With the rise of IoT solutions and electronics becoming more and more important in the industry, the challenges related to the production of electronic equipment have now multiplied. Advanced sectors such as the avionics, automotive and home automation sectors need to meet an increasing number of requirements. So how can we minimise the risk of failure and make products more secure?
An in-depth look at the industrial processes implemented to meet customer quality requirements.
With the introduction of increasingly complex technologies, the reliability of electronic systems has become even more crucial. To meet these challenges, high-resolution control procedures, previously only available for microelectronics and component manufacturing, are now more widely deployed. For example, this is the case with 3D laminography.
In an article on 3D laminography, Polish Engineering Manager Rafal Lebek said:
The use of 3D laminography combined with X-rays is one of the high-performance fault detection processes that is now also applied to circuit boards.
Combating PPM (“parts per million”), i.e. the number of defective parts per million parts produced per year, represents a daily challenge. To achieve zero defects, different methods for problem solving and reducing process variability are used.
A successful quality approach goes hand in hand with an optimal operational excellence strategy. This culture of performance involves the development of innovative reliability processes to always be ready to meet new industrial challenges.
Benjamin Gauchenot, Vice-President of Operations & Quality of Electronics Activity of LACROIX, goes over this in episode 6 of the Carte Blanche podcast “The passion for operational excellence”.
Obtaining international standard certifications such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001, EN/AS/JISQ 9100, or IATF 16949 for the automotive sector provide customers with essential guarantees.
Each new requirement of our customers drives us to excel and constantly innovate. Quality needs to be everyone’s business, which is why we train all our employees to adopt this philosophy.
Quality service is cross-functional and brings together the expertise needed to comply with industrial processes. It focuses on method and rigour, as shown in this article on quality service in Poland.
All production sites of the Electronics Activity use all of their know-how to fulfil its mission. Striving for operational excellence is essential to meet customer requirements and rise to their challenges.
