Carefully executed assemblies directly impact the performance and reliability of devices and systems. The quality of the assemblies also relates to operational safety and long-term operating costs, as high-quality assembly work prevents malfunctions and thus reduces maintenance costs.
In this blog, we examine how the choice of the right assembly partner affects the quality of the final products.
Well-executed assemblies mean reliable devices
In a well-executed assembly, all components of the device function correctly. This prevents excess friction, operational inaccuracies, or premature wear, ensuring optimal performance and efficiency of the device.
Malfunctions in critical assemblies can lead to costly downtime or even safety risks. Proper assembly reduces component failures and the chances of malfunctions. Additionally, when a system is well-assembled, maintenance tasks are easier to manage.
When assembly components are precisely aligned with each other, installed, and protected correctly, wear is minimized. As a result, devices withstand use better and maintenance costs are reduced. During assembly work, it is also ensured that the device's safety features, such as shields, grounding, and locks, are installed correctly and function as they should.
Assembly has an effect on the energy efficiency of devices
For electronic and electromechanical assemblies, energy efficiency matters. Energy costs are a major concern nowadays, so ensuring the energy efficiency of devices and systems can have a significant impact on their marketability and operating costs.
For example, optimizing settings is an essential part of improving energy efficiency. When motor or pump speeds are adjusted properly during assembly, unnecessary energy consumption and wear-induced efficiency loss can be avoided.
Experience brings efficiency to assembly work
When done by an experienced operator, assemblies are efficient, and production costs remain reasonable. When experts on the field are responsible for assemblies, work is performed quickly and accurately. At Mectalent, collaborative robots, or cobots, are used to assist in mechanical assemblies. Their use in repetitive tasks speeds up assembly time and reduces the possibility of errors.
In summary, high-quality assembly work means reliably functioning devices and systems. Operational reliability translates to fewer downtimes, warranty claims, and product returns, which strain a company's finances and reputation as a reliable operator. Well-manufactured and flawlessly functioning devices and systems are also the cornerstone of customer satisfaction.
Mectalent's assembly services also cover material sourcing and project management
Mectalent's experienced professionals perform mechanical and electromechanical assemblies for our customers. We can manufacture the parts ourselves or purchase the required components. Our sourcing team buys materials and parts from selected suppliers based on strict criteria. Thanks to our strong supplier network, we can respond flexibly to changing situations according to our clients' needs.
In larger projects, such as assembly of automation lines, Mectalent's project manager is responsible for project management. They ensure that the necessary subproject plans have been made and schedules defined. They are also responsible for resource allocation, change management, reporting, and project communication.
Mectalent's versatile services cover not only assemblies and device manufacturing but also various product development services. We can help with mechanical design, automation design, and electronics design. All our work is based on the certified quality systems ISO 9001 and ISO 13485. In the fields of security and aviation, we the requirements of AQAP 2110 and EN 9100 standards into account.
