Quality

Quality control is just as important to Whiteley Brooks as it is to you, we have a fully equipped inspection department. This includes two three axis CMMs with motorised heads, consolidates the company’s commitment to quality providing full inspection reports and certification where required.

It is in line with this philosophy that Whiteley Brooks Engineering has its quality management system assessed and registered to ISO9001:2008. Our original assessment and certification was achieved in 1995. Our Quality Management System is audited by SGS.

Our full traceability service allows us to identify each individual procedure in the manufacturing process.

Our new purpose built inspection facility includes two state of the art Coordinate Measuring Machines and our new computer linked photographic microscope.

Both of our CMM machines have been re-furbished by Renishaw and now run Renishaw’s Modus Software enabling inspection to be performed against models created by most leading CAD Software Houses.
