Let’s take a look at what goes into the electro-mechanical assembly and what a professional grade company like HELTRONICS can do to assist in the electro-mechanical assembly process.

The Benefits of Electro-Mechanical Assembly

While there are other options in the modern market, there are many benefits that come directly from using electro-mechanical assembly to regulate and construct the power supply of most devices. The human approach involving skilled technicians with a keen eye for detail means that each piece is customized and made directly for the job at hand, suiting the client’s needs perfectly.

Electro-mechanical assemblies are found in tons of everyday items that a person experiences in their daily life and in many specialized places that one would not expect. For starters, many computers have electro-mechanical assembly components. Speed sensors for subways and other public transport vehicles also use electro-mechanical assemblies due to their overall reliability and ease of repair. Even the military uses electro-mechanical aspects in weaponry, as it is a quick fix, ready to use application with a low failure rate, which is necessary for such a situation.

Electro-Mechanical Assembly Versus Integrated Circuits

For years, the electro-mechanical assembly method was essentially the only way to make electronic devices. It was effective and did a fantastic job but the resulting products were costly due to the amount of time, effort, labor, and knowledge that went into putting together the individual pieces by hand, including individual wires and minute components. Over time, though, the technologies surrounding the formation of electronic devices evolved, resulting in the creation of integrated circuits, a less labor-intensive system that drastically lowered the cost and manufacturing time of electronic devices. This, in turn, resulted in a dramatic dip in popularity of electro-mechanical assemblies.

Over time, though, there has been a resurgence in interest in electro-mechanical assembly methods. This is due to the limitations that integrated circuits place on a given assembly. For starters, integrated circuits can only handle so much current, making them less than ideal for larger projects. Additionally, low noise and high voltage options are not easily obtained or maintained. It is also more difficult to customize an integrated circuit device since the parts are not easily fabricated. This means larger jobs can be tricky or outright unfeasible depending on the scope of the task at hand.

About Control Panels

Electro-mechanical control panels are designed to control pieces of equipment on a job site or other venue. These pieces of equipment can range from small drones to more intrusive pieces like transit vehicles and includes devices that allow operators to control equipment remotely. Most companies rely on an electro-mechanical control panel in one way or another and it is one of the widest spread pieces of machinery available today. Due to this, almost every industry can benefit from upgrades or new pieces, leading to the demand for control panels being one of the largest.

What is An Electro-Mechanical Assembly?

In a nutshell, electro-mechanical assemblies are used to put together electric and mechanical components that are necessary to complete a task. Every electro-mechanical assembly is a delicate task that requires careful engineering, planning, and installation to work properly. All of the pieces must work in tandem to generate the desired effect, be it something like turning on a light or triggering a series of different operations. Common electro-mechanical assemblies include:

  • Controller Apparatus
  • Complete Box Builds
  • Power Supplies
  • Subassemblies
  • Final Assemblies
  • Faceplate Assemblies
  • Electromedical Diagnostic Apparatus
  • Electrotherapeutic Apparatus
  • And much more

Needless to say, these devices provide vital functions for many basic and complex electronic devices. That being said, many operations once moderated by an electro-mechanical assembly can now be completed through integrated electronic circuits instead, simplifying the process further. Still, many people do prefer electro-mechanical assemblies due to repair and upgrade options.

Typically, electro-mechanical assemblies are used to regulate the power distribution of AC and DC currents, function as general control systems, and act within certain computer interfaces. All of these applications are viable, great ways to utilize this method of electric regulation.

Due to the complexity of these designs and the overall need for the ability to fine-tune each wire and detail, electro-mechanical assemblies are usually done entirely by hand, requiring a special level of skill and knowledge to successfully be completed. These technicians are fully trained in mitigating issues and solving problems themselves, drastically reducing the turnaround time for each given project. With a wide range of skills including soldering, wire organization, and other basic facets, these technicians are a vital part of the HELTRONICS team and play a massive role in ensuring every single electro-mechanical assembly project is completed to the highest possible tier of quality.
