The company’s activities are set out in the manual and ISO 9001 quality system, have undergone constant revision as part of continuous improvement, and receive periodical inspections by our clients and certifying organisations.
Every item leaving the company is provided with a product certificate. This is a sort of ‘passport’ connected with the forging-batch code that every forging has stamped on it, enabling the product to be traced back to its origins and mechanical characteristics, anywhere and at any time. There are three types of certificate: 2.2 , 3.1 and 3.2. The first is general, the second includes the results of the tests carried out and the third is accompanied by the check-up of an external inspector. Certificates are saved on an online database which can always be consulted.
Over many years of activity, Feat has accumulated hundreds of international standards which govern mechanical components in all their manifestations. This library of knowledge is kept up-to-date by means of an IT database.
The respect for the environment is strictly linked to quality. That’s why we are adapting our structure to the ISO 14001 regulations, carrying out waste policies and developing systems for recovering the energy that the company produces by means of its own cogeneration plants.
