AS 9100 CERTIFIED


Aerospace Standard 9100 is a standard derived from ISO 9000 and specific to the Aerospace industry. It is a quality management system of continual improvement where customers play a significant role in defining requirements as inputs.
CUBITEK will then plan, purchase, produce, inspect, test, pack and ship products to customers at which point the customer will provide feedback. We will use this information to adjust our procedures, continually monitoring our methods to maintain the highest level of quality and customer satisfaction.
AS9100 is a widely adopted and standardized quality management system for the aerospace industry. It was released in October, 1999, by the Society of Automotive Engineers and the European Association of Aerospace Industries.
AS9100 replaces the earlier AS9000 and fully incorporates the entirety of the current version of ISO 9000, while adding additional requirements relating to quality and safety. Major aerospace manufacturers and suppliers worldwide require compliance and/or registration to AS9100 as a condition of doing business with them.
Prior to the adoption of an aerospace specific quality standard, various corporations typically used ISO 9000 and their own complementary quality documentation/requirements, such as Boeing's D1-9000 or the automotive Q standard. This created a patchwork of competing requirements that were difficult to enforce and/or comply with. The major American aerospace manufacturers combined their efforts to create a single, unified quality standard, resulting in AS9000. Upon the release of AS9000, companies such as Boeing discontinued use of their previous quality supplements in preference to compliance to AS9000.
During the rewrite of ISO 9000 for the year 2000 release, the AS group worked closely with the ISO organization. As the year 2000 revision of ISO 9000 incorporated major organizational and philosophical changes, AS9000 underwent a rewrite as well. It was released as AS9100 to the international aerospace industry at the same time as the new version of ISO 9000. read more!


CUBITEK SPONSORS SMITHTOWN ROBOTICS' TEAM


CUBITEK become involved in supporting the FIRST Robotics competition after the work of the Smithtown Robotics' Team was noticed at a street fair. For over five years CUBITEK staffers worked many nights into the early morning hours machining parts, dropping them off at the school, redesigning parts, re-machining parts, and still running the factory.
We at Cubitek would like to encourage all our customers and suppliers to become active in the FIRST Robotics competition. This is a wonderful project giving students real world skills in design and functionality, mechanical, hardware and software engineering, and the experience of bringing a project from "drawing board" to completion while working as a team. For more information about FIRST Robotics, just click the link www.usfirst.org. To sponsor the Smithtown Robotics' Team, visit their web site at www.smithtownrobotics.com.

INDUSTRY NICHE


Today, the machine shop industry is facing many challenges due to competition overseas. At times CUBITEK has lost contracts to other machine shops in the Far East. However, many of our customers have redirected this work back to us because of our superior quality and delivery.

The CUBITEK niche relies on our reputation as a machine shop that can take difficult projects and deliver them on time. This capability more than offsets the pricing edge of the overseas competition in the industry. CUBITEK is in business today because our customers trust us to do the work correctly the first time.
