Sorting Inspection

A Sorting Inspection (SI) can be carried out as a pre or post packaging inspection. A piece by piece inspection is performed on every item to evaluate general appearance, workmanship, function, safety and etc. as specified by you. The SI allows for the removal of all defective products from a shipment. Upon completion, all products which pass inspection are then sealed with HQTS stickers. This ensures that every piece included in the shipment meets your specified quality requirements.

Either at your location or your supplier’s location, HQTS provides both visual inspection piece by piece inspection and sorting to improve quality and minimize or eliminate defects. Our comprehensive quality control sorting inspections will help to prevent defects, metal contamination, and other defect issues from reaching your customer and forcing further action, costs, and loss of business.
