Extra parts are often needed for warranties, repairs, and defects. Instead of taking care of all the replacement part needs on your own, you can rely on a rubber manufacturing company to help with the process. With multiple options available, you can make the rubber replacement process go smoothly and fit your needs.
Check out four different ways a rubber company can help you with the manufacturing and distribution of rubber replacement parts to help fill repair and warranty needs.
1. Custom Bar Codes & Shipping Labels
There are many times where customers or retail stores want to have replacement parts shipped directly. Instead of adding an extra step to the process and having the parts go to your warehouse, you have the option to add direct shipments from a rubber manufacturer.
For retail businesses, a rubber company can add custom bar codes associated with the specific part. The barcode allows retailers to easily track the part, order new parts, and keep their personal inventory. When you have individual orders come in, a rubber company can print out custom shipping labels and bagged packages to transport the items.
The elimination of an extra step will ensure customers remain happy and will help resources reach customers quickly.
2. Custom Package & Branding
Even if you have replacement parts ordered directly from a company, you still have the chance to add your own custom branding information. Custom packaging may include your brand logo, brand colors, and contact information.
Before you begin shipping out custom parts, you have the option to plan and select the packaging to fit your needs. Bagged packages and small boxes are typically created to fit your part, but you may have extra room to include catalogs, brochures, or business cards.
The branding helps customers remember your company and allows individuals to associate with your brand when specific parts or services come to mind.
3. Part Adjustments & Changes
In some cases, you may need to change a part to offer different specifications. For example, a rubber O-ring may need a little more thickness. A rubber manufacturer can offer direct changes to your part, save part designs for future use, and provide batch parts if needed for replacement.
The part adjustments are ideal for any recalls or mass warranty claims on products. Through part adjustments, you can process changes quickly and rush out expedited orders if needed.
4. Lot Traceability
One of the more important features for any replacement part you create is lot traceability. When you manufacture parts or make changes to original parts, you can track each one through lot traceability. The parts themselves could have numbers printed on them.
The numbers refer to the lot that is manufactured and will allow you to track down the specific size and changes that were made. The packaging for the parts may also feature the number. This allows you to easily compare and look up parts without the need to open packages or physically examine parts.
After a couple of years, you could have multiple versions of the same part. The lot traceability process will help you stay completely organized. A system set up at a rubber company will ensure quality control and you do not have to constantly guess which parts came from where or when they were manufactured.
