Quality & Materials Department

The Quality & Materials Department’s purpose is to support the ongoing activities and projects with which the Applied Physics and Superconducting Technology Directorate is involved. We typically get involved early in a project estimating costs and providing expertise on manufacturing and quality engineering issues. As a project evolves, we initiate procurements for the parts, tooling, and supplies necessary to support the fabrication efforts. We provide source and incoming inspection services throughout the project. After items pass inspection, we provide storage and inventory control functions for magnets and their components. Additionally, we offer metrology and fabrication procurement services throughout Fermilab and to other National Laboratories. The Quality & Materials Department is committed to ensuring that deliverable items meet our customer’s specifications/requirements and that a safe work place is provided for our employees while protecting the environment.
