Quality & Environment

We expect our suppliers to have a system of quality management in place that guarantees fault-free supply right from the start of serial production. For this purpose, we agree the necessary measures and framework deadlines at the start of each project.

We attach great importance to failure mode and effects analyses (FMEA) and capability verification for machines, production processes and test procedures. Furthermore, parameters that change over the course of production are subjected to critical observation, e.g. due to tool wear. Preventive quality assurance culminates in approval on the basis of an initial sampling pursuant to VDA or PPAP and final process acceptance conducted under serial production conditions.
In this way, we can ensure a punctual and error-free start of production (SOP) through close collaboration between quality assurance, technical purchasing and development.

Quality management capabilities can be demonstrated by means of certification under IATF 16949 or DIN ISO 9000ff, Environmental Management system by applications of ISO 14001 (each with the current valid version).

Kolbenschmidt products have a significant impact to emission control and energy consumption. Environmentally conscious behavior is an important part of Kolbenschmidt’s company policy which is ensured by a management system. Kolbenschmidt therefore expects also from its suppliers a careful handling of resources or rather an orientation/implementation of a quality management system.

With a consistent focus on the quality- and environmental management a sustainable cooperation between the suppliers and Kolbenschmidt is ensured.
