Korvis Quality Management System



Consistent with our overall business strategy, the Korvis QMS takes a pragmatic approach to assuring our customers receive consistent, reliable equipment that will perform from the 1st day of service through its entire lifecycle.


Korvis is proud to carry dual registrations for ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 13485:2003. The registration comes through the international auditing company TÜV and is maintained through two audits every year. We employ 9001:2008 QMS and 13485:2003 QMS designations in our work areas and assure our people are trained to operate in accordance to the QMS level within which they are working.


Along with our ISO 9001:2008 and 13485:2003 audits, Korvis supports specific customer audits and collaborates with our customers' quality organizations regularly. We have been audited and successfully passed audits by customers from many industries including Semiconductor, Disk Drive, Bio-Medical, and Alternative Energy. Further, as required, Korvis products are compliant and certified to SEMI (most frequently S2 and S8), UL, CE (we commonly self mark), NFPA, RoHS, ANSI, ASME, and many more.


Korvis' QMS is truly a company-wide system addressing our processes from our handling of customer inquiries and RFQ's though all phases of quote, design, development, procure, build, test, ship, and finally post delivery support. The QMS is defined through and overarching Quality Manual for our ISO 9001:2008 and 13485:2003 QMS. These manuals are consistent with the standards and specifically call out our procedures and forms which, as the ISO standards mandate, are implemented and followed to ensure that at the conclusion of each process, if given the required input, the desired output will be achieved.


Our operations follow an overall Korvis process map that specifically delineates how we do our business. The process map addresses specific procedures and forms that get used regularly while also serving as a baseline process map to be tailored for projects, products or customer with special requirements.


Procedures to manage change control, non-conformances, corrective and preventive actions, internal audits, test and measuring equipment calibration, process validation, risk assessment, etc. are all included and followed within our QMS. The data derived from these processes is discussed during our semi-annual management reviews and real and/or potential issues are identified and addressed.
