Modern quality management accompanies every step in the process sequence at STIHL. Be it when producing specimens, when building the dies, in the foundry, during surface treatment or during machining - precision is always assured. The basis for this precision is established in the development phase with totally organized quality planning.
These standards are assured in all production areas through the use of highly complex, modern measuring systems and machines.
Despite all the automation, however, proven technology cannot and must not replace the trained eye of an experienced member of staff.
In-process X-ray inspections dispel all uncertainties as to the microstructure of the casting.
