Pre-production raw material inspection is crucial for verifying quality and consistency before manufacturing begins. Our experts thoroughly examine all incoming raw materials, including comprehensive checks on material properties, specifications, compliance, and defect detection. This prevents vendors from substituting lower-cost substandard materials that could jeopardize product quality. We ensure raw materials match required manufacturing properties to avoid processing issues. This rigorous inspection process upholds material integrity, mitigates risks of defects, and gives customers confidence in product excellence.

In Process Inspection

4. In-Process Inspection

It involves performing periodic quality checks throughout the manufacturing process to identify and prevent defects early on. Our experts carry out inspections at critical production stages to verify the product meets all specifications for dimensions, finishes, assembly precision, markings, and other attributes as it is being fabricated. Through rigorous in-process inspections, we uphold quality standards across the whole manufacturing process – not just inspecting the final product, but proactively controlling the process to prevent problems. This active inline quality monitoring provides customers with assurance and peace of mind.

Final Inspection

5. Final Inspection

During final inspection, our experts thoroughly examine the finished products. We audit all critical characteristics including dimensions, materials, appearance, functionality, performance, markings, workmanship, and more. Products undergo comprehensive diagnostic and tests to validate full compliance. We reject any product with defects and only release ones meeting quality expectations. Stringent final inspections safeguard that only products completing the entire production process successfully reach the customer. This provides assurance that quality and reliability are built into every item shipped.

Pre Shipment Inspection

During pre-shipment inspection, our experts thoroughly examine products using accepted sampling plans. We audit critical characteristics like specifications, quantity, packaging, marking, functionality, appearance and more per the customer’s needs. This helps identify any defects post-production and prevent non-conforming goods from being shipped. If any defect is found, we can request rework or replacement prior to shipment. Our rigorous pre-shipment checks safeguard customer satisfaction. We ensure all purchase parameters are met so customers have full confidence at the point of handover.

Container Loading Inspection

Our experts verify:
● Product integrity – inspect for any defects, cracks, dents before loading.
● Proper stacking/arrangement – ensure heavy items on bottom, no tipping hazards.
● Secure unitization – check pallets are shrink-wrapped, banded properly.
● Full container load – products fully cubed out, no excess empty space.
● Clearances – adequate spacing from walls/doors to prevent shifting.
● Weather protection – waterproofing applied if shipping exposed containers.
● Locking/seals – tamper-evident seals applied and lock engaged.
● Documentation – shipping docs match load contents and purchase order.
● Photos – capture loading process and final loaded configuration.
Thorough container loading inspection protects cargo security and delivers peace of mind. We ensure optimum load configuration so contents withstand vibration, moisture, shocks en route. This prevents load shifting and product damage during shipping. Our loading experts get it right the first time.

First Article Inspection

During first article inspection, we thoroughly check the dimensional accuracy, materials, finishes, functionality, performance, and other critical characteristics of the first article piece against the engineering drawings and specifications. Comprehensive testing and measurement are conducted to validate complete conformance. Any non-conformances found are immediately addressed and corrected.

Quality Control FAQs

While there’s multiple mistakes that can be made when considering quality control in China, we have found that the most common are:
● Not properly evaluating the credibility of suppliers.
● Not performing onsite inspections of China suppliers.
● Properly evaluating the credibility of suppliers can help to avoid factories that will be problematic with quality control processes, and onsite inspections can help you avoid trade companies, as well as ensure quality control processes are in place and consistently followed.

The price range for quality control will range widely. It will largely depend on the company you chose to provide services, as well as the specific services you need performed.Β 

This is actually a misnomer. Quality control isn’t better in America, it’s just that it’s harder to make sure quality control processes are followed in China. The common reasons for this include:
● Language barriers (many high-quality factories in China don’t have staff that can speak English).
● Supervision difficulty (it’s far more difficult to travel to China and supervise production than it is to do the same at a local factory).
● The manufacturing industry in China is extremely robust, and there are many factories that are capable of understanding, and following, strict quality control processes. Many companies rely on third-party expertise to help supervise quality control in a China factory (like relying on the services of a sourcing specialist, like Kanary).

There are multiple strategies you can use to avoid quality problems during the manufacturing process:
● Provide clear expectations for quality control procedures to manufacturers.
● Supervise production to ensure that quality control processes are followed.
● Respond quickly to production issues as they arise.

It depends on when you find product defects. If you only notice product defects when the bulk order has been delivered to its final destination, it’s largely too late to take meaningful action. You can attempt to send the products back and get a refund, but that still won’t give you the time you lost back, and it will still tie up capital while you renegotiate with a supplier.

If you find product defects during production (which may happen, especially if quality control processes are being closely followed), you should:
● Determine what is causing the defect.
● Make production changes or material changes as needed.
● Work closely with your China factory to ensure the problem has been resolved.

The best way to make sure that products meet your quality expectations is to:
● Set clear expectations of what your quality expectations are before production.
● Supervise quality control onsite.
● Respond quickly as production issues arise.
● Perform a final inspection before products are shipped.

Choosing a china supplier is challenging, but it’s worth the effort. This is especially true since choosing a high-quality factory will reduce the likelihood (but not eliminate) of issues with quality control. Here are some tips to follow in order to choose a high-quality factory in China:
● Research multiple options that may fit your needs.
● Filter choices based on their experience, product specialty, lead times, and communication skills.
● Always perform a thorough sampling process.
● Allow as much time as needed to follow these tips without feeling rushed.
If you think that your business doesn’t have the time, resources, or expertise to find a factory in China that’s a good fit, you may want to look to the services of a sourcing specialist, like Kanary.

This is a mixed answer. Your supplier should absolutely participate in your quality control strategy, but they should not be left to be solely responsible for following it. Whether quality control processes are followed is ultimately up to you, so you can’t afford to leave it entirely up to your supplier to handle.

While the manufacturing industry in China is well-developed, there are some unique challenges to maintaining quality control in a China factory. Some of those challenges are:
● Language barriers.
● Improper or unclear expectations of quality.
● Inability to react quickly to production issues (unless you’re physically present).
● Inability to ensure quality control processes are followed by not being onsite during production.
