First U.S. Fabricator Certified
SEC was the first American PCB fabricator to achieve IATF 16949 Certification. IATF 16949:2016 is an ISO Technical Specification, which aligns existing U.S., German, French, Japanese, and Italian automotive quality system standards.
IATF 16949 Common Language
ISO 9001, upon which IATF 16949:2016 is based, encourages process-based approach resulting in a common language that improves understanding of quality requirements and makes implementation and maintenance of the system easier.
Benefits to non-Automotive
While this is an automotive standard, its application is on a global basis within the manufacturing operation. Therefore, every SEC customer directly benefits by incurring a lower total purchasing cost:
- Lower purchase prices as the manufacturer should be running at a lower in-process defect rate
- Lower costs associated with line down issues as late product receipts will be dramatically reduced
- Lower reject rates at end of line associated with defective products from IATF 16949 certified supplier
