Lot Minimum Policy

Hi-Tech-Metal-Finishing-Lot-MinimumTo serve our customers more cost-efficiently, we’ve established a lot minimum for processing smaller orders. We recognize the impact of lot minimums on multi-process jobs. That’s why we’ve implemented a policy where we waive the lot minimums associated with each job following the top three lot minimums.

Terms and Conditions

Multiple processes will be charged up to the highest 3 lot minimums. All subsequent lot minimum charges will be waived.

Multiple parts grouped (“batched”) together on a single PO with identical processing/specifications will be charged 1 lot minimum per process, if applicable, plus a $10 fee for each additional part number/line item. Due to processing requirements, Cadmium Plating (rack, brush, and barrel), Part Marking, Zinc Nickel Plating, and Magnetic Particle are not subject to this exemption. Parts must be received at the same time to apply.

*Lot charges will be charged at full cost regardless of lot size. They are not subject to the multiple process waivers. There will be no unit costs for these processes.

Stripping charges will be the same as the lot minimum for the processes being stripped.

Lot minimums and/or lot charges may not include the cost of non-stock/specialty paints, salt spray testing, tensile strength testing, shot peen, and any additional operations not listed.
