Bull Metal will begin the ISO 9001:2015 transition

As we live in a changing world, it comes as no surprise ISO 9001:2008 is now obsolete.  One of the key revisions is to institute a systematic approach to analyze risk.  What is risk?  Risk is the extent of a potential failure of the unknown and/or the likelihood of its occurrence.  Risk is native in all characteristics of a Quality Management System (QMS).  Risk based thinking ensures risks are considered and controlled.

To ensure we are meeting requirements and needs of our customers and external agencies, Bull Metal Products needs to develop a concept of preventive action through risk assessment and mitigation.  Failure Mode Effects Analysis (FMEA) will help identify risks resulting from changes in process variables.  From product design to the manufacturing process, FMEA’s will help understand requirements (and changes to requirements) with clear vision for troubleshooting in the event of an internal or external product failure.

What is a Failure Mode?  The indicator of a failure caused by product or process error (what happened and how did it happen?)

What is Affect Analysis?  Identifying and addressing potential failures of production before they occur.

How can I eliminate risk? 

Example:  I can eliminate risk of being late for work by driving over the speed limit. 

 How do I mitigate risk?

Example:  I can get to work on time but there is a good likelihood I could get pulled over by the highway police.

Implement a plan or action:

Example:  If I wake up earlier, I will not have the likelihood of being late or getting pulled over.

Check the plan or action’s effectiveness:

Example:  I woke up 30 minutes earlier and arrived to work safely (without getting pulled over) and on time. 

Learn and Improve:

Example:  I’ve been able to make it to work on time for an entire month.  I know have data to use to help allow myself to make it to other venues and arrangements without being late.  This experience teaches me to allow myself enough time for transportation incase an unknown variable could delay my travels. 

Implementing control where the identified variables may be unknown is essentially incorporating Preventive Action throughout the entire context of the organization, including external parties.  Risk based thinking is not new.  We ask ourselves these types of questions in everyday life.  Implementing risk mitigation to our QMS will allow us to meet the new standards of ISO 9001:2015 while being able to serve our customers with better products and services.



CUSTOM AUTOMOTIVE PRODUCT POP DISPLAY: Designed to accommodate a large number of products in a minimum amount of floor space, this 2 sided custom automotive product POP display is currently being produced and will be used in the Automotive industry to showcase a variety of filter/service kits. There are a variety of production capabilities employed to construct these sturdy high-quality floor displays which require Bull Metal & Display to cut, pierce, and form tubing. All components are MIG welded together. A classic high gloss white powder coated finish provides an unobtrusive and rich finish that lets any displayed product stand out in a retail establishment, especially with the use of attractive graphics.

NEED A PROTOTYPE?                    dsc01392

Are you in the midst of a new project that requires a custom fabricated sheet metal component? Or, perhaps you are modifying an existing product to create the next generation of that product line and the design improvements will not work with your existing enclosure, cabinet, or chassis. This is a situation that requires a hands-on prototype to prove out the new product or the design changes for fit and function.

Look to Bull Metal for prototypes

In such situations, you do not have to go to a costly prototype shop.  You can look to Bull Metal Products to work with you in the design and development of the custom fabricated sheet metal prototypes necessary for your new product.  There is no better way to develop the fabricated sheet metal components required for a product than with a company that can also run the production parts upon your approval of the sample.

In the sampling process, we will incorporate construction design details in the prototype that allow for economic cost efficient manufacturing when the product is released for production.  With over 60 years of custom sheet metal fabrication experience, we have a wealth of knowledge that allows us to be very creative in tackling the particular challenges that each project brings with it.dsc01393

Prototypes more than a test for fit and function

Of course making prototypes to prove out the fit and function of a new design, or changes to an existing design is a primary reason to make prototypes.  However, another huge benefit is having the opportunity to get your customers’ feedback on a new product by putting a working prototype in their hands.  Often you can also get some preliminary market feedback should you take the prototype to a trade show to generate interest in the new product.

Samples for agency testing and market feedback


Many times, the next step is to make a small sample run of the approved prototype for agency testing (UL, CSA, etc), or deeper market testing prior to going to full scale production. Bull Metal Products can be your one stop shop for product design, prototypes, sample size production runs, and full scale production.  Whether it is an access control enclosure, a security system cabinet, an electronic chassis, a tool box, or any other type of custom fabricated sheet metal product, you can count on Bull Metal Products to meet your needs.
