Saw Quality Process

  • Are critical dimensions, angles, and flatness being checked on front (1st ) cut?

  • Are rollers cleaned between batches to prevent accumulation of saw chips on material?

  • Are critical dimensions, angles, and flatness being checked on end (last) cuts?

  • Is operator blowing all of the saw chips off of the profile?

  • Is the actual cut length within tolerance?

  • Is cut length measured at front and back of gauge stop once per batch?

  • Are racking instructions available?

  • Are racking instructions followed?

  • Are saw instructions followed?

  • Is retain sample saved off last billet of the order?

  • Is retain sample labeled with die and dash number?

  • Are samples being painted on each cavity to access surface quality on each batch?

  • On certified orders, was 1st billet scrapped?

  • Did operator cut enough cert samples to satisfy order ( e. g. 1 sample for every 1000 lbs)

  • Are cert samples cut 12" to 18" in length?

  • Was material stacked into rack so it was not overhanging on the end of the rack to reduce handling damage?

  • Were covered spacer bars used between all layers to prevent surface scratches?

  • Are cert samples labeled with correct location? ( e.g. Front, back, row number, rack number)

  • Are cert samples cut throughout order? ( e.g. Beginning of order, every 1000 lbs/ft, depending on weight/ft)

  • Are all gages and tools calibrated?

  • All end cuts being marked on cert samples? (Black for back end - red for front end)
