The TRAMAG Quality Equation: QA + QM = QMS for satisfied customers

In the following, we will first describe and sort the most important overriding quality terms before we then present the quality assurance measures in the TRAMAG production process:

Quality Assurance (QA) comprises all organizational and technical measures aimed at fulfilling the specified standard-, application- and customer-related quality requirements for our products.

Quality Management (QM), in turn, is responsible for organizing the quality assurance (QA) measures that serve to improve the quality of work, processes and products and to create confidence in their compliance. A Quality Management Representative (QMR) is directly assigned to the company management in his/her function as advisor and coordinator for quality management.

The combination of QA and QM results in the Quality Management System (QMS), which is precisely described and bindingly defined as a standard in DIN EN ISO 9001:215-11 for all ISO 9001-certified companies, including TRAMAG. The QMS is an integrative part of the company management with the aim that the process quality, the system quality and the product quality are continuously checked and optimized. The QMS provides the organisation with the basic methodology with which a company aligns its CIP for the maintenance of quality: Measuring the actual state; implementing an improvement measure; controlling/measuring the change; documenting the result/improvement.

And now to the quality assurance measures (QA) in the value-added process of our production:

Insights into the transformer and choke production of a leading specialist

Quality assurance (QA) is a top priority at TRAMAG. Not only during the production itself, but also from the incoming goods of the materials to the packaging and dispatch of the end products, our employees are trained to carefully monitor every process in detail and thus ensure the desired and expected TRAMAG quality.

The successful eleven

During the entire manufacturing process, the winding goods are checked for accuracy, functionality and quality.

1. Incoming goods inspection

Incoming goods inspection

The incoming goods inspection of the parts delivered by our suppliers ensures that only defect-free material enters the production process.

2. Material storage

Material storage

In order to maintain a good overview right from the start, proper and system-supported accounting and storage of the delivered materials takes place.

3. Picking

The material is picked according to the order and made available to the production departments at the workplace.

4. Production according to specifications

Production according to specifications

The winding goods are produced according to precisely described, up-to-date production documents and work instructions, shortly available digitally on the workplace screen.

5. Material check

Material check

Before starting work, the materials are checked again by the production worker, e.g. checking the wire diameter of the correct copper wire for the coil winding.

6. Worker self-control

Worker self-control

During the entire production process, a so-called worker self-inspection is carried out on the basis of the technical documents provided for the order.

7. Run control

Run control

The production manager carries out continuous, random checks at all production workplaces, from prefabrication, winding and assembly to the impregnation process. In the case of complex products manufactured for the first time, employees from development and design also support production by carrying out quality checks at the workplace.

8. Documentation

For traceability in the event of a quality complaint, e.g. the batch numbers of processed insulation foils and enamel-insulated Cu wires of the respective production order are documented in a traceable manner.

9. QA intermediate inspection

QA intermediate inspection

The electrical and mechanical QA intermediate test is carried out by the production employee or the test field, depending on the size, in order to detect and rectify any material or production faults before impregnation.

10. 100% QA final inspection

100% QA final inspection

The final mechanical and electrical quality inspection for each manufactured product is carried out according to the respective specifications of the inspection plan and an individual inspection report is prepared for all inspected products.

11. Packaging/shipping

Before packing our products, our shipping personnel compare the type plate with the delivery note, for example, using the 4-eyes principle, in order to meet TRAMAG’s quality standards and those of our customers in the final QA step as well.

Quality is when your QMB goes “High-Five-S” with you

We know where quality must ultimately be demonstrated and proven: In the product, in the customer’s application. But where does quality begin? On the one hand in technical development and on the other hand in the organization of workplaces in production. Employees who keep their workstations tidy maintain an overview, have access to the right tools at all times and can work on the product efficiently and with quality assurance.

“Quality is when the Customer comes back and not the Product”

The most technically innovative or economically attractive product in an application is worth nothing if the quality is not right. Not only would the failure of the product itself have to be lamented, but possibly also further damage to the entire application.
