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!

CNC Machining
CNC Machining

At Allen Tool Phoenix we employ the latest equipment and tooling technologies in CNC Milling, Multi-Tasking/5-Axis Machining and Turning for the production of precision machined parts. We work with materials ranging from plastics to exotic alloys and we specialize in hard to machine materials and part features. Our parts range in size from miniature to a maximum CNC Milling capacity of 30" x 65" and a maximum CNC turning capacity of 26" diameter x 80" long. Our staff has always been a talented and highly trained group and we continue that tradition by conducting a NY State accredited Apprenticeship Program. So whatever machining project you may have, you can be confident that we have the means to accomplish it.

Production Machining

Our Mazak Nexus 4000-II equipped with a Mazak Palletech system contains six pallets, production management and probing software that allows Allen Tool to run “lights out”. This state of the art system can maintain three shifts of production while requiring only one shift of manned operation. This level of efficiency allows us to be very competitive on both low and high volume production runs.

 

Our three Automatic Pallet Changing Vertical Machining Centers give us great flexibility for short and long production runs alike. The machine pictured in the gallery is fitted with a custom vacuum system enabling us to use vacuum fixtures on both pallets without interruption to production on the pallet being machined.

 

Also pictured in our gallery is our Mazak Integrex 9 axis Mill/Turn Center with GL-100 Gantry Loader. This machine provides unmanned operation creating the efficiency required to be competitive on high volume turning contracts. This machine is also capable of full 5-Axis machining of complex work-pieces.

Prototype Machining

We specialize in quick turnaround of prototype work pieces. Provide your solid model in any CAD format and we will quickly turn that model into the hardware you need. With the use of MasterCam’s machining simulation feature, we can save valuable time at setup and machining which allows us to deliver prototypes fast and at a reasonable price.
