INDIANAPOLIS -- May 12, 2009 -- Deciding who to trust with complex electrical components can be tough. It is even more critical when your product affects the health and safety of others.
Aircom Manufacturing and its subsidiary, Medivative Technologies, offer extensive expertise in electromechanical engineering. Long known as a leader in the contract manufacturing industry, Aircom also has developed a proficiency in electronics over the years.
"Our talented staff includes several electrical engineers and has the electromechanical competency to serve clients in every stage of the development process. We can take an existing design and implement it, or we can improve it. We can even take something that is just a concept and develop it," said David Massey, Operations Manager for Medivative Technologies, an ISO 13485 certified facility.
Aircom's electronic capabilities include wire harnessing, box build solutions, custom chip assembly, firmware development, validation, and test stand development using LabVIEW.
"We use internal expertise whenever possible as a way to lower cost for our customers. We can do everything from switches and wires to complex, microprocessor-based electronic assemblies," said Director of Product Development John Hengesbach, who has 35+ years experience in all aspects of the electronics industry.
Aircom engineers regularly launch ideas from conception to production. The company's unique approach to test stand development ensures accurate performance of fast electromechanical operations.
"If you develop a product from scratch, you must test it to know if it's going to work. Instead of waiting until the product is finished, we develop the product and the test stand in parallel," said Project Manager Jeff Schwegman. "Testing for multiple parameters along the way ensures quality as the product is being developed, and ultimately results in getting that product to market more quickly."
Because Aircom and Medivative serve the biomedical and foodservice industries, quality and safety are paramount.
"It has got to be right," Schwegman says. "Developing the test stand in partnership with the product ensures reliability, as well as provides a record of the device's history and documentation of proper product function."
