  • After the dust explosion in Kunshan, Jiangsu Province last Saturday, local safety supervisor requested 40 processing companies including Foxconn to suspend operations partially for self-checking.

    Foxconn (Kunshan) is one of the designated factory for producing parts of Apple products, and it is reported that the suspension of operations may affect the production of iPhone 6.

    JIANGSU, August 4, SinoCast -- Affected by the explosion in Kunshan on August 2, the local safety supervision department has decided to require a number of enterprises including Foxconn to suspend operation and conduct self-examination.

    This move will pay close attention to the polishing link in mobile phone production. Foxconn's Kunshan factory is one of factories producing products for Apple Inc. and iPhone 6's aluminum body must be go through the polishing link, so the operation suspension is very likely to affect the production of iPhone 6.

    Several media exposed iPhone 6 adopts an aluminum body. The magnesium alloy and aluminum body polishing link was suspended this time because an explosion will occur when the two kinds of dusts meet with open fire.

    It's not Lie. Local china government shut down all polishing factory to inspect the safety.

  • It's headline news in china. just google for it.

    A massive dust explosion at a metal polishing factory in China's Jiangsu province, which claimed 75 lives and injured hundreds, has triggered a nationwide production halt and safety inspection, which may affect Foxconn's output, reports have suggested.

    According to inside sources, the national work safety authority has sent dust experts to carry out investigations and ordered all polishing workshops — including Foxconn's facility — across China, to stop production and begin self-inspection on production safety.

    As a result, the source expects the production of the iPhone 6, Xiaomi 4, and MX4 to be affected.

    The body of Apple's upcoming smartphone, and its Chinese counterparts and rivals, are made of an aluminum alloy, which must then be polished. The process, however, often causes flammable metal dust to flow in the air. In the Kunshan tragedy on Saturday, high-density aluminum dust began to accumulate in a badly-ventilated workshop and ignited.

    The incident is considered to be the biggest industry accident this year, according to China Labour Bulletin, a Hong Kong-based non-governmental labour organization.
