As with advanced assembly techniques, Jabil engineers use precision mechanics to integrate mechanical components of a variety of materials into tight spaces without compromising performance. Product applications from consumer electronics to aerospace components increasingly require this miniaturization — volumetric efficiency is a key competitive benefit.
These applications often require exacting mechanical precision. For example, an insulin pump is a medical mechatronic that can deliver .0001 ml increments of medicine using linear actuators with tolerances up to 0.001 mm. It can take years to pass devices like this through meticulous regulatory testing, ensuring absolute safety and reliability.
Yet at the same time, an insulin pump is a high-volume consumer device. It’s often placed next to the skin, under a bra, with a reservoir that lasts days. It must be small, comfortable, environmentally durable, not to mention attractive with a very user-friendly design and interface.
Jabil is uniquely able to bring together the design skills, materials and compliance expertise, and manufacturing experience to build these kinds of components — small, light, thin, and flexible, with exacting mechanical and electronic specifications. We quickly get you to market. And our digital supply chain experience — with a global footprint — ensures the delivery of reliable product on-time and at the lowest landed cost.
