Quality: A Model of Excellence
By offering a unique and comprehensive service in product development by concentrating on our core disciplines, we consistently produce work to the highest quality and ensure that every customer receives their very own "Model of Excellence".
At Paragon, we are committed to investing in new technology and innovations that will further improve our capabilities.
Our Quality Management System is now Certified!
We recently achieved ISO 9001:2015 certification, underlining our company-wide commitment to delivering superior parts for our customers.
ISO 9001: 2015 is an internationally recognised standard with a focus on supplying products and services of the highest quality. Paragon prides itself on its technical expertise and strong reputation for delivering superior customer service and achieving the accreditation for our Quality Management System is testament to this.
Paragon’s Quality manager David Hamm, who facilitated the certification process, said: “Gaining this certification represents the next phase of Paragon’s growth strategy, as we strive to be the product development partner of choice. We’ll continue to roll out business improvement policies like this to support our development going forward and ensure Paragon remains at the forefront of the prototyping industry.”

Maintaining Quality Through CAD-Based Inspection
The recent introduction of a portable, high-precision 3D measurement device from FARO now means that we are able to maintain our superior product quality through digital verification. The state of the art ScanArm allows us to carry out 3D part inspections and compare components to their original CAD data, by undertaking exact measurements and wider digital analysis.
As part of our quality assurance process, we can use the equipment to evaluate any deviations in form and ensure every part is within specified tolerances.
3D Scanning for Reverse Engineering
Using the FARO ScanArm equipment, we can also reverse engineer products where CAD data is insufficient, or in some cases, non-existent. Generating a printable CAD model in this way offers an effective, cost effective solution to quickly reproducing an existing component.
Ongoing development of our policies and procedures through our growing Quality department will ensure Paragon remains a leading supplier of rapid prototyping services.
