Quality Assurance

Quality Assurance (QA) is a set of defined processes for systematic monitoring and evaluation to assure product quality.

Quality Control

Quality Control (QC) is the process of confirming that the product meets the specifications. It includes the checking and testing of manufacturing procedures as well as the final products. The results from these tests are compared with a set of defined acceptance criteria. By carrying out QC testing during manufacturing, defects can be identified in a timely manner, allowing for the product flaw to be rectified and if required, adjustments to be made in the manufacturing process to prevent further defective output.

In welding, QA/QC plays a vital role in ensuring sound and reliable welds are produced and in minimizing rework.

The dry ice blasting process was used to clean up soot and carbon contaminated surfaces bringing it back to pre-disaster condition. Through the expert support of Red-D-Arc’s Dry Ice Blasting Team the customer was able to compress cleaning time-frames and complete the project in less than a week enabling the critical service delivery infrastructure to get back to the educational community in a short period of time.

An Industry In Distress

The manufacturing industry is in distress. There is a shortage of skilled talent and this gap is only widening.
