CORDM obtains the status AEOS “Safety and security”

For several months now, we have been implementing actions at CORDM to strengthen the security of our international “supply chain” in cooperation with the French Customs.

This is reflected in tighter controls on on-site access and buildings, as well as in our commercial relationships with transport companies, inspection and monitoring procedures for means of transport, tighter recruitment policies for employees, particularly for sensitive positions, and greater awareness among the company’s employees of safety and security issues.

CORDM wanted to enhance this approach by obtaining the “AEOS- Safety Security” certification. This certification allows any company established within the European Union (EU) carrying out an activity related to international trade (small or large companies) to acquire a quality label on the customs and security and safety processes it implements.

Issued in France by the French customs, the AEO authorization is recognized throughout the EU and in countries that are signatories to mutual recognition agreements.

The advantages of the Authorized Economic Operator status authorization are numerous. In addition to the facilities provided by customs and security and safety legislation, the approach was structuring for CORDM. It has made it possible to evaluate and control its customs and security/safety processes. Its organisation has been optimised by taking into account customs and logistics functions, better communication between employees and the implementation or improvement of legibility and internal control tools.

The French Customs visited CORDM for a certification audit on the 7th and the 8th of November 2018.

CORDM obtained the “safety and security” certification on 26 November 2018.

The certificate is available on request. Do not hesitate to ask us for it.

 

Season’s greetings

At the end of this year, we would like to thank you for your continued support and confidence.

We wish you, your team members and Family, a Merry Christmas and a very Happy and healthy New Year 2019.

Your spiral bevel gears with CORDM

CORDM expands its production range

Since January 2017, CORDM manufactures spiral bevel gears up to 1600 millimeters in diameter – from 6 to Modul 30 and can deliver DIN 6 quality thanks to the hard cutting process called  HPG.
Most of our spiral bevel gears are manufactured from carburizing steel and undergo a case hardening to a surface hardness of 60 Rockwell C(HRc) and a core hardness of 1000-1150 N/mm².

Spiral bevel gears offer:

  • High quality and precision manufacturing (high speed dry cutting)
  • Hard-finishing process
  • Noice reductions
  • Different possibilities for shaft angles (larger or smaller than 90°).
  • Better mating processes

New investments at CORDM

 Our machinery has been expanded with the arrival of a new gear control machine:

the ZEISS Bridge-Type CMM with Large Measuring Range

 

CORDM has just invested in in new 3D portal measuring machine, the so-called MMZ T from ZEISS. This new gear control machine is particularly suitable for testing large gear components. (roundness, concentricity, parallelism, etc.) –

With a measuring range of up to 14.8 m³, the ZEISS MMZ T offers the largest measuring range from amongst the table bridge-type measuring machines. For example: it enables the highly precise measurement of large gears directly on the shop floor.

The open design enables easy loading with a crane. The design of the machine allows for workpieces weighing up to ten tons.

Implementing 5 S

5s-kasalis-lean

  • Implementing “5 S” workplace organisation methodology

Cordm has experimented for the very first time the “5S” organisation methodology in its manufacturing facility and has chosen to start with the hobbing workshop.

Lean manufacturing or « 5S » is a management philosophy derived mostly from the Toyota Production System that uses a list of 5 japanese words:

Seiri (Sort) ; Seiton (Straighten) ; Seiso (Shine) ; Seiketsu (Standardize) andShitsuke (Sustain)

Production and maintenance operators as well as quality assurance manager were trained during 7 days on site. This experience has enabled the company to improve working conditions, reduce time and energy expenses, organise the workspace and promote the professional image of CORDM.

This first experience is very successful and will be extended in the forthcoming weeks to other working sections.
