ASSEMBLY AND TESTING
ASSEMBLY, INTEGRATION, AND TESTING
The assembly, integration & test (AIT) phase is essential. It comprises the assembly of components before the system is aligned, tested, and qualified.
Integration is the penultimate moment in any project, entailing the assembly of all components prior to aligning, testing, and qualifying the system. At Micromatics, we deploy the resources needed to handle micro to macro instruments, check their dimensions, and test it by every possible way as per customer requirements and we provide solutions as well.
Our AIT department is mainly responsible for:
- Assembly, integration and testing of optical systems
- Environmental qualification of systems
- Packing and delivering optical systems
- System installation on site
- Maintenance and calibration
The integration team is in charge of assembling opto-mechanical, electro-mechanical, systems, and subsystems, as well as performing metal-metal and glass-metal bonding operations.
They also take charge of alignment and testing, to make sure that the system meets all customer specifications, especially for optical quality and interfaces.
Depending on customer needs, this team also takes charge of operating special tools, integrating command-control functions and wiring the motors needed to operate the system.
The department is also in charge of packing the system, to ensure trouble-free shipping to our customers.
Micromatics has about 1,000 square meters of controlled-atmosphere assembly areas. These areas limit the concentration of dust particles (up to Class IS0 5 for space projects in particular), enabling us to assemble and test systems under optimized cleanliness conditions.
Separated from the production areas, the integration building is designed and built to offer a high degree of stability, and thus guarantee the accuracy of optical measurements.
TESTING & QUALIFICATION
Each system undergoes an internal acceptance test, possibly followed by a customer acceptance test in the plant. All specifications are checked using standard instruments or special test benches. Micromatics naturally deploys a full range of test instruments and systems (CMM, self-collimating viewfinder, MMT, 3D arms and measurement column, image spot measurement bench, collimators, Rockwell Hardness Tester, Salt Spray Tester, Optical Profile Projectors, Roughness Testers, Gauges, and interferometers), Spectroscopy, along with extensive environmental qualification systems:
- Environmental chambers
- Cryogenic chamber
- Outgassing systems
All of this equipment is used to guarantee system quality and design life, and ensure the success of our customers’ projects.
In addition, our automation is the creation and application of technologies to produce and deliver goods and services with minimal human intervention. The implementation of automation technologies, techniques, and processes improve the efficiency, reliability, and/or speed of many tasks that were previously performed by humans Extrusion is forcing materials from die-set to create a uniform shape then machined.
To meet customer demands, Micromatics has developed a tremendous breadth of expertise, complex technologies and processes for multiple industries. Our hi-speed production lines and lean manufacturing can help customers move products to market faster while lowering costs. From the Bill of Material (BOM) and drawings, we can offer complete solutions including mechanical assembly, PCBA, software installation supplied in their own packaging material.
Processes include :
• Module Assembly
• Functional Test
• Box Build
• Component Mounting (PCBA, FPCA, COB, COF, FOG, FOB)
• Inspection & Test
IC PACKAGING / SUB ASSEMBLY
Some of Micromatics key technologies are embedded in our hi-precision machines and testing equipment, where accuracy can reach a few microns. As technology is advancing more rapidly and consumers are demanding more customization, Micromatics puts efforts on new technologies that will further advance the value of packaging and lead to total solutions for its customers.
Processes include :
• Die Attach
• Wire Bonding
• Trim & From
• Laser Marking
• Test & Packing
Micromatics has vast experience of Wafer handling technologies, which consist of back grinding, polishing, dicing, and inspection. After inspection, we put the individual die in a gel-pack, to safely transport and handle valuable devices to the customer or IC packaging’s production lines.
Processes include :
• Back Grinding
• Dicing (Mechanical Dicing, Laser Dicing)
• Inspection & Test
Micromatics can combine a range of parts in an assembly for easy installation in the customer’s product. Micromatics has the materials, machinery and know-how to create assemblies for its customers which save time and money. Before starting production, Micromatics engineers develop the assemblies in CAD to ensure the right specifications.
LARGE PRODUCT RANGE IN STOCK
The wide range of products in stock allows Micromatics to engineer and produce assemblies efficiently. The large stocks in the Micromatics warehouse means that engineers can choose any quantity of products for the assembly production line. Products from different manufacturers can be combined to ensure the best solution.
Micromatics has the facilities to test products after assembling. Besides technical inspections, products can be leak-tested over 20 bar using air or over 40 bar using demineralised water. High precision manometers allow accurate product testing and the detection of pressure drops over longer periods of time.
Complex mechanical assemblies
Integration of hydraulic and pneumatic systems
Electrical and control integration
FAT including functional test
Available segregated areas for integrations or tests performed by customer.
Nearly 60% of our customers utilize our component assembly and product testing services. We assemble multiple components into complex assemblies for aerospace products, diesel fuel systems, hydraulic pumps and motors, power transmissions and hydraulic valves, ensuring consistent and repeatable application performance.
World-class manufacturers trust QCC to perform critical testing operations to free up valuable resources, equipment and space. Let us take over those processes so you can focus on your core manufacturing operations. Whether we design a new test process or take over yours, trust QCC to ensure your products and assemblies perform according to specifications.
Functional hydraulic testing is used for pumps, motors, valves and relief mechanisms. These tests confirm that the product operates within design specifications, in a simulated application environment
32 different test stands
Test performance at speeds up to 8,000 rpm
Operating pressures up to 6,000 psi
Flows to 120 gpm
Broad range of hydraulic fluids
Up to 400 valves, pumps and motors tested daily
Test reliability is built into the process
Ongoing calibration of gages and tooling
Gravimetric and particle patch testing for cleanliness of hydraulic fluid
Static/Inspection Testing tests physical characteristics such as size, force, form, etc.
Hardness testing on steel bar stock and castings
Nital etch testing to check for grind burn on steel parts
Gauss testing to check for magnetism on steel parts
Static vacuum testing
Spring load force testing
Form and location measurements
Life cycle testing is similar to functional testing, but it tests performance over time. Often used for R&D purposes.
Standard life cycle testing: Products tested for durability over time at standard operating speeds and pressures
Accelerated life cycle testing: Extreme conditions to test the limits of performance
Side by Side performance testing: Compare the condition of two alternative products over time
With more than 45 test stands, functional product tests are conducted based on customer parameters. QCC’s focus on value-added manufacturing services has resulted in recognized expertise in delivering high precision, completely finished assemblies and products.
