Poor Quality Components | 16 February, 1999

We appear to receive certain standard discrete components (1206,0805,&0603)that deviate in size and shape to the extent that vision processing discard rates are through the roof. Does anyone else have problems with vendors being unable to produce consistent component geometries? I have not experienced this problem to this extent in my 10 years in surface mount. Are some vendors growing negletful or careless, or simply following a different standard? Thanks for any help.

However, the company I now work with does continue pressuring both price and quality without sacrificing either - yet.
