If you’ve been researching which electronics design and manufacturing company is the best for your business needs, it’s likely that you’ll have been met with a wall of information about specifications and quality standards that the company adheres to. Particularly if your background is in defence, mining or the industrial industries, you’ll be familiar with International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards and what they mean for your business. IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries – is another certification level to look out for.
So why is it that these acronyms are so important for you to get the right results from your chosen design and manufacturing company?
The most recent version of this ISO, 9001:2015, is an easy way to recognise that quality processes are in place within a business. Created to help companies review their quality management systems, operating to ISO 9001 keeps standards in place within business processes and heightens their efficiency. ISO 9001 also encourages companies to keep improving their systems.
This is a great signifier for choosing the right design and manufacturing company, as it means that you can have total faith that they’re continually striving to bring their customers the best results possible in a well-documented and audited fashion.
IPC is the classing system specifically for PCB electronics manufacturing. Every circuit board printed must be classified to one of three levels: Class 1, Class 2 or Class 3; Class 1 being the cheapest standard for general electronics. If you enlist a design and manufacturing company that operates to Class 3 as relevant, you’ll always be satisfied with the longevity, quality and reliability of your electronics. This is particularly crucial if your industry is that of the medical field or defence, where failsafe electronics are pivotal to daily smooth and secure business runnings.
Thankfully, at Hetech, we readily conform to ISO 9001 and IPC Class 3 and ensure that our standards are always pushed to be their best. If you want to find out more about how our professional electronics design and manufacturing service can help your business, get in touch with our team today.
In response to the significant increase in demand for electronic engineering services from industries such as defence, Queensland-based electronics design and manufacturing company, Hetech, is collaborating with selected local engineering companies to increase its design capacity of up to 20 engineers.
With projects such as the LAND400: Phase 2 landing in Queensland, collaboration between local engineers in the electronics industry is now essential. Collaboration enables projects to be completed effectively, and will also ensure the continuation of large revenue-generating projects and engineering job creation in Queensland and Australia.
Hetech Managing Director, Mark Steiner emphasised, “For Hetech, the electronics industry and the Australian economy to grow, we must work together and increase our capacity for engineering and manufacturing services.”
Frequently exposing Australian SME manufacturers to larger projects will lead to a much more efficient manufacturing process; keeping production costs down, more exporting opportunities and job growth in Australia.
As a firm believer in collaboration, Mark Steiner states that part of Hetech’s expansion plans will include discussions with interstate companies to broaden Hetech’s capabilities even further. In addition, Hetech is committed to continue investing heavily in its internal engineering team, reinforcing development within the company to strengthen specialised skills and overall project management.
