Assembly & Testing

We Put It All Together

Assembly, Testing, Finishing and Inspection: Complete, Precise and Customized

Hi-Tech has amassed a complete suite of assembly and finishing capabilities to supply you with components and assemblies that save time and money. Our quality focus and expertise ensure that each component is assembled and finished to your precise specifications – even to the tightest tolerances. We employ our MRP system to manage flow down of all your requirements, for a transparent workflow.

Assemblies

Assembly at Hi-Tech can include any combination of thermoplastic, composite and metal components. We can add purchased components to the items we manufacture or create assemblies solely from purchased parts.

Our in-line assembly is a high-speed, efficient operation. It can add multiple components to an assembly right on the production line. So pieces move directly from molding to assembly without multiple steps.

We are experts at using adhesives and primer for thermoplastic to thermoplastic bonds, thermoplastic to metal bonds and thermoplastic to foam bonds. We perform oven cures in temperature-controlled ovens to reduce lead times. We also anneal parts in ovens to change molded component geometry and ensure tighter tolerance control. We have specialized ovens for Torlon and specialized blasting for paint and adhesive surface preparation.

Inspection and Testing

Quality starts before the work begins, so we perform incoming inspection on sourced components. Other inspection and testing operations include:

  • Proprietary qualified pressure and leak testing using both Air and Gas assist
  • Fluorescent Penetrant Inspection to ensure component integrity
  • Managing independent lab testing for material certification.
  • Measuring electrical resistance to ensure coating integrity and verify grounding assembly is static dissipative.

Finding Quality Suppliers

Hi-Tech has the contacts and experience to source components. We maintain an approved and audited supplier list. Our internal purchasing group reevaluates sourced components annually to manage cost and check for alternatives.
