Hutchinson Engineering - Much more than EN1090
20 Mar 2017
We are delighted to say that Hutchinson Engineering have been awarded EN1090 for CE Marking. However, we like to go the extra mile and have taken a blanket approach with regards to our welders as we have a fully qualified team to BSEN 9606 accreditation and our Responsible Welding Coordinator is certified to BSEN 14731.
What is EN 1090?
This is a legal requirement for aluminium or structural steel CE marking to show compliance with a harmonised European standard.
What does this entail?
The implementation of a quality management system which has the documentation and procedures to ensure traceability and confidence in the manufactured product. A responsible Welding Coordinator is required with specific training to be completed. Finally, welders must be fully qualified along with the welding procedures. It is necessary to have a welding procedure for each different type of weld.
Quality, Traceability and capability
Fabrication has been a key service since our formation in 1971 and our future commitment to fabrication is evident having invested over £200k in the latest surface tables, Jigs, and IT software to allow full traceability. Fabrication is the perfect complement to our growing portfolio of services which includes Tube laser, flatbed laser, and turned components.
With in-house craneage facilities, we offer customers fabrication solution for projects such as Chassis assemblies, Conveyors, Agricultural and forestry equipment, Inspection machines and walkways.
Quality control is at the heart of everything we do. Our rigorous procedures ensure that consistent strength and finish are maintained on all welds. Investment in market leading technology is key to our success. Our quality lab is no exception and is fully equipped with the latest measuring and verification technology. Our measurement suite includes a Faro arm, Inspecvision machine, along with traditional Jigs and fixtures. Our bespoke MRP has a vital part to play in delivering our quality standard. Every detail of a customer order including quality specific requirements are visible at each stage of the production process, unique barcodes ensure that quality alerts are always top priority.
