Its me again, Margaret! Sorry if I seem ignorant, but I am! Can someone help us with a definition of Special Processes? I know what the standard says but that doesn't help much. We use ultra-sonic welders to put inserts into plastic parts...is that a special process? It would be obvious before a end user customer got it if the insert were'nt right because the next step of assembly would be impossible. We also apply paint to plastic parts...is that a special process? It is the most part, decoration only.
