Progressive Components Releases Certification Program

Progressive Components Releases Certification Program

Plastics Business


The Component Certification program by Progressive Components, Wauconda, Illinois, offers visibility of supplier component purchases and verification of mold specification compliance.

With this new program, mold buyers are provided a unique ID that is incorporated into every Bill of Materials (BOM) and subsequently required to be included with each purchase order along with the Tool ID. With both IDs documented, a detailed report that identifies BOMs ordered by all suppliers is sent to the mold buyer each month.

This report provides verification that the number of molds issued to each supplier matches the number of BOMs ordered, and it includes a complete listing of parts ordered. The program reduces mold damage and downtime caused by inferior mold components and offers confirmation that suppliers are complying with established mold specifications.
