Before conducting inspections, AQI technical engineers need to understand your product characteristics to determine key risks. By combining our Inspection Checklist with your unique product specifications and quality requirements, each inspection can be customized.
We will identify and classify defects based on your Acceptance Quality Limits (AQL), verify the quality of mass production, perform product function and reliability tests on-site, and assess your compliance with product specifications and sizes.
Assess the quality of your product materials and workmanship, using a number of quality control checks and tests, including:
|Barcode scanning test||General function check|
|Accessories check||Assembly check/Pipe thread Accuracy|
|Water Leakage check||Stability/Wobble base check|
|Valve Closure||Hot and Cold Water Fatigue Test|
|Carton drop test||Humidity check|
|Weight check/Loading test||Colour comparison check|
|Water Flow Test||Product size measurement|
Final Assembly Inspection
The purpose of this inspection process is to verify that all bathroom hardware products on the assembly queue have been assembled correctly to ensure that all necessary tools are properly connected and/or moulded to comply with different quality control requirements. For materials made of steel, copper, bronze, etc., the inspection process will include the inspection and confirmation of dimensions, weight, and dimensions.
Weight Check and Size Measurement
The purpose of this inspection process is to verify that each bathroom hardware product inspected has the same weight, installation, and specifications, and is consistent with the technical specifications specified by the customer and before production.
Inspectors randomly sample and inspect the finished bathroom hardware products, and confirm that the product measurement results are within the specified weight/size limit capacity to ensure that all products can be used reliably before shipment.
Mechanical/Valve Closure inspection
The purpose of this inspection process is to verify that no defects or damages are found on any plumbing products used for bathroom hardware, to ensure that once the product is shipped, there will be no mechanical problems. Each mechanical bathroom hardware device will undergo valve testing to determine the ability of the faucet, bidet, etc. to withstand water pressure.
Water Flow test
Install the faucet on the nozzle flow pressure seal test board according to the test requirements. This indicator is to evaluate whether the water flow of the faucet meets the specifications and water-saving requirements.
