The inspectors of CLI Inspection Company can’t remember how many times they came to this furniture factory in Xiamen. The main product of this Xiamen factory is assembling sofa beds and children’s animal chairs. It has been a small-scale cooperation with CLI’s American customers for many years, but fortunately, the factory still pays attention to quality. Every time after a sofa bed inspection at a CLI inspection company, it will Make some quality improvements, which is one of the reasons why their products can get better.
When the guests first started to cooperate with this factory, they commissioned a third party inspection company to conduct pre-shipment inspection of the furniture factory. During the sofa bed inspection process, CLI inspection company found that this product has a lot of problems. It found that the sofa legs are stuck in the bottom, the metal plate is missing, the tread is defective, the parts are missing, the sofa legs are defective, and many other quality problems. During the stress test, the sofa legs were cut directly from the wooden frame, please see the test result picture.
Dare to ask, if this product does not go through sofa bed inspection, it will be shipped directly to American customers, what problems will occur. Not only will customers face a large number of complaints and damage their own brands, but the quality of such products lacks safety and may even jeopardize the lives of consumers.
After the product inspection, the factory also realized the seriousness of the product problem and reworked all the products to ensure product quality. In the subsequent Sofa bed inspection, CLI inspection company found that the quality of the factory has been better and better.
In this inspection, the factory not only improved the process problems of the thread, but also improved the problem of product decolorization. Since the last inspection, we found that the darker sofa beds had obvious discoloration problems, and reflected the problem to the factory and customers, so in this product, the factory changed the black to extra black , Choose a color with stronger color fastness, and find that there is indeed a significant improvement in decolorization during inspection.
The quality of sofa bed products has indeed been getting better and better, but the quality of sofa legs outsourced to other factories is unsatisfactory. During sofa bed inspection, it was found that the proportion of sofa legs rust accounted for 25%. The sofa legs were dirty, oily, scratched, and many other appearance problems. The upper and lower covers had large gaps and were not tight. See the product picture of the sofa bed below.
If the consumer can feel the value for money when seeing the sofa bed, then the sofa legs will make her immediately dismiss the idea. Although the sofa legs are at the bottom, they will not pay attention to it in daily use, but when consumers see such sofa legs during the assembly process, they will definitely discount the impression of the entire product. You may even feel that you have bought second-hand products. In the process of product pre-shipment inspection, the inspector immediately reflected the problem with the head of the factory. The factory also realized the seriousness of the problem and immediately proposed to replace all defective sofa legs. Although they are outsourced parts, quality control is equally important.
The CLI inspection company has cooperated with the factory for many years, and it is gratifying to see that the factory’s products are getting better and better, and it is also very hard to improve the problems raised in each inspection. The meaning of inspection itself is not simply to find the problem and reflect the problem, but to improve the quality of the product in the repeated inspection.
