Engineering Studies for Hazmat Equipment Test-Intensive Assembly Lines

Author : J GALE

09 March 2011

Hazmat equipment manufacturers with stringent requirements for functional performance tests of all products prior to market release who are seeking more realistic return-on-investment projections for expansion of global manufacturing facilities, can now get no-cost detailed engineering reports projecting ways to reduce costs while maintaining highest quality standards from InterTech Development Company’s Testing Applications Laboratory.

These application-specific engineering reports will help hazardous materials engineers better gauge real costs of integrating multiple facilities worldwide while still maintaining ISO 9001, ISO 12485:2003 and other quality standards.

Jacques Hoffmann, President of InterTech Development Company, explains that InterTech is making this service available to assist the great numbers of manufacturers that have aggressively expanded their globally-distributed manufacturing mistakenly thinking lower labor costs will directly correlate with higher profit margins. Hoffmann says, “In recent years InterTech has been called in to re-engineer test-intensive assembly lines throughout the world because of the high failure rates in functional performance of reject products from assembly lines.

Quite often, plants had been built in areas where lower labor costs were assumed to translate into significantly higher profit margins but the real costs of designing systems that can safeguard product quality in regions with varying infrastructures, workforce skill levels, and ability to design test methods that deliver consistent Gauge R&R despite these variations are underestimated. We see this across the globe where lower paid labor is employed—from India, to China, to Latin America, and even in less industrial areas within developed nations.”
