Our experienced Project Engineers and skilled Fabrication Team work closely together to ensure that a high level of quality is assured throughout the manufacturing process. Due to the safety critical nature of fabrications we produce for the access engineering industry, Craig Engineering have always been involved in ensuring product safety, and the high level of quality assurance that this demands.
At Craig Engineering, we pride ourselves on a high level of good workmanship throughout the manufacturing process, whether this be the finished tolerances of the fabrication, or the finished weld quality and appearance itself.
If a fabrication requires Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) as part of the quality assurance requirements, we can arrange for this service to be carried out ‘in-house’, by an independent third party NDT specialist. Physical load testing can also be written into the quality assurance procedures, if necessary; which can be endorsed by provision of load test certification, relevant to the manufacturing Design Standards.
From 1st July 2014 all structural fabrications must meet the harmonised European Standard BS EN 1090 and carry the CE mark. Craig Engineering increased its investment in both Personnel and Quality Control Systems, to ensure that it achieved accreditation accordingly, and it continues to develop and improve its quality procedures and processes; all of which are assessed annually, by an independent consultant.
CE certification provides evidence of a suitable Factory Production Control (FPC) System, which ensures traceability of materials and processes from source, through the fabrication process, and finally on to the release of goods at the factory door.
BS EN 1090-3 (Technical requirements for aluminium structures) requires that for any structural project, the required quality of fabrication, i.e. Execution Class, must be specified. This determines the level of quality required within the fabrication process, according to the nature of the application.
Craig Engineering can supply aluminium fabrications up to and including, Execution Class 2.
