At Alco Manufacturing, quality is the number one priority. We are dedicated to producing the highest quality parts for each customer, which is why we commit our resources to staying up-to-date with the latest technological advancements and maintaining our role as an industry leader.

Alco employees utilize a state-of-the-art online computer application, integrated CAD (computer-aided design) software, automated PLCs (programmable logic controllers) and statistical process control (SPC) methods.

Alco’s Online Computer Application

ComputerEverything we need to produce a high-quality component.

Alco’s manufacturing personnel use a completely integrated, custom designed and custom developed application to review all prints, procedures and work instructions necessary to produce a quality part. Each piece of documentation needed to meet quality requirements is seamlessly integrated into every aspect of the online application, including gauge tracking for recertification, FMEAs (failure mode and effects analyses) and Control Plans for part processes, preventive maintenance for production equipment and a quality operating system. The online application enables our top-notch manufacturers to track and analyze data for our continuous improvement program.
Our demand plan system allows us to ship 90% of our customers’ requirements with only 24 hours notice.

Integrated CAD Software

CADIn-house precision every time.

CAD (computer-aided design) software allows Alco to produce precision prints in-house for each and every customer requirement. By drawing prints in house, we save time and increase our flexibility. Our 3D CAD Inventor software affords us the ability to create drawings for customized machine tooling for R & D projects. This allows us to outfit our machinery with the best, most efficient tooling.

Automated PLC Controllers

PLCSay goodbye to human error.

With programmable logic controllers (PLC), our production process always goes smoothly and seamlessly. Although the controllers are automated, we ensure all process information is displayed and monitored by an Alco operator in real time to maintain the highest rate of machine efficiency.

Statistical Process Control Methods

Highly controlled and highly efficient.

From the beginning of the process to the approval state, performance is maintained and monitored with SPC (statistical process control) methods.
