Sorting & Inspection Services

At Blue Grass Manufacturing Co. of Lexington Inc., we offer sorting and inspection services to suppliment customers' manufacturing processes. Our services are especially valuable in high volume or automated manufacturing applications where a defective part can stall an entire production line. Applications for inspection services include sorting of incoming parts for forming, molding or casting defects, correct assembly, insufficient or excessive plating, paint defects, or other issues. Lot numbers or date codes from the defective parts can be recorded and problem parts can be quarantined for return to the vendor. Acceptable parts can be packed into the original containers correcting for count with makeup parts or specially packaged and weigh counted according to customer needs.

Sorting may be done by visual inspection, go/no go gauging, or customer provided check fixtures. If economically feasible, problem parts can be reworked in-house. We can work with customers to have parts sent directly from their vendor to our facility for incoming inspection. Complete reports regarding the percentage of defective parts, the type and degree of defect, and affected lot numbers can also be provided. In addition, our six sigma trained staff can work with customers in developing better process controls to prevent future part issues. For more information about our sorting and inspection capabilities, see the table below, or contact us directly.
