manufacturers of high-performance composites: our FPP systems enable the quality-controlled automation of their manual production”, concludes Groene.
Munich-based automation specialist Cevotec offers one of the world’s most advanced production systems for complex fiber composites. At the intersection of composites, mechanical engineering and software, Cevotec develops production systems and software based on Fiber Patch Placement (FPP) technology: SAMBA and ARTIST STUDIO. The systems, which are particularly suited for automated fiber placement on complex 3D geometries, process carbon fibers, glass fibers, adhesive films and other technical fibers. They can be used for a broad range of applications. Such flexibility is particularly appreciated by customers from aerospace and med-tech industries, who realize cost and time savings of 20%-60% when switching from manual processes to FPP.
