Nufast Limited provides an on-site facility for Optical sorting, the vast majority of manufacturers and service providers are constantly looking to reduce their PPM levels.
There are numerous reasons why components may require “optical sorting”. Process routes often involving external operations may introduce foreign material into a production batch, alternatively problems could develop at source.
Defects can also originate in the manufacturing process – cracks, dimensional variations and missing threads, which compromise the quality of a production batch.
Due to this end users are now specifying parts are sorted as a routine procedure. “Optical Sorting” then becomes precautionary rather than specific defect related.
