29 Product safety Metal Contamination Prevention
30 Metal Contamination Prevention Purpose : To define the requirements for the prevention of metal contamination in Nike apparel. Scope : All Nike apparel supplier and subcontractors. This procedure applies to all areas of the production environment including sample rooms. This document describe the minimum requirements for Nike apparel suppliers. Suppliers have additional procedures and controls to accompany the requirements of this procedure Metal contamination & prevention doc. Metal contamination & detection assessment form.
31 Metal Contamination Prevention Procedure : Needle control Applications : Embroidery machines. Sewing machines. Hand sewing machines. Tagging gun When a needle break occurs the following step must be taken. Stop production. Inform supervision. Locate all broken needle fragments. If all fragments can not be found immediately separate the affected product. In s designated metal free area such as the metal detection area metal detect the separated product using a conveyor or hand held metal detector. If affected product passes metal detection locate it can be return to the production area.
32 Metal Contamination Prevention If affected product does not pass metal detection and dose not locate needle fragments the destroy affected product. Up date broken needle log. Thoroughly clean the affected equipment and production area ( i.e. sewing machine, work table, storage bins, floor,etc) Have an authorized person replace the needle. Resume production. If needle fragments not found then make missing needle inquiry report.
33 Metal Contamination Prevention Procedure : 2. Tools and metal component control. Application : Nails in embroidery y( Control) Scissors in cutting ( Control ) Scissors in sewing ( Tied ) Clippers in sewing ( Tied ) Tagging gun in packing ( control) All control metal component should have documents for daily issuance and reciving. All tied metal component tied with rope at place of working.
34 Metal Contamination Prevention When needle breaks Machine is stopped and the operator searches for the broken needle parts
35 Metal Contamination Prevention Needle Parts are brought in magnetic box to needle issuer and needle is issued upon receiving all the broken fragments
36 Metal Contamination Prevention If broken needle part is not found
37 Metal Contamination Prevention Magnetic Burster is used in the Production floor when the broken needle part is not found on the machine bed to ensure free metal contaminated area.
38 Metal Contamination Prevention Magnetic Burster is used in the Production floor when the broken needle part is not found on the machine bed to ensure free metal contaminated area.
39 Metal Contamination Prevention Metal Detection is done on bundles around work station.
40 Metal Contamination Prevention HANDY METAL DETECTION MACHINE If MD machine is beeped then needle is located with handy machine
41 Metal Contamination Prevention All Metallic Tools like clippers, scissors tag guns etc are Tagged to their workstations in a safe way.
42 Metal Contamination Prevention All Metallic Tools in workshops are kept in a controlled area and log book is maintained
43 Metal Contamination Prevention
44 Metal Contamination Prevention Tag guns and carton sealing dispenser are also controlled through h log book
45 Metal Contamination Prevention All Accessories like Snaps, Zippers and Drawcords are passed through Metal Detection Machine before issuing to Sewing.
46 Metal Contamination Prevention Needle is issued with broken needle inquiry i form if needle part is not found after all the process

Note : In production area using two machine ( 200 %) and in embroidery / print area using one machine ( 100 % ).
50 METAL DETECTION
51 METAL DETECTION Embroidery / print panel metal detection ti Packed garment metal detection
52 METAL DETECTION Obtain finish garments sealed in poly bags from the manufacturing area. Scan garments one at a time using the first metal detector ( metal detector # 1 in figure1). After the first scan in metal detector # 1, rotate the garment 90 degrees and flip garment up side down. Scan rotated ttdand dflipped garment using the second metal tl detector # 2 in figure 1). If either metal detector alarm is triggered. Separate the effected product. Locate the contamination using a hand held metal detector. Remove the contaminant and re-scan the garment using the conveyor detectors to ensure that no further contamination is present. If contamination is not found and alarm is still triggering then garment will be consider as rejected.
53 METAL DETECTION Locate the contamination with hand held metal detector
54 METAL DETECTION Metal Detection Machine sensitivity check with 9.0 calibration system on hourly basis. Kit passes through Metal detection machine 9 times. Make sure kit should put in different area of metal detection machine. Make sure contamination should be 1 mm diameter and position of contamination also change during sensitivity test.
55 METAL DETECTION
56 METAL DETECTION All metal detection calibration machines should be calibrated by the third party after each 3 months. The calibration certificate should display in Metal detection room.
57 METAL DETECTION The following record should keep for two years. 1. Daily Metal detection log. 2. Metal detection machine sensitivity check report. 3. Metal detection machine calibration certificates. Nike s metal detection doc.
