Build To Print

Build to print machine building projects often require additional support services to ensure success.

Tech Group’s experienced team of engineers, project and account managers, sourcing and technical staff continuously review customer designs and documentation.

We’re looking for:

  • Completeness¬†
  • Part obsolescence issues
  • Design for manufacturability and
  • Cost-effectiveness.

A few reasons why you should contact us

  • New development project in mind you have no resources for
  • You’ve created a prototype(s) in-house and are looking for a partner to scale up your business
  • Not satisfied with the flexibility, quality of communication with your existing partner?
  • Looking for possibilities to lower costs for your project
  • Tired of working with multiple partners with shared responsibilities and finger-pointing.
Process

We cover the entire process - from design and engineering, all the way to assembly and after-services

Project Management

A customer-centric approach, open communication, visibility and accountability at all levels within the process and organisation provides the basis of successful long-term customer partnerships.

While working with customers from several industries we have gained knowledge and experience. Our project managers with engineering backgrounds are the single point of contact throughout the project overseeing delivery, quality and cost.

As a machine building contract manufacturer, we understand the importance of intellectual property rights and non-disclosures. All IP will remain as the property of our customers with Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) covering all our customer relationships.

Also, electronic document control, physical barrier constraints, limited access areas and proprietary agreements ensure the protection of customers’ intellectual property.

Design & Engineering

Our mechanical engineering team has a diverse range of experience and expertise. All of our qualified and experienced engineers use the latest version of the SolidWorks CAD software.

Our engineering process is guided by several standards and directives, including the Machinery Safety Directive with ergonomic design principles. We always strive to take into account design for manufacturing (DFM), design for assembly (DFA), and the cost and quality of the product.

Electrical equipment and systems are a vital component of product development in many industries. A successful electrical system for a demanding destination is made with industry knowledge, exceptional expertise and skilled design work.

Tech Group’s design engineers create electrical and control system diagrams, select components and programme the logic for numerous sectors and all sorts of application, depending on the customer’s requirements.

Typically, automation design is part of a larger entity in which other design expertise is included.

Our automation design expertise includes:

  • Industrial hardware and software design
  • Wide range of PLC families from Siemens, Beckhoff, Omron, Allen-Bradley and Mitsubishi

All common programming languages in the fields of PLC and user interface programming are used. We utilise a wide range of industrial robot programming, including KUKA and ABB.

Supply Chain Management

Tech Group’s aggressive pursuit of high-quality, low-cost suppliers, locally and globally, together with continuous monitoring and improvement of the supplier base has resulted in a diverse and robust supply chain that is beneficial for all our customers.

The suppliers we use for a particular project is dependent by delivery requirements (quality, volume, lead times) of our customer.

Manufacturing & Assembly

Throughout our organisation, and specifically on the manufacturing floor, we employ lean manufacturing practices to create value by reducing waste.

Where possible, and project dependent, we establish lean work cells. Our manufacturing & assembly capabilities include:

  • Build-to-print manufacturing
  • Low and medium volume production
  • Final product and sub-assembly manufacturing
  • Electrical control cabinet manufacturing & assembly
  • Custom mechanics manufacturing & assembly
  • Cable harness manufacturing & assembly
  • Component sourcing
  • Metal fabrication and mechanical assembly

Testing

Testing ensures that the end product is suitable for its intended use, and the end-user receives a high-quality and reliable machine.

Tech Group’s effective testing services guarantee a high-quality product that functions reliably. One of Tech Group’s in-house services is Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT).

All manufactured systems undergo a rigorous testing phase per the system’s specifications, guaranteeing that all components work together.

Optimising all programmes for proper performance and cycle times. Dry-testing and debugging are part of Tech Group’s standard procedures and performed before delivery and installation.

Installation

Our professional technicians have the competence and know-how to install the manufactured machinery fast, efficiently and safely.

Depending on the project, some electrification can be completed on-site and then commissioned.

Lifecycle Services

Depending on your needs, we are eager to help you as much as possible.

We’ve had many different lifecycle services agreements over the years with our customers, including a mix of various aspects:

  • Spare part manufacturing and delivery
  • Rebuild & upgrades
  • Design modifications
  • Relocation of the machines
  • Maintenance and service agreements
  • Training
