Q. SO how are we, as a small company able to make highly competitive products that compete on a world stage?
A. IN short, its because we have invested heavily into the latest in automatic CAD/CAM systems and machines. We can design a part in the morning and have it made and evaluated by the end of the same day, this gives us a huge advantage both in efficiency and cost over many of our competitors.
Q. So what parts do you make in house?
A. We make almost all the parts we use, the main exceptions are Sheet Metal fabrication for the chassis and the actual PCB Board manufacture, we do all the design and layout in house, send out the manufacturing files and get back the bare PCBs which we then populate by CNC Pick and place technology. Additionally some small parts for the tonearms we have made via a specialist UK based supplier.
Q. What machines do you have?
A. We have the following:- CNC Milling machine, CNC Lathe, CNC Turning Centre, CNC Laser cutter, CNC Router, CNC Pick and Place machine, 8 zone hot air reflow machine, and a dual wave soldering machine. These are all integrated with our 3D Design software and PCB design software. Additionally we do screen printing, hand soldering for the more delicate parts and of course full hand assembly .
