Manufacturing Departments

The production area has a number of distinct areas, specialising in different manufacturing processes.

PCB Manufacture

Mainly for through-hole pcb assembly & some Surface-Mount based circuits.

Wave Soldering

For volume production, most PCBs are populated, cropped & soldered using our cropping & wave-soldering machines.

Mechanical Workshop

Various types of fabrication & engineering equipment are used to machine metal or plastic parts & build mechanical assemblies as part of complete electrical controllers.

Wire-cutting & stripping

Cables and wires are normally prepared using our wire-cutting and stripping equipment, maintaining quality and improving efficiencies.

Wiring

Ranging from internal wiring of control products to full-scale panel wiring projects

Polyurethane Potting

To improve moisture protection & heat transfer characteristics, many of United Automations products are sealed with polyurethane resin.

PIC Programming

Many of our products are designed around dedicated software and therefore PIC processors need to be programmed in-house, in our ESH area.

3-Phase & 1-Phase Testing

All manufactured products require full-testing and therefore we have various areas & test equipment to carry out both 3-phase & single-phase testing.
