High Speed Assembly
Lower Production Costs and Faster Time-to-Market
Success in optimizing high-speed assembly and other manufacturing processes is only gained through years of dedication and hands-on-experience. Jabil is a leading automation and robotics equipment supplier with the experience and expertise to customize robust, high-volume manufacturing solutions.
High-volume products such as consumer electronics are steadily increasing in functionality and complexity while getting considerably smaller. Many assembly tasks have become very difficult for manual labor or require training that cannot be justified with shrinking margins. At the same time, many existing automated lines are aging, or have not been updated with capabilities that could significantly improve production. Jabil’s expert knowledge of manufacturing solutions, combined with industry-leading technology and innovations in assembly offer businesses increased benefits in quality, safety, security, and more:
- Faster, more reliable production
- 100% inspection criteria adherence
- Reduced human capital risks
- Lower costs and greater margins
- Improve product quality and consistency
- Reduce intellectual property risks
Benefits of High-Speed Assembly
Increased product volume is not the only benefit of high-speed assembly. Designing a high-speed assembly solution also optimizes the manufacturing process for other benefits:
- Reduced downtime
- Less waste produced
- Potential for more work in less space
- Easy scalability
- Improved precision and accuracy in assembly
Jabil recognizes that to reduce product development time and speed time-to-market, a properly validated assembly process is essential, from prospective validation of performance and operational qualifications. We understand the importance of factors such as synchronization, and the use of multi-axis motion controllers, to optimize assembled part quality. Applying a custom, flexible, and collaborative approach, Jabil guides partners through every step of designing, building, and optimizing automated production lines.
