Diamond Tool's quality system is designed to assure that services and supplies manufactured at Diamond Tool or at our supplier's facilities are subject to adequate quality control to ensure customer satisfaction. Our system is designed to provide for early detection of discrepancies and afford positive corrective action. Our system encompasses identification, receipt, stocking, and the entire process of manufacturing, machining, fabrication, packaging, storage, and shipping. <
FIRST ARTICLE INSPECTION
First piece on each operation, during in-process is documented by the machinist on DTI Form 111, then verified and documented again on DTI Form 100 by Quality Assurance. If a problem is found by Inspection, the job will be shut down until correction is made and any discrepant parts will be scrapped or corrected as necessary.
Complete First Article layouts are also performed with ballooned blueprints when required to customer's specifications on DTI Form 103, or Form AS9102.
IN PROCESS INSPECTION
In-process inspections will be performed and measured results documented at a 1.5% AQL by the machinist continuing on DTI Form 100 until job is complete to provide early detection of any nonconforming parts.
The Quality Manager will be responsible for obtaining appropriate corrective and follow-up action to prevent recurrence of discrepant parts or material.
Parts and materials shall be inspected upon receiving on our dock and results documented on DTI Form 102.
They shall be inspected for size, quantity, and heat lot number. Then the results are compared to certifications, test reports, and packing slips. The inspection form will indicate acceptance or rejection.
Parts and/or materials which are nonconforming shall be marked and/or tagged in a secure fashion identifying them as nonconforming, at which time a Discrepant Material Report on DTI Form 116 shall be completed and submitted to the purchasing department who is then responsible for obtaining a Corrective Action Report from the supplier.
Any nonconforming parts produced in house will be identified on DTI FORM 108 and segregated from the normal flow of finished parts and rechecked prior to shipment. This form must be signed off by Q. C. before shipment to customer.
ASSEMBLY INSPECTION AND/OR FUNCTIONAL TEST
Assembly inspection and any functional testing required by contract, or any other tests required to ensure product quality will be performed.

All nonconforming parts or assemblies will be identified and moved to a segregated area.
FINAL INSPECTION AND TEST
Final inspection and tests will be performed at AQL of 1.5% or 100% or on a sample basis, whichever is applicable and documented on DTI Form 104. If source inspection is required on the purchase order the customer will be notified prior to final inspection.
Inspection and test records will be maintained, and made available for review at the request of the customer.
All nonconforming material will be identified, tagged, and segregated from the normal flow of finished material and documented on DTI Form 108.

Rejected material subjected to any repair will be resubmitted to final inspection for verification of the adequacy of the rework on DTI Form 108.
Inspection records will include: the number of pieces accepted, number rejected, date of inspection, and identification of the inspector.

Some are sent out to Gage calibration specialists (Gage Blocks) and some are done in house (calipers.) This includes company as well as personal employee owned gages.
When required, measuring and test equipment will be made available for use by any Government Representative to determine conformance of product with contract requirements. In addition, personnel shall be made available for operation of such devices for verification of their accuracy and condition.
