In-process quality control as a key to success
30 March 2020
As a manufacturer of precision test equipment, Germany-based INGUN produces test probes, as well as both customised and non-customised test fixtures, for use in testing equipment in the electronics industry – which have to meet the highest quality requirements.
Thomas Schrodi, Head of Automation and Product Development at INGUN, explains:
"The electronics industry is highly dynamic – products change at extremely high frequency and, for us, that means a continuous increase in the variety of test probes we design and manufacture. Just a few years back, the phase from approval of drawings to delivery of finished products took about three months. Now, that time has been slashed to around six weeks. To continue accommodating our customers' needs, we have to be flexible and fast, and we must ensure the utmost quality and precision in our production."
