“Being re-certified is an important step to show our customers and prospects that we are absolutely committed to the highest level of quality." - Michael Lynch, Vice President of Operations

If implementing new innovative machinery and being recertified to a vital ISO standard are on the annual checklist for premier etching companies, you could say 2012 was an industrious year. But what is the purpose of such improvements? More importantly, what do they mean to the loyal customers who help UWE maintain their status as one of the leading photochemical etching companies in the United States?
With customers in the aerospace, defense, medical, computer and optical fields, it is imperative that UWE remain at the peak of innovation. Customers require a specific service that demands a balance between performing intricately detailed workmanship and offering reasonable costs. In order to fulfill that need, constant improvements must be taken into consideration and knowledge of the field must continue to grow. Staying on top of current technology and continually integrating new equipment are vital ways of staying competitive in the current market place.
For upgrading quality control, UWE purchased a Micro Vu Video Comparator. Features include enhanced optical edge detection capability, various magnification levels for tight tolerance inspection and programmed automatic inspection for fast and accurate inspection. These qualities contribute to insuring that the process meets the accuracy of customer specifications.
During a recent vital audit held every three years for on-going certification, UWE’s current status of ISO 9001:2008 was re-certified. ISO 9001:2008 is a recognized International Standard.
“Being re-certified is an important step to show our customers and prospects that we are absolutely committed to the highest level of quality,” commented Michael Lynch, Vice President of Operations.
