‘Broken needle policy’ – Case #111

July 17, 2013


“A picture is worth a thousand words”. Practical solutions to problems encountered in the manufacturing process that demonstrate how we assist our customers’ factories to produce Right from the Start TM.

Problem: the factory was not following the “broken needle policy”. (The purpose of this policy is to prevent that tiny broken parts of a needle be left inside the upper, as they would be very difficult to detect once a shoe is made and could cause an injury to the wearer. We implement a procedure to make sure this doesn’t happen)


Impactiva solution: we got factory to follow the “broken needle policy” during upper stitching.
