Rockland Manufacturing - quality control checks and dock audits

If you haven’t heard, we’re committed to delivering nothing but the best at Rockland Manufacturing. But we don’t just talk a big game; we’re all about backing it up, too. That’s why we’re meticulous about our quality control checks and dock audits. From the first step of receiving raw materials to the final inspection before shipping, we leave no stone unturned. Join us as we dive into why these checks and audits are so crucial. Because when it comes to what we deliver, excellence is non-negotiable. 

Quality control checks

Quality control checks are the backbone of our production process, ensuring that each product meets our stringent standards before it ever leaves our facility. From the moment raw materials arrive at our facility to the final stages of production, every step of the process is subject to meticulous scrutiny with quality control checks such as:

  • Material certification and tracking: Every piece of material is certified and serial number tracked to ensure it meets our standards for material properties, tolerances, and cut quality.
  • Dimensional accuracy and weld quality: Our products undergo checks at multiple stages of production to verify dimensional accuracy, weld quality, and fitment of components, ensuring they meet our exacting standards.
  • Operational testing: Before shipment, each product is cycled through its full range of motion and tested for operational efficiency to guarantee peak performance in the field.

Dock audits: The final assurance step 

Before any product leaves our facility, it undergoes a thorough “dock audit”—a final assurance step to ensure it meets our stringent criteria.

During this stage, our team conducts a comprehensive assessment to guarantee that each product meets our high standards of quality excellence. This includes:

  • Final fit and finish assessment: We inspect every product thoroughly, making sure it not only performs flawlessly but also meets our high aesthetic standards. Every detail matters, from the quality of welds to the paint finish.
  • Hydraulic inspection: Many of our products rely on hydraulic systems, so we give them a thorough assessment to validate their performance and reliability. Our experts put them through rigorous testing to ensure that each system operates smoothly and efficiently, no matter the task at hand.
  • Verification of included component parts: We double-check every component to ensure that nothing is missing and that each part meets our quality standards. This attention to detail ensures that our customers receive a complete and reliable product every time.
  • Packaging inspection and securing for transport: Before your product hits the road, we make sure it’s securely packaged for transit. We understand the importance of ensuring everything arrives in perfect condition, so we take extra care to protect your investment during shipping.
