Pre-Production Inspection
Before actual production begins, CTI-CEM can check the raw materials, components, accessories and semi-produced products to detect any potential defects.

During Production Inspection
Normally, it is carried out when 10-15% of the production run has been completed. CTI-CEM conducts batch checks and those products on the production line for possible defects. We provide on-site testing for raw materials and samples (XRF scan) on Request.
CTI-CEM identifies deviations, if any, and offers advice on the corrective measures that are necessary to ensure product of appropriate quality. CTI-CEM will also re-check defects discovered in pre-production inspection and confirm if they have been rectified.
