Quality Management Systems
North American Automotive Quality Core Tools are integrated into Shelby Welded Tube’s Quality Management System, including Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP), Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA), Production Part Approval Process (PPAP), Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA) and Statistical Process Control (SPC).
Our welded steel tubing is manufactured in accordance with applicable industry-wide standards, including ASTM A513, ASTM A787 and JIS G3445 (carbon tubing), and ASTM A268 (stainless steel tubing – non-annealed). Additionally, customer specific material specifications are well reviewed during the contract review and APQP process to ensure your specific requirements are met.
Located near the Shelby Welded Tube plant, independent laboratory Metallurgical Solutions, Inc. (MSI) provides testing for our customers. MSI is A2LA certified to ISO/IEC 17025 (Certificate 2037.01), which is utilized for detailed failure analysis as well as mechanical and chemical composition testing.
