Our modern automated production facilities are designed to increase productivity, reduce cost, and enable a fast turnaround. Because of our in-house fabrication capabilities, standard products can often be delivered within 2 weeks as can custom designed products once they have been approved. All of our products are manufactured in the USA.
In addition, our comprehensive manufacturing capabilities include rapid in-house PCB fabrication for short runs of first article custom designs. Our surface-mount and thru hole automated soldering capabilities enable us to produce highly reliable, cost effective products. We can also provide conforming coating for high humidity or condensation prone applications and encapsulation or potting for high shock and vibration applications. Our products utilize either plastic or metal housings to provide both light weight or ruggedized products suitable for any environment.
At AAC, we also design and build our own magnetics. We have both bobbin and toroid winding capabilities and know how.
AAC products are subjected to sub-assembly testing throughout the manufacturing process to assure highest reliability. Every product we sell is power and temperature cycled as well as subjected to vibration tests. Additional application oriented testing for military, commercial air and other markets is also available. Each unit we make is manufactured to ISO 9001 and AS9100 Rev B, and with AS9100 Rev C accreditation scheduled with SAI Global for December 2001.
Our product manufacturing follows the following vertically integrated process:
1. Incoming part inspection
2. Pre-Production Validation
3. PCB Assembly
• Surface Mount Automation with Programmable Solder Reflow Oven or
• Thru Hole, Large Component Assembly
4. Magnetic Device Manufacturing
5. In-process Electrical Test
6. Encapsulation or Conformal Coating
7. Mechanical Assembly
8. Environmental/EMI/Vibration/Electrical Test of Completed Part
Our manufacturing process is fully integrated into corporate operations through an advanced ERP system, in order to provide reliability of delivery and overall quality.
