PRODUCT ASSEMBLY - SINGLE ITEM MANUFACTURE

V. Ryan 2007

 

STAGE SIX: The three pieces of dowel and the two sides are assembled after being glass papered to give a smooth finish. PVA or cascamite adhesives is used to permanently glue the parts together. Once glued the DVD holder cannot be disassembled without breaking it apart.

 

STAGE SEVEN: The DVD holder is then varnished or dyed. The most suitable varnish is called polyurethane varnish. It gives a clear protective layer. If waxed/polished the finish is extremely smooth. The varnish protects the wood from moisture in the air and small knocks and scrapes.

QUALITY CONTROL: This plays a part during every stage of manufacture. Each stage is check by an inspector to ensure the parts that make up the final product are accurately made, finished properly and that the product received by the customer is in perfect condition.

For example, when the template is used to mark out the shape (stage one) the accuracy of the outline is checked visually before it is cut on the fretsaw.

Quality checks are carried out at every stage of making. If this is done properly the product should be in perfect condition when it is ready for display in the shops. Below a magnifying glass is being used by an inspector to check for any defects.
