Hopwood Gears is an ISO 9001:2015 registered company. We have been ISO registered since 1995. We apply all the aspects of this approval to our complete offering from placing your order right the way through to the end product that you receive.
To ensure this, we emphasise quality throughout each step of our manufacturing process. This allows us to be as efficient as possible so that we are able to offer a competitive price to our customers.
Our main goal in production is to manufacture high-quality products with high productivity. This is guaranteed by three main factors: our people, our working practices and our processes.
We are continually investing in state of the art plant and equipment to maintain and improve our quality and to keep our competitive edge, and offer the latest techniques in production.
In each process of manufacturing, strict quality checks are performed at vital production points. These are essential components of the process route that we establish at Hopwood Gears.
First Class inspection service is offered using our state of the art inspection equipment.
FAIR and Inspection reports can be submitted with parts
CMM reports and Gear Analytics Reports (Gear Trace Graphs) can be issued with parts
Service and Aftercare
We continue high levels of quality through to our service and aftercare too.
When any part is ordered the necessary paperwork, job cards and inspection criteria are printed and issued with a unique job number. This number is then the key for all progressing, raising purchase orders, right through to final dispatching and invoicing.
Job cards are kept as a permanent record of that parts manufacture. If you require a repeat order then the details can be found and quickly assessed to enable commencement of production. This extensive inspection standard enables us to provide higher quality products than other gear manufacturers.
