The manufacturing industry accounts for about 10% of the UK’s economic output. Because this is such a large and important sector, it’s critical for businesses to take advantage of the latest technologies when creating goods and services.
Precision assembly is one of the most streamlined and effective ways to create a high-quality and uniform production output. Read on to learn what precision assembly is and how it can help your business.
What Is Precision Assembly?
Precision assembly is also called “precision machining.” It’s a manufacturing process that relies on modern equipment to create intricate and complex product output.
Precision assembly uses an automated computer numerical control (CNC) machine. These machine tools are entirely computerized. They function via computer-aided design software.
The engineer looking to create the end product inputs specifications for the output. The machine uses this programming as a blueprint to automatically create complex cuts according to its specifications.
This means that you’ll get the desired output automatically and with the detail and precision that you’re looking for. It also means uniform production across all products and components.
Precision assembly is used in a wide range of industries. The consumer electronics market is one of the most common. CNC tooling can create circuit boards, wiring, connectors, clamps, switches, and more.
Electronics applications also extend to commercial output in multiple industries. You can create CNC prototypes for industrial machinery and parts. Electronics made with precision assembly methods can also be used in the automotive, aerospace, and manufacturing/construction markets.
In addition to electronics, precision assembly can also help you make both hard and soft goods. Hard goods include jewelry, chains, door locks, lawn products, kitchenware, and more. Soft goods are things like clothing, safety equipment, and home furnishings.
Meets Complex Specifications
Manual tools for product creation can only be so detailed. You will need to position tools at precise angles and constantly move and rework them.
This is not the case with CNC machining because all you need to do is create the design in user-friendly computer software. The machine then assesses the design and comes up with the best way to bring it to life.
At that point, it will use the fastest and most effective machining methods to create a design that matches the exact specifications of your input. Every line, crease, seam, and crevice will be accounted for. This lets you assemble products effectively since every piece will fit perfectly.
You do not even need to learn how to use high-level machine tools to take advantage of precision assembly. All you need to do is fine-tune your design within the computer software. You can then outsource the actual production to a third-party company that is versed in how to use the machining tools.
Shield Works Precision Assembly is experienced in manufacturing in China. When you outsource work to us, you’re sending it to an international team willing to assemble your products at a low rate.
However, unlike many internationally-outsourced services, we pride ourselves on advanced software monitoring systems, IPR production, and open access. This lets us create all kinds of products according to international working standards and practices.
So, you will reap the benefits of outsourcing. You will save time, money, space, and effort by not doing everything in-house. However, you can also rest assured that those assembling your products will use high-level machinery and professional techniques to ensure a job well done.
High Product Quality
Reliability doesn’t stop with top-notch production methods. It also means a high-quality output.
Our facilities operate with ISO standard internal quality work practices. Part of this means undergoing rigorous quality testing for each and every project.
Before sending the end product back to you for sale or distribution, we use dual-layer independent quality verification on every piece of output. We make sure that it’s sturdy, durable, and properly constructed. We also make sure that it functions as intended with no hazards.
This is essential because your end-users will be satisfied enough to work with you again. It also helps you to avoid product liability lawsuits because of faulty products.
In addition to quality, precision assembly ensures a uniform output. People who need to manually create products (by hand or with machinery) are likely to make mistakes. This means time and money are lost due to understandable human failure.
With precision assembly, this problem solves itself. Since the user only needs to input the pre-made software blueprint while the machine does the rest of the work, there is close to zero chance of error.
There won’t be any faulty products or improper cuts. Instead, you will get a uniform output that is the same every time. Whether you plan to wow consumers with precise products or use them in further precise assembly processes, this can help to streamline your business.
Precision assembly is quick because it’s automated. The minute a machine finishes one product, it can move on to the next one. This next output will be a precise replica of the previous one, and once it’s complete, the machine can instantly start yet another.
Because these machines do not need time to rest, they can simply keep making products until your order is complete. They can work overnight and on the weekends. They don’t need to take time to pause between projects.
This means that you can get products to end users as quickly as possible. You will have happier clients and retain more business.
