To address the increased need for quality assurance and critical control points on manufacturer production lines, A&D Corp., San Jose, Calif., formed A&D Inspection.

A natural extension of the A&D Weighing division, A&D Inspection leverages years of technology leadership in precision weighing with the initial introduction of two flagship products—the AD-4961 Series checkweigher and AD-4971 Series metal detector – which offer innovative solutions to ensure accurate inspection in a wide range of in-line and assembly line processes. 

“We know our customers—whether they are smaller businesses or large-scale manufacturers—need high-performance, high-quality products that are customizable, flexible and affordable to give them a competitive advantage in the marketplace,” says Terry Duesterhoeft, president and CEO. “This new business division allows us to leverage the longevity and expertise of our weighing business and the DSP technology of our automotive and instrumentation businesses to bring these new products to the industry.”

“We are proud to offer our customers these high-quality solutions that will set new standards for performance and precision on production lines and a range of in-line processes,” adds Daniel Cannistraci, product manager for A&D Inspection.
