First Article Inspection

A First Article Inspection (FAI) is a formal inspection which provides feedback, and preferably validation, at the beginning of a manufacturing process, ensuring that the setup is ready for production.

We perform and report First Article Inspections and capability studies according to your specifications. At IIA, our FAI reports utilize the dimensional properties of a production part in comparison to design specifications. We can perform FAI’s on a wide variety of items, and inspections may include distances between edges, positions of holes, diameters and shapes of holes, weight, density, stiffness, color or surface finish.

Why IIA?

IIA has decades of experience in the industrial testing arena, and we are among the largest and most trusted providers of laboratory services in North America. From the face of a penny to the contours of a fighter jet, we can scan virtually any object. Partner with IIA and gain confidence in your manufactured products and processes.

CMM Coordinate Measuring Machine
Choosing the Right Service: Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) Inspection or Laser Scanning
A CMM Inspection defines part features through direct contact with the part using industry standard methodology to define features of the part. It’s a highly accurate system but can be more costly to use for a large quantity of parts.
