Axsera works actively with electronics manufacturers to develop creative solutions for them when they are faced with production challenges. The following describes a customized maintenance solution that was borne out of a need to solve a real-world transportation safety issue.
A local transit authority was in a bind as their video recorders began to cease operating within 2 years of installation. It was soon determined that the internal electronics of these units were being affected due to exposure to the elements. In particular, the logic boards within the enclosures were corroding from condensation and exposure to abrasives used for winter road conditions. There was no clear and immediate resolution, as the option of going back to the original manufacturer would be difficult due to warranty considerations and cost issues.
A Creative Solution
Axsera—through its association with several well-established electronics manufacturers—was given the opportunity to test and implement a novel solution that turned out to be both effective and cost-efficient. After testing many coating solutions and non-invasive application techniques, a precise, step-by-step procedure was finalized and documented for proof of concept.
The result was worth the effort: With a success rate of over 80%, the specialized coating of the boards was put into production at Axsera’s facilities in a custom, enclosed and well-ventilated lab.
Axsera continues to work alongside electronics manufacturers to find creative solutions. In most cases, custom work with production-level efficiency is not what these manufacturers are equipped for. They’re rarely able to undertake such customized repair and maintenance operations—either due to their business models, product warranties, profit margins, or demands of their supply chains.
Axsera is also equally adept at handling overflow production work for electronics manufacturers looking to outsource excess capacity. For the complete story, download our Axsera Case Study.
