SLIDEMATIC has developed various inventory programs to ensure product availability to our customers. These programs can greatly reduce the amount of frustration and cost that is attributed to rush orders, overnight delivery, and shutdown lines. We have had excellent results with all of the following programs:

Blanket order stocking program – This program is best suited for those customers that have an excellent knowledge of the parts that are used consistently on an annual basis. We will manufacture part or all of your annual usage and hold the parts in our inventory until you have requirements for them. This ensures that you will have parts when you need them, especially when requirements come up with little or no notice.

Consignment stocking program – This program is similar to the above except that the parts are inventoried at your own location. Parts will be invoiced as you use them. This program cuts down the cost of partial truckloads and rush shipments, reduces inventories to daily levels and is extremely easy to institute and monitor.

Offsite stocking program – This program is for customers that have a large volume of parts but do not have the space for consignment inventory. We will inventory the parts at a Slidematic operated warehouse near your location.

Minimum inventory levels – Another way to ensure inventory is to review all parts and supply us with a minimum inventory level for each one. We will track your inventory usage and watch for any parts that have fallen below the minimum.

Bin Stocking – Slidematic also has several types of bin stocking programs. We will not only stock parts for you we will also fill bins right on your assembly lines. This ensures that you will not run out of parts.

KAN BAN– This program is for customers that pick up with their own trucks. We will fill special re-usable containers with parts. Then just drop off empty bins for us to re-fill when you arrive for a shipment.

In Late 2012 with Customer’s demand for 100% Quality Slidematic audited our outside vision sorting contractors; we determined that for continuous improvement we would have to increase our internal vision sorting capacity as well as expand our capabilities. Since converting the majority (over 95%) of our vision sorted parts to our internal processes we have not had a defect reach our customers with an inspected dimension.

A majority of our machines incorporate telecentric lenses for the highest accuracy. Along with the latest in PC Hardware and our highly customizable software we are able to sort for features throughout the entirety of your part. Some of the most basic inspections involve Lengths (Overall, Under Head, Head Height) and Diameters (Head, Major, Minor, Patch Verification). We also have the capability to verify Helix Angle, Punch Penetration and other features based on the parts requirement.

Slidematic also has a rigorous boundary sample program in place that verifies our equipment at pre-determined time intervals. Real part samples are created that represent the upper and lower limits of dimensions to use during this testing process. We then log these results which become tied with the Lot Number should a need to reference that data arise.
