HOW TO: Know When It’s Too Late to Buy QC Equipment

Why do so many converters look at quality control products for your manufacturing process only after there is a problem?  As a manufacturer of web guiding and QC inspection systems, we frequently receive calls only after an issue has occurred, resulting in a substantial financial loss and a significant dent in your company’s revenues.  This has often been referred to as a defensive purchase. Defensive because you either cannot afford another costly QC issue or your customer has stated that you must fix the problem or lose their business. BST North America manufactures a wide assortment of products that are designed to mitigate any future QC issues you may encounter, such as web guiding equipment with the most sophisticated sensors and controllers to ensure your product is produced with precise accuracy. We also manufacture print and surface inspection equipment, which ensures that the product’s quality is within the tolerances you specify from start to finish.

All too often, older equipment relies on outdated web guides that simply cannot perform as well as they did when you purchased them. Time to update!

Quality control equipment should never be a defensive purchase because it already cost you money.  If you look at this as an offensive purchase, it will ensure the highest quality of products leaving your plant, and your customers will be far more satisfied.  So, how much will it cost you not to invest, or how much has it cost you for not investing?
