For API 6D product, our internal manufacturing and process quality system leverages “critical control point” data to provide a high level of quality and manufacturing control. Key components of the CHECKPOINT® process include:
- A database that links CHECKPOINT® manufacturing plant input to a specific valve serial number.
- Visual review and/or inspection and sign-off at each stage in the process.
- Checklist / traveler for each valve / component in production that tracks its progress from raw material to finished product.
- Ability to monitor CHECKPOINT® data remotely.
