Our Commitment to Quality
Grand River Rubber & Plastic. utilizes statistical process controls (SPC) to maintain industry leading tolerances. Our Infinity QS program is utilized throughout the sweeper belt process, measuring the wall thickness . The finishing step of our process includes the measurement of the cut size of the sweeper belts.
Grand River utilizes a Microview Units Vision System that integrates with our SPC program. This unique program can measure Internal diameter (ID), outside diameter (OD), and wall thickness, all documented in our capability reports.
This technology allows us to measure down to one ten thousandths of an inch, thus offering our customers very precise and accurate reports. We also use a Production Part Approval Process (PPAP), which gives our customers’ complete lot traceability from raw material to finished product.
