THIS MORNING Clemco Quality Assurance Inspector Rick Frick is giving an RPH-2 900 CFM Dust Collector the once over.

Next, he verifies that the controls in the electrical panel are set properly and that its wiring is correct. Rick has been with Clemco 30 years, but he has been manning Clemco’s new Test and Inspection Cell for only one year—the Test and Inspection Cell was established a year ago as part of Clemco’s new Factory Acceptance Program.
