Advanced Mechanical Solutions

What does a medical diagnostic machine have in common with a retail kiosk, airport security scanner and a telecom switching terminal?

All require complex assembly, durable metal construction, easy serviceability and attractive design. That’s a very tall order for any manufacturer to fill on its own, especially if cost-effective manufacturing and tight time-to-market goals are also major priorities.

Established in 2010, Jabil's Advanced Mechanical Solutions team offers customer companies vertically integrated capabilities in metal fabrication and machine assemblies, including enclosures, large custom racks, weldments, large-form-factor machining and mechatronic assemblies. Add to that list special expertise in material choices, paints and coatings, as well as Jabil’s proven skills in curbing production costs through design for assembly and design for manufacturing methods.

Among the chief target markets for these services:  Healthcare, telecommunications, semiconductor capital equipment, industrial enclosures and structures for self-service retail.
