Allen Tool Phoenix adds AS9100D Certification

 

Continuing with the momentum from our successful transition to ISO 9001:2015 in December, Allen Tool updated its QMS and passed the external audits to achieve AS9100D certification this May.

 

In addition to these certifications we have added some additional square footage with an addition to the back of our building. We have also added some new equipment to support Customer requirements and give us additional capacity.

 

This puts us in a great position to handle new business and pursue controlled, sustained growth in the future.

 


 

ISO 9001:2015 and NIST 800-171 Achieved

 

We have been busy in the 4th quarter with audits and certifications here at Allen Tool Phoenix Inc.

 

First in November we completed the 3 day transition audit to ISO 9001:2015. We had no new findings!

 

We also completed a full year of audits to the new Aerospace Standard AS9001 D. We hope to complete the external certification by the end of January. 

 

We also finished a third party Cybersecurity Risk Assessment audit to NIST 800-171. All recommended improvements to our system have been completed and have been verified by the Cybersecurity experts from The Advanced Institute for Manufacturing (AIM). They are part of the New York Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP).

 

The urgency to complete this was due to the Department of Defense DFARS 252.204-7012 requirement to meet the NIST 800-171 cybersecurity standard. The deadline was to be compliant by December 31st 2017 to continue to do business with the Government.

 

Congratulations to the entire team for supporting this.

 


 

Apprenticeship Program

 

Allen Tool Phoenix is proud to announce our participation in the New York State Manufacturing Intermediary Apprenticeship Program (NYSMIAP) sponsored by the Manufacturers Association of Central New York. NYSMIAP is an employer-led, public-private pilot program for registered apprentices in manufacturing occupations. The NYSMIAP is a unique business-lead approach targeted at raising the skill levels of incumbent manufacturing workers and creating distinctive career pathways while filling a crucial need within the industry. Our three apprentices began the four-year program for CNC Machinists on June 15th. In addition to daily on the job training, our apprentices are attending OCC for their related instruction. Good luck gentlemen!

Innovations
Ingenuity

The pictured project is a testimonial to the ingenuity of our employees. Forty-foot lengths of twenty-inch diameter pipe were machined on their O.D. and I.D. using a standard Vertical Machining Center and a modified double right angle head. The project, for the National Gas Association, was to machine artificial defects into natural gas pipe walls that would represent rust or cracks. The pipes were then installed at a testing facility, or proving ground, where robotic defect detecting devices are calibrated. Our employees designed and built all of the necessary tooling to complete this daunting task.

Vacuum Fixtures

Pictured here are two vacuum fixtures used in the production of thin aluminum panels which are then dip brazed together to form an electrical enclosure. The use of these fixtures allows us to produce one complete set of enclosure details per cycle on one of our vertical machining centers with a two-pallet changer. The details are then “kitted” in preparation for dip brazing.
