QUALITY & PERFORMANCE
On-time delivery and quality are automatic when information, documents and processes are controlled.
More often than not, it’s the hose that makes or breaks that end goal. Yet sometimes, the hose doesn’t get the respect it deserves. It does, however, at ProPulse. ProPulse has devoted significant time and brainpower on controlled performance resulting in a series of policies, procedures, technologies, and tests with the highest level of quality and performance.
Allowing for easier tracking and replacement, lot and batch traceability are built into the manufacturing process of every single hose. ProPulse’s proprietary PLC controlled automatic assembly lines and crimping technology are the most innovative and advanced machinery in North America; they support the low cost of throughput with very high-quality results.
Beyond that, day in and day out, ProPulse is continually monitoring, documenting and controlling every aspect of the manufacturing and assembly process.
I’d like to…
ProPulse is ISO 9001:2015 Certified
ISO 9001:2015 certification provides ProPulse the ability to enact growth, profitability as well as cost savings.
ProPulse rigorously vets all suppliers.
Outside suppliers are subject to stringent visits and on-site visits. All incoming shipments are counted, verified, inspected and documented by in-house quality assurance technicians.
Hose Lot Testing
Every lot of hose manufactured is inspected, tested and recorded.
Quality assurance technicians perform elongation, burst and leak tests to verify the hose is made to spec. In addition, technicians will diligently inspect the cover, layline, OD, ID and concentricity to ensure the highest-level of quality.
Each work ticket requires first piece inspection
During assembly, each work ticket requires first piece inspection, validation and approval before production can continue. Qualified personnel inspect the date stamp, crimp specs and hose length. Beyond that, technicians continually conduct out-of-box-audits.
After a box of assemblies has been packaged, box quantities, placards, labels, ties and overall condition is inspected by job title will go here and must approved before advancing to the loading dock.
