Our distinctive approach to quality is inherent in every step of the process. From initial program review to finished product on your shelf, we make certain your expectations are not only met, but exceeded. Here's what you can expect from your experience with PPM, from start to finish:
A thorough Pre-Production Analysis is essential to ensure parts will meet specification and necessary performance requirements. We review 3D Models and Prints with our staff engineers, quality, production and inspection teams. Details matter and getting things done right, the first time is our motto. We will help your team evaluate material selection, part design, gating locations, best tooling options from cavitation to cold/hot-runner selection, Mold-Flow analysis, FEA testing when necessary and anything else required to get your parts delivered perfectly.
Partner selection is critical, which is why we are partnered (contracted) with World-Class Manufacturer's both domestically & abroad in specialized manufacturing processes. Our Manufacturer's are certified from ISO9001, ISO13485/14001/22301, ITAR, AS9100, TUV, Cleanroom (Class 7/8/RNA free) and FDA Compliant to support your specific needs.

Inspections & Quality go hand-in-hand and are imperative to providing our customers with perfect parts. Thorough & sophisticated inspections keep timelines on track, our customer's final assembly running smoothly and most importantly, products in the field functioning as they were intended to for the lifespan the were designed for. Quality begins prior to production and is embedded throughout our process. From Pre-Production Analysis (PPA) to First Article Inspection (FAI) to our Production Part Approval Process (PPAP).
