Quality

Washington Machine Works takes great pride in making quality parts the first time, every time. We have a quality system, rigorous inspection procedures and calibrated test equipment.

Quality Manual

Our quality system covers all aspects of making your part from confirming the specifications to inspecting materials as they arrive and inspecting the parts when they are done.

Our top goal is making sure your parts meet your needs.

Inspection Procedures

We work with three levels of inspections depending on the needs of your project.

Calibrated Test Equipment

All our test equipment is calibrated to recognized international standards on at least an annual basis.

Document Control

Each drawing and other document is stored with your job file. Job files are stored for at least seven years. We verify your parts are made to the most recent versions of your drawings.
