Part sorting no small task for industry

To the layman, part sorting may seem like a small issue – something that machines should do without worry. Well, that’s not quite the case. Even when parts orders in the millions, part sorting is an essential task that can be overlooked in the supply chain of any company – if you don’t pick a competent partner. But, if you do pick a good partner – a partner like CFI – it can save you significant headaches down the line – whether you are manufacturing something as simple as a basket from wireframes or something as complex as an automobile or an airplane.

We use both optical sorting as well as roll and electronic sorting to ensure that your parts are correctly cataloged. From there, they are barcoded, and can be bagged to ensure that they are easily found when you receive them. At CFI, Logistics is one of our specialties, and if we can help that process for our partners by bagging and tagging their components, then that is a service that we will happily provide.

In addition, beyond simple sorting, we also inspect all of our parts by inspecting them via our QC Department. Our QC Department is second-to-none, and we’ve worked hard to outfit it with the best equipment and train our staff with the most up-to-date training.

So while a person who doesn’t know our business may think that part sorting is no big deal, it certainly is for CFI and its customers. We go out of our way to ensure that you not only get the right parts, but parts that have been through rigorous quality control and through sorting.

That’s the level of quality that you get at CFI. Partnership – it’s as simple as that. For more information about Part Sorting from CFI, call 847-918-0333 or email
