Your company’s reputation is only as solid as the quality of your products, and producing a quality product means sticking to rigorous standards throughout the entire production timeline. At Tank Components Industries (TCI), we know firsthand that a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility and detail-oriented production methods go a long way toward ensuring quality. However, we’re also serious about complying with American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) standards. But why do ASME standards matter? Scroll down to explore these crucial quality standards.
Exploring ASME Standards
What is ASME?
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers is a not-for-profit membership organization that governs manufacturing and engineering operations like ours. Since its inception in 1880, ASME has grown to include more than 100,000 member organizations around the world. ASME’s mission focuses on “collaboration, knowledge sharing, career enrichment, and skills development across all engineering disciplines.” The organization’s goal is simple: to improve the global engineering community. Ultimately, ASME’s diverse library of codes and standards are considered the top standard across the engineering and manufacturing fields. In other words, ASME is the authority for manufacturing operations like TCI.
Why do ASME standards matter?
ASME provides an important public service as the premiere body for engineering and manufacturing standards and product certifications and ASME standards:
- Safety Standards: Developed by technical experts, ASME’s safety standards are meant to keep manufacturing and engineering business practices open and transparent for consumers.
- Product Certifications: ASME’s product certifications are devised using rigorous standards to ensure consumer safety and satisfaction. When you purchase an ASME-approved product, you’re investing in consumer satisfaction – and safeguarding your reputation at the same time.
How do I find an ASME-certified contractor?
Sourcing products and materials through an ASME-approved company is smart for a few reasons. First, you can rest easy knowing that the company’s quality systems have been through a rigorous review process. Additionally, ASME-certified organizations have to comply with the latest in safety developments to renew their certifications. Finding an ASME-approved contractor is as easy as using the ASME Certificate Holder Search. This easy online service allows customers to find manufacturers by name, location, or certificate type. The search also indicates if a contractor’s ASME certificate has expired.
Using an ASME-certified manufacturer is the best way to ensure that your product has been rigorously assessed for safety and durability. Ultimately, our customers know that a good reputation depends on a quality product, which is why we’re committed to ASME compliance.
