ESCATEC has demonstrable experience supporting complex mechatronics project requirements. We feel that the full breadth of our electro-mechanical assembly services combined with electronics and electrical capabilities, sets us apart in the marketplace.

Precision Electro-Mechanical Assembly

We produce and ship many complex electro-mechanical assemblies each week, often including a similar number of individual parts to a PCB assembly. With such a high level of moving parts, we often refer to these types of assemblies as ‘machines’ rather than ‘products’ or ‘units’. 

The awareness of critical engineering tolerances and the use of mechanical tools and gauges is key when producing moving mechanical assemblies of this complexity. Our skills and knowledge base also extends to testing mechanical and pneumatic assemblies.

Following rigorous approval processes, our supply chain partners for custom parts - such as plastics, machined and fabricated metalwork, etc. - are closely monitored for quality and delivery performance. Tight control of the material supply chain ensures that, as with electronic parts, the availability of high-quality mechanical parts is maintained for timely production. 

Lean Manufacturing

Interactive electronic documentation, multi-language work instructions and robust variant management controls are just some of the lean principles driving our quality-controlled production lines.

We have considerable experience of establishing lean lines to produce complex mechatronic assemblies. These assemblies can be resourced by between two and ten operators depending on live customer demand. We operate 24-hour replenishment through line-side KanBan-based pull systems which are supported by bar-code tracking to provide real-time operational information.


Electrical Assembly

Many of the mechatronic assemblies produced by ESCATEC require some form of wire or cable interconnections between boards and sub-assemblies. These can be via cable looms and harnesses or point-to-point wiring. We are often called on to produce machines that require critical cable routing, so that the moving parts may function safely. In addition, we also undertake electrical wiring of switch and instrument panels, as well as 19" rack systems and sophisticated control cabinets. 

When required, skilled, time-served wiremen use customers' technical drawings, internally created build packs and test specifications to develop fully integrated rackmount solutions. A high level of accuracy means we capture every detail of the control cabinet configuration and hardware, meaning our services are ideal for OEMs looking for multiple identical electrical installations. Any metalwork modifications to the control cabinets themselves can be carried out in-house and our testing capabilities comprise of continuity, high voltage flash and PAT testing.


Software Control

Software upload, verification, and execution is carried out within the scope of ESCATEC’s robust revision control system. We understand the importance of traceability and can provide historical records of both hardware and software revisions for specific products that we build when requested.
