– The latest technologies are used in the creation of TYC products. Robotic technologies are used to ensure consistency to product quality. Sensory devices are used in conjunction with production and assembly jigs to help detect any product offset or variation during production process. Five photometric tunnel labs to test reflection intensity and light pattern are available in-house for lighting products compliance.

Vehicle Test Fit

– Prototypes are created and mounted onto a vehicle. Any adjustment needed is made prior to market release. Each product is fit and performance tested to ensure drop-in, hassle-free installation.

Accelerated Fatigue Tests

– An array of tests is conducted on each product to assure top-notch quality. Test, such as abrasion, humidity, rain, salt spray, and vibration, are applied to meet or exceed DOT/SAE and industry standards.

Compliance Standard

Structural Parts

– Facilitated Ordering & Correct Part Delivery/Identification • Each Diamond Standard Brand Safety part has been assigned a unique partslink number ending with the suffix “DS”.

• Estimating systems and distributors can recognize the Diamond Standard parts numbering system to establish Diamond Standard part visibility. • Shop identification of the correct part is further enhanced by Diamond Standard branded outer packaging and labeling. – Cradle-To-Grave Permanent manufacturer Part Identification • The Diamond Standard Safety part identification standard provides permanent manufacturer identification, lot number and part number engraved or embossed into each Diamond Standard part. This meets all state regulations for manufacturer identification on crash parts used in the repair. – Part Traceability Label & Seal of Assurance • • • A two-part tracking label is affixed to each diamond Standard Brand Safety part, the lower portion of the two part label can be placed on repair orders or estimates as proof of use of the Diamond Standard part. The two-part label carries a unique serial number which provides “cradle-to-grave” traceability information on the part’s material, material certification analysis, manufacturing/lot history and final quality inspection reports linked to the individual part. The maximum traceability feature built into each unique serial number on each Diamond Standard Brand Safety part is unprecedented in its intensity within the industry and can be accessed at any time.

DIAMOND STANDARD Manufacturing Process

Precise Engineering

– – Purchase all applicable OE samples and perform test fits to establish master sample for scanning Test OE sample for mechanical and chemical properties by 3rd party laboratory – – Scan master sample to create material data and confirm data to sample by CMM Create part blueprint

Tooling Design

– – – – Create process flow chart for tooling Verify tool process through computer simulation software Complete tooling design with weekly reviews Casting patterns to be reviewed & approved before going to foundry

Tool Building & Testing

– – When all castings and tool steel are received they go through machine bay All construction of tooling runs thru die bay – – All tryout of tooling runs through one of two internal press bays VTF performed on 1 st corrections are made piece from tooling to determine any changes needed. Test fit is repeated until all

DIAMOND STANDARD Manufacturing Process

Part Approval (PPAP)

– – – – Part material thickness is verified to OE thickness using ultrasound tester Part shape and hole locations are verified on the checking fixture. Cosmetic features are compared to the OE sample in a light booth After 1 st piece is approved, panels are run to perform a thirty (30) piece capability study. One of the pieces is used to perform a vehicle test fit Mass production is started upon 3 rd party vehicle test fit approval

Impact Testing

– – – – Quasi-static 14” pole test performed on (4) OEM and (2) PBSI samples at MGA Research Labs Impact data is reviewed to determine if changes are necessary Crash test of OE bumper at 6mph Crash test of PBSI bumper at 6mph

Ongoing Product Validation

– All raw material is ordered to same specifications as the approved material and is certified by PBSI vendor


SHEET METAL Manufacturing Process

Our manufacturers meet IS0-9002; TS 16949; CAPA; Thatcham, etc. standards

– Meaning they are committed to quality standards in their processes and procedures and they are held accountable by independent third party testing


SHEET METAL Manufacturing Process

Part Die or “mold” created utilizing strict computer analysis of original (OE) part, often referred to as CAD (computer-aided design) 03/11

SHEET METAL Manufacturing Process


– Production run in manufactured “Lots” • • Lot control is part of the lean manufacturing process Lot control allows for consistency in part production


SHEET METAL Manufacturing Process


– Process is controlled by automated robotics to allow for precision and consistency throughout the production run


SHEET METAL Manufacturing Process

Random Testing

– At any point in the process a part may be pulled and subjected to testing procedures to ensure conformance to quality standards


SHEET METAL Manufacturing Process

Painting & Coating

– “Automated Electro-Deposition Painting (EDP) Facility” and “Man Machine Interface Device” used to monitor all the working processes and conditions, including where the human eye cannot see, during the E.D.P. coating process. – High-Tech Radial Electro-Core Coating is applied, rather than the traditional Flat Electro-core, which avoids the unequal coating on a parts’ surface. – Ultrasonic Cleaning Equipment efficiently cleanses all parts as they pass through the system, removing all residues, silt or other contaminants most other systems or manual processes will miss. – All E.D.P. coated products must withstand SAE recognized 1000 hour Salt Spray or 20 Cycles of Cyclic Corrosion Tests.


SHEET METAL Manufacturing Process

Third Party, Independent Testing

– Full compliance and participation in the leading, independent parts certification programs

Professional Parts Group Limited Lifetime Warranty

The Professional Parts Group warrants that all of its program parts shall be free of defects in materials and/or workmanship for as long as the part remains installed on the vehicle for which the part was originally purchased. We also guarantee our program parts against perforation (metal rust-through) due to corrosion over the course of normal use.

Any Professional Parts Group program part found to be defective will be replaced, repaired or the original purchase price refunded at the discretion of the Professional Parts Group Preferred Distribution Partner or company-owned distribution warehouse. In the event of part failure, you must provide proof of purchase to your place of purchase or the business which installed the part. Installation labor may be reimbursed, if incurred as a result of the failure of the Professional Parts Group program part. Labor claims will be reviewed on a case by case basis.

This warranty does not cover failure, perforation or defects resulting from accident, damage, abuse or improper installation. This warranty does not apply to commercial vehicles.

The Professional Parts Group shall not be liable for any incidental or consequential damages arising out of the use of its parts.

Some states do not allow exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights. You may also have other rights which may vary from state to state.

This warranty applies to vehicles registered and operated in the United States.

Provides that the placing of a competitive replacement part on an automobile does NOT affect the warranty on the remaining parts.

December 2010 Federal Trade Commission (FTC) offers Consumer Alert stating…

– “Simply using an aftermarket part does not void your warranty. The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act makes it illegal for companies to void your warranty or deny coverage under the warranty simply because you used an aftermarket part.”

Installation of a non-genuine Ford item…does not, in and of itself, render our warranty void.
