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.
The incoming goods inspection of the parts delivered by our suppliers ensures that only defect-free material enters the production process.
In order to maintain a good overview right from the start, proper and system-supported accounting and storage of the delivered materials takes place.
The material is picked according to the order and made available to the production departments at the workplace.
The winding goods are produced according to precisely described, up-to-date production documents and work instructions, shortly available digitally on the workplace screen.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Participation in the B2Run event on 25. July 2023 in Nuremberg
The weather was kind to the 14,000 runners, who were in the best of moods: Right at the start of this year’s B2Run event around Nuremberg’s Max Morlock Stadium, the rain took a long break. With a pleasant 22º C and a light breeze, a few rays of sunshine even fell on the colorful starting field of employees from many, many companies based in the Franconian region.Learn more
From the Fürth Solar Hill to the own Solar Roof
Eight years after saving the commissioning of the “Fürth Solarberg” with TRAMAG transformers, the Ammon family decided to install their own photovoltaic (PV) system on the roof of TRAMAG’s own company building. The 184kW peak output is sufficient to supply around 55 households with electricity, as reported in December 2011 by the Fürther Nachrichten on the occasion of the commissioning of the TRAMAG PV system, which was also attended by the Mayor of Fürth, who also climbed onto TRAMAG’s roof.Learn more
