How Does Our ‘New Build’ Process Work?

Your production line can have a brand new inspection equipment system in six simple steps.

  • 1) SALES – The process starts with a call or meeting with you. We will ask a few questions regarding the products that will be inspected, any retailer specifications your factory is working to and the environment of the production line.
  • 2) QUOTE – From gathering all the information needed and from speaking with our design team, we will send you a formal quote based on your requirements.
  • 3) CAD – Once everything has been agreed on the quote, our CAD designers will draft a CAD design. This is drafted three days of your business being satisfied with the quote.
  • 4) BUILD – After the CAD has been approved by yourselves, our workshop engineers will get to work! Our workshop engineers will start to piece the system together starting with the frame working all the way through to adding the belts and guards.
  • 5) PDI – We invite all our customers to a ‘PDI’ (Pre Delivery Inspection) at your local SNB office. This gives our customers a chance to see their machine prior to delivery day.
  • 6) DELIVERY – The final step is the delivery and commissioning of your newly built machine. One of our engineers will attend site to commission and show your operators how to use your new detection system.
