Quality Policy

MANAGEMENT MANIFESTO

LEADERSHIP COMMITMENT

The fundamental responsibility for quality and product safety is the responsibility of the management. They decide upon the quality policy and targets and initiate strategies for the achievements of those goals. Any thereby necessary financial and human resources will be supplied. In order to satisfy the continuously increasing market demands, our quality policy combines corporate, product-related and higher-ranking targets. These are worked out by the management team at the beginning of the year and permanently reviewed and published on a noticeboard for every employee to see. It is the quality principle of the Flaig + Hommel Group to continuously improve processes through the ideas and actions of all employees in order to satisfy the requirements and wishes of our customers. This is achieved by so called CIP (continuous improvement process) projects. The progress and results of these projects are visualised and published on the information boards for all employees to see.

QUALITY POLICY

The F+H Group’s company policy is devised by the management team. It is regularly reviewed concerning adequacy and efficiency as part of the management review and where necessary revised.

It takes into account customer expectations and requirements, their fulfilment and safeguarding. It also oversees the introduction, implementation and upkeep of all legal requirements and those stated by our QM-system.

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

FLAIG + HOMMEL RESEARCHES
FOR SAFETY AND QUALITY

Flaig + Hommel is extremely innovative in the cold-forging and lock-nut sector and holds numerous patents. Within the framework of Simultaneous Engineering (SE) our construction department develops products according to customer specification. Applying the finite elements method (FEM) and working with Pro Engineer, ideas turn into cold-forgeable components.

First tests of the tools developed in our own tool shop are carried out on test presses. If necessary, the tools may then be modified and improved. Press-tests with different materials (i.e. steel, aluminium, non-ferrous metals…) are carried out and tool life is continuously tested. Challenge us and we’ll show you what cold-forging can do.
