Inspection and Calibration

In the manufacturing process, quality should always be more important than quantity. While there is sometimes a little bit of room for error with big equipment, that’s not the case when washers are being manufactured. That’s why the washers you purchase from Phoenix Specialty have to meet very exact requirements. And when the washer is less than an inch thick, there is absolutely no room for error.

While our washers are only a small part of your equipment, they will play an important role in the operation of it. Obviously, it’s not okay if they are too wide, too small, too thick, or too thin. But the size of the washer is only one aspect of our quality control. Washers also need to be made with the right mix of materials in order to ensure their long-term durability.

We Take Quality Seriously

We take quality seriously. We know how important it is to have the exact parts you need in order to build the perfect machinery or piece of equipment. That’s one of the reasons we have such a large selection of materials and grades available for our customers. And if you need something even more specialized, we’ll be glad to provide it for you. For example, you can order washers made with special materials or washers of an unusual size. We can also provide you with different grades of the materials you need in order to ensure they are perfect for the purpose you have in mind.

The quest for high quality starts with the raw materials. All the raw materials we store are both certified and traceable, and comply with DEFARS, REACH, AS9100, and other standards. Not only do we offer a variety of material choices for our customers but we will happily accommodate your special orders and requests. And whether you’re purchasing standard parts or custom orders from us, we focus on quality throughout the whole process from material to shipping. If you have any questions about our products, please don’t hesitate to give us a call so we can help you.
