The reception process

Upon receipt of the shipment at its premises Valcambi inspects the received parcels, boxes and containers with respect to outside damage, the number of parcels/containments weight, the kind of metal received and other contingent non-conformities such as radioactivity. From 80% of all received metal deliveries a sample is taken to perform a preliminary analysis.

The material will then be weighed, homogenized and sampled in presence of the Client's Representative, provided that the Client has exercised its right to be represented.

A representative sample is of utmost importance to the Client and to all further internal processes. We guarantee our Clients the best homogenization techniques and sampling methods for any kind of metal. All data from each delivery is recorded in Valcambi’s SAP system for the safety and reference of our Clients and to ensure full control of each batch in our ERP system.
