Having faith in your Asian manufacturers is good. But we know, from experience, that having the right monitoring is better.

 

Even high-quality products made by the best and most experienced manufacturers can contain defects. LGTI provides two interconnected inspection services in order to be able to detect all relevant defects and have them corrected as early on as possible:

We have a team of inspectors with extensive manufacturing and inspection experience ready to carry out both types of inspection.

We divide all defects detected during the inspection process into two categories: major defects and minor defects.

Major defects
Major defects have a significant negative effect on a product’s saleability and usability and/or breach important provisions of legislation, such as prescribed safety standards. Major defects usually result in the entire batch of products being rejected.

Minor defects
Minor defects are a sign of sub-optimal craftsmanship but do not directly affect a product’s saleability or usability. Minor defects represent a failure to meet a customer’s specified quality requirements and normally mean that the manufacturer has to reject or repair the products in question. Once that has been done, LGTI conducts a pre-shipment inspection of the goods in order to check that the specified improvements have been made. This saves you spending a lot of time and unnecessary money on shipping products back or disposing of them.

During production

During production inspection - Early detection of potential defects in production
The during production inspection is carried out once crucial steps in the production process have been completed. Essential components should be inspected and approved at this point in time. This means that any potential product defects will be detected early enough to ensure that there is sufficient time left and that there are sufficient courses of action available for safeguarding the product.

Tooled sampl approval
A check should also be carried out at this point in time to see whether the improvements specified in the optimisation rounds prior to the tooled sample approval have been incorporated into the product. This approval determines the subsequent quality level of the goods if the tooled sample, i.e. the first unit manufactured using the original tools which are to be used in subsequent series production, meets the specified quality requirements.

  • The combination of during-production inspection and pre-shipment inspection ensures that even greater efficiency and reliability of supply are achieved on account of early intervention in the production process
  • You can continuously check whether the latest modifications have been incorporated and implemented
  • You have the opportunity to make on-the-spot modifications as part of the manufacturing process and to make last-minute adjustments
  • You receive a detailed inspection report usually within 24 hours of the inspection

Pre shipment

Pre-shipment inspection - Prevention of defective shipments
The pre-shipment inspection is carried out at the end of the manufacturing process. During this inspection, random samples of finished products are taken in accordance with the agreed “accepted quality level” (AQL) and checked against the jointly defined inspection criteria. The AQL determines the maximum acceptable number of defective products in a random sample taken from across all packaging units. This process has been adapted in line with the quality requirements of the American military (MIL-STD-105D).

In order to generate maximum transparency and prevent any misunderstandings right from the outset, we decide on the AQL together with the customer before we embark on any work together and make it clear what this means in terms of the percentage of defective units to be expected in any delivery batch.

  • Our customers save time and money as this significantly reduces the number of return shipments to China
  • Before the goods you have ordered have even left China to be shipped to Europe, you can be safe in the knowledge that they meet your quality standards as well as all legal specifications and other standards
  • Continuous product quality assurance enables you to improve security of supply for your markets and marketing events (e.g. trade fairs)
  • The results of every LGTI inspection are discussed directly with manufacturers’ technicians. Any resulting optimisations become part of a continuous quality improvement cycle with your suppliers
