In house engineering
USR’s in-house engineering services are run by experts in their respective products, proactively managing technical risks and meeting the challenge of increased product yields without sacrificing quality. By methodically reviewing all customer documentation and employing specialists with in-depth knowledge of the project, we ensure the product can be manufactured in the most efficient and cost effective method.
Our engineering services are initiated at 3 major levels:
Component Engineers who are responsible for examining the entire list of components issued by the customer, and who stay abreast of all the developments in the component market, especially when related to re-engineering or intricate regulatory requirements.
A Process Engineer is in charge of certifying that production is done according to confirmed processes and methods in order to maximize effectiveness and quality of the entire line.
A Product Engineer oversees the constant maintenance of the customer’s product portfolio to validate complete correspondence between technical specifications and actual production patterns in the organization. We utilize computerized systems to guarantee true “copy exact” specifications in order to deliver fast and reliable results.
The hardware test engineering department at USR offers the following services:
DFT (Design for Testability) – analysis and consultancy from initial development of an electronic card, all the way to the development of test devices calibrated to the highest standards.
CAD/CAM Professional – Specially designed software for DFT tests, especially ICT and Flying Probe.
Turn Key Projects – comprehensive projects which include developing ICT programs and constructing adaptors for ICT Teradyne Z18XX tests.
Developing JTAG test programs – used for Goepel and Corelis systems.
Developing test programs for Flying Probe SPEA 4040.
It is possible to order test engineering services for outside customers.
When launching a new product in today’s aggressive market, a company needs every advantage it can get in order to bring the product to market on time and stay ahead of the competition with market share and higher sales and profits.
The only way to achieve these goals without compromising product quality is to integrate critical manufacturing and logistics elements in the design and engineering stages. Assuring material availability also guarantees a smooth conversion from design to manufacturing and assembly. This is where USR’s proficiency comes in, for your complete benefit.
New Product Introduction
Our NPI division is the best partner for getting any new product to market in the best fashion possible. Instead of waiting for the working prototypes in order to begin adaptation to mass production, our NPI experts join the design process at a very early stage and help to introduce critical manufacturing and logistics elements for overall efficiency. Working alongside the design engineers, the NPI team is tasked with finding creative solutions to enhance the workflow, and to find methods to accommodate manufacturing without limiting or impairing the designers’ flexibility.
We provide you with flexible solutions that:
Enable you to meet aggressive new product introduction timelines.
Enable strategic use of available Material and resources.
Speed your overall time-to-market
Respond to new market needs by means of technology and availability.
Produce full After Assembly report.
We apply NPI processes to help you improve product manufacturability and speed your transition to volume production. This improves both time-to-market and time-to-profit.
Methodology in NPI
By working according to proven methodologies and strategic NPI processes, we can help to accelerate your profits.
Our design engineers can:
Provide optimized and reliable design solutions that consider all stages of a product’s lifecycle.
Deliver design solutions that improve product manufacturability through design for manufacturing (DFm).
Improve prototypes through design for test (DFt).
Reduce bill of materials costs through design for sourcing (DFs).
We are committed to providing you with a total solution and best services. We achieve this by leveraging the high capabilities of our supply chain, and through our total devotion to our customers.
Concurrent to our NPI approach, our challenge is to attain logistic readiness throughout the design process. This challenge is enhanced by frequent changes and the wish to avoid excessive unwanted components and stock.
Employing our vast knowledge and experience in the field, we take these risks into consideration and work to minimize them as much as possible, for the benefit of all sides involved. The close coordination between design engineers and NPI engineers promises risk management that leads to positive actions and to more effective processes.
Mechanical Engineering Design
One of the main goals set by the company was to empower the mechanical design and development department, which is located in Tel Aviv, in terms of technical support. The involvement of the design teams in emerging technologies, as well as ongoing communication with local start-ups, positions USR at the forefront of the hi-tech industry.
The mechanical engineering design department serves numerous customers for medical products, communications and applications for industrial. The department conducts mechanical developments in a wide range of technologies, from simple communication appliances to ultra-sophisticated optical devices for industrial use in rough terrain. Needless to be said, the department has the ability to take any product from technical specifications all the way to the final high-quality product.
Advanced technology development and global reach allows USR to be responsive to customers’ product design needs, building in solutions that lower costs throughout the product’s life cycle. Our design capabilities range from subsystem and full turn-key product designs to cost reductions for existing designs.
USR perform as a seamless extension of our customers internal design capabilities. Getting involved early in the product development process and working closely with their own engineers, we work aggressively to exceed customers goals and time-to-market expectations.
