Candle Vent Stick Rework & Inspection
Problem: A Taiwan manufacturer had 160,0000 packages in 16 different vent stick fragrances and heads. The heads on the vent sticks had a defective paint coating which was deteriorating within the packaging due to the strong fragrance inside.
Solution: LPM created a process to inspect and rework the packages:
- During the inspection, 57,582 good units were found, returned to original case and inner box packaging to be staged for return.
- Removed 4 vent sticks out of packaging and took the defective heads off each scented vent stick body.
- Mounted new heads back on the scented vent stick bodies and repackage with new materials.
- Corrected units were repacked in original inner and master carton.
Results: LPM arranged pick up of the defective units in Massachusetts, reworked the packages and sent back the corrected units and the good units found during inspection within the specified drop-dead dates and budget.
