Cardinal ST’s Intelligent Quality Assurance Program Ensures Peak Performance
Our industry-leading inspection processes are your assurance that Cardinal ST will always meet your specifications. We ensure the quality of our glass and thin film products by employing our own patented inspection systems from start to finish. Continuous in-line inspection is your assurance of brand protection.
Our automated Intelligent Quality (I.Q.) systems rely on unique scientific instruments and sophisticated Six Sigma software using proven methodologies for quality analysis and control. Cardinal’s Intelligent Quality systems ensure objectivity and product uniformity plant-to-plant, time-after-time.
Our research and development department continues to push the envelope of glass and coating technology. Innovations in new manufacturing processes, new thin film materials and new inspection systems equate to glass products with a high I.Q. You’ll see our I.Q. symbol in each process section with a brief overview of our relevant Intelligent Quality measurements systems.
Six Sigma and Continuous Improvement

Six Sigma and Continuous Improvement objectives are driven by senior management and supported at all levels of our organization. A special infrastructure of trained Champions, Black Belts and Green Belts are dedicated to achieving standardized, measurable and repeatable Six Sigma processes across all Cardinal ST sites.
