Kistler supports the 3C electronics industries with measurement technology in product development and manufacturing.

3C electronics industries

Improve manufacturing and product development with measurement technology

The 3C, electrical and electronics industries face growing requirements in the areas of quality assurance, material testing, error detection in manufacturing, increasing efficiency and quality improvement. Simultaneously, costs need to be optimized and further reduced. Here, the computer, communications and consumer electronics industry (3C) is under significant pressure, due to its technical innovations, short product life cycles, very brief ramp-up times for new production lines, and yet, maximum quality requirements. Mass production, extensive product variety, intense competition, tight delivery times: the challenges in this industry sector are enormous.

In manufacturing and the development of production processes, force, pressure, acceleration and torque each play a decisive role. Deviations from defined parameters can result in damage and faulty products. Given the high speed of production, monitoring systems are needed that can meet the dynamic requirements of today's production equipment. The combination of highly sensitive sensor technology and process monitoring systems is the key to reliable acquisition, visualization and evaluation of measurement data. This provides valuable information about the quality of manufactured components – and also ensures that faulty parts are detected and/or sorted out at an early stage.

We support you from the product development phase (e.g. by fast, data-based validation of manufacturing processes) up to the product testing phase. Our solutions can monitor complex production processes such as the injection molding of components for smartphones and tablets or the assembly processes for a vast range of products (smartphone displays are just one example). Our systems can also perform high-precision product testing, including tactile behavior testing on control elements, spring testing, vision inspection and more.

As experienced partner for the 3C electronics industries, we support you along the entire production chain, from development and production through to assembly and testing of components and end products.

Kistler – your partner for maximum quality and productivity along the entire production chain in the 3C electronics industries

We are here to assist and support you with the following: development, production, assembly and testing of components and end products (example: smartphones).

We support you with our process monitoring systems

To ensure premium quality in a 3C premium product, every step along the entire production chain must be monitored – from development to component manufacturing all the way to assembly and product testing.

Kistler provides process monitoring solutions for electrical and electronic component manufacturers.

Complex assembly processes for electronic displays

In electronic display production assembly processes are critical to connect sensitive electronics. Piezo force sensor monitoring solutions ensure accurate process evaluation. This means that faulty parts or assemblies can be identified at an early stage and consequential costs can be reduced.

Examples of measuring chains featuring dynamic force measurement

In this constellation, signal evaluation is usually handled by the PLC or an IPC.

The main advantage of this measurement chain: Each production step can be checked and visualized.
