Uncompromising Quality: Your Guarantee of Excellence

We prioritize quality at every step. Our ISO 9001 system (TÜV Rheinland certified) ensures meticulous quality control throughout R&D, engineering, and environmentally responsible practices. Rigorous checks are integrated into every stage of production, making quality an integral part of who we are.

Rigorous Quality
Culture

Beyond our ISO 9001 foundation, we foster a company-wide culture of quality. Documented procedures, meticulous version control, and robust tracking systems (QR labels, serial numbers, date codes) ensure component traceability and control. Rigorous management of Manufacturing Instructions (MEIs), process control, and all quality checks (AQA, IQC, OQA) guarantees consistent excellence at every stage.

Global Quality
Network

Our commitment to quality extends beyond our facilities. We actively partner with international suppliers and Contract Manufacturers (CMs) to ensure all components meet our exacting standards. This includes regular reviews, supplier surveys, and anomaly feedback mechanisms. We address any identified issues through corrective action reports (CAR) for continuous improvement. Allowing precise funiform quality levels.

Automated Testing Capabilities

Unmatched Quality from Build to Delivery: Our commitment to quality extends beyond the initial build. We leverage a comprehensive suite of over 80 in-line, fully automated testers for ICT, FCT, and FFT, ensuring thorough component evaluation at every stage. Further enhancing reliability, our secure programming system guarantees error-free IC programming for consistent performance across batches. Additionally, we implement firmware version control and secure bootloaders to protect your product’s integrity. Finally, secure quantity release per batch ensures only the exact number of approved components are used, minimizing risk and maximizing security for your peace of mind. This combination of advanced testing, secure programming, firmware control, and controlled component release guarantees unmatched quality and performance in every product we deliver.

Efficient Operations

A meticulous Document Control Center (DCC) manages all documents and facilitates process sign-off, ensuring clear and consistent procedures. Our dedicated Production Engineering (PE) team tackles the optimization challenge. They refine Quality Processes, manage Sample Review, handle Engineering Samples Build (ESB) documentation, and implement process control measures for optimal line balancing.

Quality You Can Trust

This commitment to efficiency, coupled with our rigorous quality practices, translates into highly reliable products, reduced costs, and faster time to market. Explore our product Manufacturing Capabilities – Rosslare Rechargeable difference!
