Quality assurance: a dedicated organization based on risk management system and education

From an organization point of view, IPS has always applied a management system based on a continuous improvement policy. IPS quality organization has been implemented so as to master the quality of the material with quality managers dedicated to each production line (solder powders and solder spheres). The quality manager rules overall quality management system and acts as the quality interface with customers and suppliers.

IPS products quality assurance is based on a risk management analysis performed along processes from the Raw Materials selection up to the final material release. Indeed, the recognized quality of IPS products is guaranteed through a severe selection of raw materials from well-known refiners able to respect the company’s stringent specifications in terms of quality and safety. Close care taken in the alloys formulation and accurate inspection of our products with the most adapted equipments are supported by local institutes. Also, IPS advanced proprietary granulation process together with in-house classification equipments are checked periodically with calibrated samples and monitored on regular basis with suppliers.

The "risk-analysis" based Quality Assurance reviews each process step with a detailed description of the relevant elements to be checked, the way these inspections are recorded and corrective measures to be applied in case of deviation detected. These risks analysis are reviewed periodically through quality audits performed by independent in-house auditors having an excellent knowledge of the process. In order to keep this recognition of excellence, IPS is very strict on employee's education so as to ensure an optimum skill through regular inspection and employees training to anticipate any process variation.

IPS quality system is logically certified ISO 9001: 2000.
