Supplier Problem Resolution

Splits, wrinkles, high scrap rates? Let the experts at Engineering Quality Solutions identify the root cause solution for you.

Is it a manufacturing problem or a materials issue? The material supplier says it’s a manufacturing issue, and the part manufacturer claims it’s bad material. Engineering Quality Solutions can help resolve the dispute by being the Problem Resolution Arbitrator. When both parties agree to let Engineering Quality Solutions be the impartial source to find the root cause solution, finger pointing ends and both companies win.

Engineering Quality Solutions has the unique combination of experience in manufacturing, metal forming and materials to deliver answers for all of your problems.


Material Selection and Optimization

In today’s cost and quality competitive world, it is imperative to use the most cost effective materials solution for each application, realizing the different demands that are put on each part – considering formability, corrosion, durability, stiffness, and cost.  Our experts can help guide you to the optimal solution for your needs.


Source Approvals

Before materials producers get to sell their sheet metal to manufacturers, their product must meet engineering requirements that typical include tensile, welding, and painting characteristics.

Engineering Quality Solutions has worked with several off-shore international materials suppliers to help them gain engineering and technical approval from worldwide manufacturers.

We understand the base metal and coating testing requirements for the approval of a variety of materials and manufacturers, and have the experience and expertise to get the tests done.
