Kingston Factory in Free Trade Zone - Testing and Packaging

For further testing, every module which leaves the Kingston factory in China is tested for a minimum of 24 hours to ensure quality and reliability. It was interesting to note Kingston were still actively testing (and hence) producing PC100 and PC133 memory in decent quantities. Apparently last week they only just stopped producing the 'ole faithful 72-pin EDO memory.

Once the memory has passed the testing phase, it is then packed into the retail packaging which we are used to seeing from Kingston.

With the memory module tested and packed in the retail packaging, it is then moved to a different part of the factory. Each module has a separate sticker attached to the packaging for tracking purposes as well mentioning the product name, in the case of this batch we saw being produced - 512MB PC2100 modules.

After the stickers with the appropriate information on them have been printed, they are applied to the packaging automatically. The final step is manually packing the modules to be shipping off to Kingston customers around the world. The memory boxes are then sent to storage and wait to be shipped out.
