SUPERIOR QUALITY CONTROL
IPD is known industry-wide for high quality parts and excellent service. Our goal is to create consistent and positive interactions with our distributors and their customers from start to finish, as well as offering reliable support after the sale. This starts by manufacturing IPD brand parts from high quality materials, ensuring that each part has the correct specification and tolerances, and has gone through a rigorous quality control process. Our attention to detail and quality truly makes IPD stand out from our competition. Listed below are just a few examples of how IPD ensures quality control, and takes the necessary steps to produce top of the line products.
HOW OUR QC PROCESS WORKS
We produce our products from concept to execution. Our process begins with a drawing that ensures the verification of exact specifications and tolerances, as shown in a sample drawing of an inspection of a natural gas application piston.
Quality control of all IPD aluminum diesel and natural gas pistons includes ultrasonic bond and critical dimension checks through the use of CMM and hand measuring equipment.
Cylinder liner dimensional control includes dozens of critical specifications, including inside and outside dimensions, flange specifications, and o-ring groove size checks, which is accomplished through tools such as a CMM, height gauge, hardness testor, and surface analyzer.
Valves, guides, seats and springs are all critical items in heavy duty engines that require extra care. Our valve inspection program includes checking vital measurements such as valve angles, not to mention the critical metallurgies used today.
