A Bolt. A Simple Part.
Before transferring engine cylinder remanufacture to Sardello, a customer was experiencing a 16% rejection rate on a simple bolt. Not only does Sardello inspect, we also sort by defect. Those that can be restored with simple rework, we restore. Additionally, we will document the reason for rejection for your analysis.
In this case we reduced the rejection rate of these bolts to 4%. That may not seem like a big deal with something like a bolt, but when you take into consideration how much these bolts cost, the new acceptance criteria meant processing an additional 100,000 annually.
We saved the customer thousands of dollars in the initial inspection/cleaning operation.
That was just one small part.
