We not only produce components for medical technology, vacuum technology, and the semiconductor industry, but also offer clean-room assembly. Our ISO-8 clean-room assembly area plus a workplace with a flowbox for ISO clean room class 5 (US. Fed. Stand. class 100) provide the necessary conditions. At 6 workplaces with automatic storage systems, our employees produce the assemblies in high efficiency according to the one-piece-flow principle. Individual components are combined into top-quality assemblies.
Next up is final inspection of the finished assemblies. The surfaces are visually examined for flaws by our highly trained inspectors, then we use state-of-the-art technology to fully check functioning and tightness. All the test reports are automatically logged and filed.
Our assembly control system
Just like all work instructions at ERVO, assembly instructions are generated in our CAQ program Babtec and transferred via an interface to our assembly control system xBrain. All assembly processes are carried out exclusively under the assembly control system in combination with our Atlas Copco screw feeding system. Every manual work step is monitored, logged, and can be traced. The Atlas Copco screw feeding system ensures that every screw connection is complete and fastened with the specified torque. If a screw connection is missing or faulty, the employee cannot perform the next work step until the fault is rectified. This guarantees absolute reliability for the top quality requirements of assemblies from the ERVO clean-room assembly shop.
The double-sided Megamat storage system offers on the one hand access for material feeding and on the other hand access for material removal. Here, every assembly is mounted individually from start to finish. Six Megamat Megalifts FSE operate simultaneously in the ERVO clean-room assembly shop. They ensure a high production capacity and optimal backup.
Our xBrain assembly control system seamlessly controls and monitors all the work steps. Each process is defined in detail on the screen for the assembly employees. Every screw must be tightened with exactly the correct torque before release for the next assembly step. The Atlas Copco screw feeding system automatically checks the screw connections. In the case of work steps without screw connections, the employee manually confirms successful completion of the step. QR codes ensure that only the correct articles are fed into the assembly process.
After completion of the assembly process, a record (batch number, order, employee, time and tightening torques) is generated and filed. At an inspection workplace, every assembly (identified by QR codes) is checked for functioning and tightness. All the results from all assemblies produced are archived.
