World Class Manufacturing
GAIA Converter DC/DC modules are manufactured within a fully automated integrated assembly line. From the very beginning with pick and place SMD operation to the final automated potting and test operation there are no manual operations and cycle interrupts which guarantees a full repeatability and control. This integrated assembly lines include state of the art equipment :
- Pick and place SMD Line
- Infra red reflow oven
- Automatic potting
- Automatic test equipment
GAIA Converter has optimized the production of all of its standard DC/DC converter allowing all references to be manufactured with only one loader. This facilitates the manufacturing of small batches of one reference and large batches of another one without the need to change loader.
The assembly line is completed by screening equipments to address specific reliability concerns. Equipments include :
- Climatic chambers
- Thermal chocks chambers
- Vibration cycling equipment...
Statistical Quality Control
Statistical controls complement this integrated assembly line to ensure that the product manufactured is of the highest quality. They include:
- In Line Statistical Process Control (SPC)
- Statistical Product Monitoring (SPM)
- Average Outgoing Quality Data (AOQ)
Parameters such as solder-paste thickness, reflow oven temperature, component placement, cleanliness, product performance are statistically analyzed and charted to keep the assembly lines under constant control.
