Quality Overview

Rotor Clip is certified to ISO/TS 16949:2009 & ISO 9001:2008,the international quality standards. Over the years, we have received numerous quality awards as well, including the GM "Mark of Excellence," the Ford Q1 and the Chrysler QE. But our quality reputation means more to us than mere plaques on the wall. It is our way of assuring our customers that they can use our products with confidence. As we move into the 21st Century, it is also our way of demonstrating our commitment to meeting our customers demands for quality innovation and process savings.


ISO 9001

ISO 9001 is an international standard that outlines the essential requirements of a modern quality management system for manufacturing. This includes monitoring of internal processes, continuous improvement, and a strong system of controls over information and material. As an organization certified to ISO 9001, Rotor Clip has implemented the necessary procedures and training to ensure it can offer products conforming to the high quality standards expected by customers around the globe. 


ISO/TS 16949:2009

The standard is part of a re-emergence as a brand leader and R&D center for the engineering, production and packaging of retaining rings. TS is goal oriented and fits very well with the drive to provide value and service to its global customers. Instead of focusing on core procedures that everyone is expected to follow, TS requires management to set goals and meaningful metrics. These targets are tracked on a regular basis and problems are addressed through corrective and preventive actions. This goal driven philosophy results in timely improvements in every area of the company and cost reduction opportunities for its customers.



Rotor Clip is certified to AS9100 and operates under a quality management system meeting the standards of its aerospace customers. The AS9100 standard places additional emphasis on functions such as systematic risk management, configuration management, and evaluation of suppliers. As an AS9100-certified company, Rotor Clip takes responsibility for not only its own work, but also the work of its vendors, whose quality management systems are also expected to live up to the expectations of the aerospace industry.


ISO 14001

ISO 14001 is a standard used by companies who take an organized approach to understanding and improving the interaction between their business activities and the environment. In developing an environmental management system certified to ISO 14001, Rotor Clip has appropriated this methodology throughout the company's processes, resulting in improvements that can be seen throughout the offices and production areas. It is Rotor Clip's policy that there are always more opportunities for reducing a manufacturer's impact on the environment.



Rotor Clips on-site test facility is fully accredited through our ISO/TS 16949:2002 designation. This lab routinely performs the necessary testing for Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) submissions that our customers require before accepting parts from us. Internally, this same lab tests the effectiveness of our manufacturing processes, such as heat treating and plating, and verifies our compliance to appropriate standards.


Operators fill out inspection information (as defined by the Control Plan) on worksheets. These are completed for each lot, reviewed by the supervisor, and sent to Quality Assurance, where they are stored electronically. A database is created for each new lot number, which allows us to search and retrieve information by lot number in response to customer requests.
