6 Axis robotics
3D LASER SCANNING
Utilizes 6 axis robotic arms to trim all parts for consistency & repeatability. Once the part is programmed by Teach Pendant Technology, the robot will perform trimming, and cutouts. This will insure our customers cost effective products that have straight and even cutouts. When compared to our competitors hand grinding and sanding. Hand grinding, or cutting trim lines often leads to poor quality parts, and in most cases poor fit and function. Resulting in extra body work and down time, as well as unjustified costs due to the labor intensify process. Besides Trimming parts, our Robotic arms also Mills each Mold. Once we scan a part and create a 3D Model, we simply import then generate a Mold from several different types of materials. This also decreases the time from design to first article leading to perfectly design products. This capability is far more superior than traditional Tooling methods. For example, molding off an existing inconsistent part, or time consuming wood crafting. Our customers can rest assure our parts will be straight and fit accurately as they expect.

Utilizes 3D scanning Technology to create 3D models. This allows us to manufacture tooling/molds that are cost effective. This capability allows us to have quick turnaround times from idea to first article. We can produce molds faster and more accurate for any type of processes including flanging for closed molding. Please see video under Gallery in videos.
Utilizes advanced processes including RTM, CCBM, & LRTM. These processes allow us to achieve the correct resin to glass ratio. 70% Glass 30% Resin. Traditional methods for example, hand laying or in some cases chopping, the correct resin to glass ratio cannot be met. When hand laying or chopping a part, the applicator cannot control the amount of resin when applying. Also parts will be inconsistent from part to part by weight. Producing Motorcycle parts consistency is very important when you have two components matching for each motorcycle. Also when dealing with low frequency loads, the constant engine rumbling causing vibration. Certified has seen several bag sets weighing differently in some cases up to 10 pounds differences. This has to do with the resin being applied by hand, or spray. The inner side of the parts are thin and then thick. Also when hand laying or chopping a part, due to the excessive resin not only is weight an issue, but the part is very brittle. This is the lack of fiber content, and when combined with low frequency loads it causes premature breaking, and cracking, as well as shrinkage. Producing parts by closed mold, we can achieve 70% glass/30% resin insuring our customers a far more superior part and in most cases 10 times stronger, while also reducing weight by 50%. Simply by controlling the amount of resin being used. Certified uses injection Machines that count how many pump strokes that are injected. Each mold is barcoded and numbered for our applicator to set the injection Machine. Closed Mold also allows Certified to produce parts in which both sides are smooth. No rough fiber insides that can potentially hurt you. Please see video under Gallery in videos.
QUALITY CONTROL PROGRAM
Out of all capabilities listed above, this process is by far the most important. However without these capabilities Quality control isn't possible. Certified has developed a state of the art quality control program. Each mold and part is bar coded, scanned, and signed. Once an order is placed it generates a barcode which will follow the part throughout the entire part process. Allowing us to track real time. Before the part is shipped it will have one final scan and that Data will be stored. The Data will tell us the Date, Mold#, Robot#, employee#, As well as Batch#. throughout the entire production process. This insures our customers that they are getting the best product possible.
