High-quality first article testing is an essential component of a complete production process. Checking for product conformance prior to production prevents misunderstandings of product specifications, ensures that the most effective tooling methods are being utilized in mass production—and with our commitment to quality control—lowers the risk of design inconsistencies or product deviations. Industrial Custom Products has the tools you need for a thorough and complete first article inspection that you can trust.


Our first article testing process involves careful assessments with state-of-the-art technology. Utilizing the FARO QuantumM ScanArm, first articles are laser scanned and compared to the intended specifications to ensure accuracy and adherence to the project guidelines. This scanning procedure not only removes possible user error with noncontact inspections, but also cuts down time to market significantly.


The pre-production to mass production process is one that relies on speed.  When you have first article testing that you can rely on, production goes smoothly and your product can hit the market without delay and without unexpected setbacks. Proceeding with inaccurate or inconsistent first article inspections can result in unreliable or unrepeatable designs that only translate into more problems following mass production. Because of this, we understand that accuracy and speed are both key in every step of pre-production.


All of our first article inspection reports include confirmation that the provided specifications are accurate, that the product adheres to said specifications, and that the materials in question are appropriately suited to large-scale production. With your tooling verified and your designs confirmed, your production team can lead your product forward and into the hands of your buyers.
