Manufacturing a high quality product is the main focus of the Milcots Production Team. MILCOTS leadership is deeply committed to implementing quality practices throughout all levels of the organization. Currently certified to ISO9001:2015 – and compliant to Airforce quality standard AS9100 with certification expected 2022
Our 50,000 sq. ft state-of-the-art facility has been designed to enhance manufacturing flow, workforce expansion and incorporates multiple environmental testing chambers (heat, cold, vibration), a dark room for testing LCD luminance and NVIS features, EMI testing and a dedicated class 10k Clean Room.
All products are assembled by a team of highly trained technicians. Working within their own cell, team members have access to all online documentation. Routings and travelers are documented and signed for each single step of the production process. Our team of QC inspectors gets involved when parts are received and maintain a constant quality watch during integration (in process) up to the last steps prior to shipping (final inspection as part of the acceptance procedure).
The ESD and environmentally controlled facility prioritizes cleanliness, starting with an effective FOD awareness program. Glass & LCD assembly is completed in a separate clean room to ensure no debris. Processes such as gluing and soldering are performed in separate ventilated rooms to avoid cross contamination and guarantee safe conditions to our personnel.
A traveler packet accompanies every product assembled which tracks all steps completed as well as in-process quality checks. The well controlled inventory is managed by FIFO and material used is tracked on each traveler by vendor information for full traceability. Every product is 100% tested and 100% QC Inspected before leaving Milcots.
Milcots has a complete Environmental test area including multiple Thermal Chambers as well as a Shock & Vibration table. This equipment is used for Design Validation as well as any ESS or Burn-In requirements set forth in the product specification/requirements.
MILCOTS performs a 24 hours ESS burn-in test at high temperature on each single product manufactured. Performed to eliminate any premature electronic defect, this ESS sequence can be completed by more specific tests (such as vibration or cold start) when required by the program.
Milcots is an ISO9001:2015 company with a complete paperless quality system.
