Many modern devices can’t operate without efficient electrical/electronic circuitry and automated mechanical processes. Beneath these devices’ user-friendly interfaces often lies a complex warren of internal circuitry comprised of many components and elements.
Electromechanical assemblies create efficient communication pathways between electronic and mechanical portions of products to provide seamless user interfaces for operators. Electromechanical assemblies benefit a wide range of computer-assisted technologies, including all types of vehicles, industrial equipment, electric motors, control systems, and medical devices like defibulators.
The electromechanical assembly process involves the successful unification of many operations, including a wide range of procurement, design/fabrication adjustments, equipment inspection, and testing procedures. Due to the complexity of some electromechanical circuitry, a lot of its assembly requires the use of skilled electromechanical assemblers for good execution. Due to these challenges, an increasing amount of businesses are turning to end-to-end electromechanic assemblers to manufacture their products in house from start to finish.
Components of an Electromechanical Assembly
Electromechanical assemblies consist of several operations including:
- prep fabrication of components
- precision machining
- circuit board assembly
- wire and cable assembly
- mechanical enclosure
These manufacturing processes, also known as box-build assemblies, can also accommodate the installation of various subassemblies, gauges, switches, and other types of hardware.
Besides the mechanical control box, one of the most crucial elements of electromechanical assemblies is the wire and cable assembly. These cable assemblies involve processes like harnessing, routing, bundling, termination, and subassembly integration. All wire assemblies, from simple wiring to large complex cable and connector bundles, must efficiently deliver electrical current to the system’s mechanical components. As such, wire harnesses undergo rigorous inspection and testing prior to the assembly process and at completion.
Why End-to-End Assembly?
Many OEMs are turning to end-to-end electromechanical service providers for their assembly needs. Specialized service providers take on complex assembly processes, enabling companies to dedicate more time and resources to manufacturing original equipment. End-to-end processes also result in faster finished products and fewer quality issues.
Clients across the country value our turnkey electromechanical assembly services because they provide full procurement, engineering assistance, and design support during the production process. Additionally, having one entity responsible for procurement, design assistance, and assembly allows greater control over final product quality.
We build intricate designs with state-of-the-art equipment and then effectively communicate models to our internal production departments. This in-house process reduces losses caused by manufacturing errors, miscommunications, and delays. Turnkey solutions also facilitate intelligent designs because we use multi-engineering programs to troubleshoot many different aspects of the product at once.
What’s more, using one company for the electromechanical assembly process simplifies document control. This process places all compliance certifications, design drawing updates, specification requirements, and bills of material at a centralized location, making traceability at any stage of the production process possible.
Adopting an end-to-end turnkey approach simplifies your supply chain and reduces your business expenditures. Products from specialized electromechanical assembly companies cost considerably less than those obtained from separate suppliers, making them more competitive on the market and reducing your bottom line.
