Our customers trust and rely on Fuji Bakelite’s quality. To continue to maintain that trust, we have adopted a “Defect-free policy” to ensure “100% customer satisfaction.” Our manufacturing lines strive for “zero defects” by recording each job to confirm the prescribed procedure is followed. Our quality control is based on “Own-process Completion,” which means quality is built into each process to ensure no defects proceed onto the next stage. Introducing state-of-the-art equipment in inspection and evaluation, we have also set up a full-scale inspection system to prevent outflow of defects both automatically and manually.
Company-wide quality control system including overseas plants has been structured for more than 30 years as over 40 small groups have been active for continuous improvements.
We use in-house inspection jigs to check switch operation and the color tone when lit up, replicating actual usage conditions.
For external checks that cannot be assessed using a machine, we make sure skilled or experienced employees conduct visual checks.
Three dimensional measuring instruments are integrated to conduct highly precise measurements automatically. For high volume production, we manage quality with precise dimensional checks.
We use an image recognition system to check if complicated and look-alike parts are assembled properly or if any small parts are missing, because this may be easy to overlook even through trained eyes.
We conduct highly precise inspections swiftly, covering both a cosmetic inspection and a dimensional check.
Jigs with sensors are used to find defects that occur during assembly. This method maintains efficiency while preventing the outflow of defects.
Fuji Bakelite acquired the international standard ISO 9001 certification in June 1998. We are also engaged in environmental activities such as energy-savings, resource conservation and reducing waste disposal in order to alleviate our environmental footprint, and we acquired the international standard for Environment Management System ISO 14001 in July 2004. We finished updating both certifications again in 2018.
We strive to establish a quality assurance system where all teams function most effectively so that all products of our company satisfy the customer's quality requirements, comply with laws and regulations and foster a safety culture.
How to establish, improve and comply with the quality assurance system are shown as follows:
