The manufacturing process includes significant use of robotics; sub-sonic sound bonding and product inspection that includes 5 high cameras check that will check the DIS boards for proper placement. Class 100,000 and 10,000 clean rooms allow SMP Orlando to manufacture all phases of thick film hybrid electronics.
At the Orlando facility every aspect of manufacturing is totally controlled, from selection of raw material to testing, inspection through packaging of finished product. Field failure analysis has led to engineering innovations as copper slug technology and double wire bonding (instead of welding). This facility employs extensive laboratory and real world testing. Before a part is ever considered for manufacturing, the prototype part is installed in a vehicle and driven for 10,000 miles and then subjected to extreme temperatures ranging from -40ºC to 125ºC for up to one month. This process is repeated up to 5 times before a design goes into production. All prototype data is sent back to the engineers for final design so that manufacturing can begin.
At this SMP electronics facility, our highly automated and flexible production lines and advanced processes can produce over 110 different cataloged modules, significant custom designed production and up to three-quarters of a million modules annually.
Throughout our Orlando facility, a strong effort is made to manufacture in an environmentally friendly method. We make every attempt to recycle all reusable materials so they may find a new life elsewhere. Standard Motor Products, Inc. understands the need to minimize our impact on the environment and reduce waste for future generations.
