The results from our research will ultimately be integrated into innovative new products. The development and engineering of new products is carried out with the latest 3D CAD-software. With simulation tools like Computational fluid dynamics (CFD), Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and mould flow analysis (MFA) we have a tremendous assessment capability at our disposal to create the right product.
The Quality Management System of Akatherm has been certified according ISO 9001.
The Akatherm quality assurance starts at the gate of the factory with the receipt of raw materials. Only raw material of approved quality is processed. Processing itself is checked regularly. The modern and computer-controlled production machines and systems are checked and set by qualified and experienced personnel to ensure that they always function optimally. This gives a continuous process monitoring system, the results of which are documented.
The settings of machines and the dimensional correctness of test pieces are checked carefully before production is commenced and adjustments are made if necessary. The dimensional correctness of the items produced, the setting data of the extrusion and injection moulding machines and the surfaces of the products produced are checked continuously and compared with the production specifications.
The final products are subjected to further tests. The results of these are laid down and documented in test memoranda. Only products which have been checked and released are transferred to the warehouse. When the checks laid down in the test memoranda have been carried out and documented, the final products are released for stockholding and dispatch. Precise instructions and regular checks ensure the proper storage of the products. Packing and dispatch are regulated internally in a precise manner.
