Plymouth, MA – July 19, 2010 – Suncor Stainless, Inc. has earned its place on the U.S. Government’s Quality Manufacturer’s List, meeting the quality and testing requirements for aircraft control cable terminals and assemblies. Representatives from the Defense Supply Center, Standardization Program Branch, Aviation Division came to Suncor Stainless in February 2010 to inspect manufacturing and quality processes for 22 corrosion resistant steel swage terminals. The parts were measured and tested under inspector supervision to meet the MIL-DTL-6117 and MIL-DTL-781 requirements. The inspectors surveyed the implementation of Suncor’s ISO 9001 quality system and adhesion to mandated tracking procedures.
Acquiring these qualifications was important to Suncor in order to offer the highest quality rated products to the companies and industries that depend on them. Engineering Manager, Jim Storrer, commented on the advantages that come along with these qualifications, saying that meeting the requirements “has raised Suncor’s already high standard of quality (and) there will always be a need for superior quality suppliers.”
The stainless steel parts that are now listed in QPL-781 include Swage Aircraft Eyes (MS20668), Swage Aircraft Studs (MS21259), Swage Aircraft Jaws (MS20667) and Single Shank Balls (MS20664), varying in size from 1/16” to 3/8”. Several more swage sizes and terminals are pending and Suncor plans to extend their wire rope shop to include a testing of long wire rope assemblies per MIL-DTL-6117.
