BRING NEW PRODUCTS TO MARKET FASTER
HUGE TIME SAVER
“Recently we had a spike in new business with over 60 parts needing First Articles. With the help of 1factory (first article inspection software) we were able to bubble the drawings, program our CMM to the bubble drawing and directly download the data right onto the First Article form. We were able to complete this task of First Articles meeting all deadlines and shipping dates. It was a huge time saver and it made our Quality department shine!”
