Quality Policy

As the manufacturing world is moving from PPM to "Zero Defect", At VAF Def-Aero Systems Private Limited, we are committed to providing our customers complete quality satisfaction through automated process controls and the benefits of sustained improvements.

Quality Objectives

A strict regimen of checks and inspections managed by a highly trained staff in our Quality Assurance Department ensures that all our products comply with established norms and regulations. From procuring raw materials to analyzing finished products, every stage of manufacturing processes is subject to rigorous quality checks.

Testing Facilities

The hallmark of any quality assurance program is the infrastructure available for conducting testing of components and products at various stages of production. We have facilities for undertaking a variety of test such as



  • To quantify the chemical composition of raw material, molten metal etc.
  • Can detect up to 29 elements with high accuracy, repeatability
  • Unique “iCAL 2.0” one sample standardization helps maintain the same standardization, regardless of most temperature shifts

Metallurgical Microscope

  • Make: Dewinter, Inverted microscope
  • Magnification: 100X, 200X
  • Camera: 5.0 megapixels with progressive scanning CMOS image sensor
  • Capable of viewing and analyzing microstructure, to measure:
    • Grain size as per ASTM E112/E1382-91
    • Coating thickness as per ASTM B487
    • Phase segmentation as per ASTM E562, E1245
    • Dendritic Arm Spacing

Hardness Testing Leak Testing Pressure Testing NDT-Dye Penetrant Test
Sand Lab: Moisture Content Testing Core Hardness Testing Mould Hardness Testing

We carry our specialized procedures such as "Failure mode & effect analysis" to ensure high quality standards in our products . Every part that we manufacture is adequately documented through the quality management system, in the digital domain in order to ensure repeatability in production.

From the purchase of raw materials to the dispatch of finished parts, we maintain complete process control to ensure quality. Strict controls also ensure that products can be developed as per required standards with excellent reproducibility. Through sustained training programs, every employee is trained to understand and employ quality measures throughout the operational processes.
