A First Article Inspection ( FAI ) establishes accountability that our products have been manufactured to customer specifications. Every critical design characteristic called out on the part drawing is verified and recorded. Matrix performs FAIs for all new part orders, and we can also provide FAI data after any process change when required. The use of cross-sectional scanning technology enables us to provide FAI data more quickly and accurately than traditional methods. Any process streamlining or part adjustments can be addressed in a more timely manner, resulting in a faster turnaround time. Providing this valuable service earns Matrix a higher level of trust from our customers and strengthens our relationships with them.
