At the Heart of Small Machines
Jabil Precision Mechanics provides the design ingenuity, manufacturing agility and supply chain expertise required to succeed in today’s digital economy. No matter how complex or demanding the project, our Jabil Precision Mechanics team can help you solve it.
Products are shrinking, requiring that components shrink or change altogether to fit within new miniature footprints. Precision Mechanics is a core engineering capability that deals with the design and industrialization of small machines, miniaturized devices, components and products for many different industries and applications. Many products that use precision mechanics components also operate under harsh or rugged conditions, making the quality and integrity of the product paramount. Companies doing precision mechanics work in-house often find it costly and slow because they lack the manpower and expertise to solve design problems efficiently. In order to innovate and meet time-to- market challenges, companies are leveraging Jabil’s precision mechanics experience and expertise across a variety of end markets:
Automotive and Transportation
Precision mechanics is not only used in the electronic innovations designed to push the boundaries of technology. In fact, precision mechanics is often used to improve common items in current and older technologies to make them more efficient and attractive to meet the demands of today’s consumer. This flexibility of the various applications of precision mechanics give companies new capabilities and services that allow them to compete in established markets as well as engage in the development of future markets such as service robots, healthcare robotics, autonomous driving, smart farming, and more. By partnering with Jabil, customers use our manufacturing expertise along with our global network of suppliers to create products and components that increase the quality of their products while minimizing cost.
Precision mechanics is more than just producing smaller components. As a means of production, precision mechanics incorporates a range of technologies that come together to manufacture parts that meet the high demands of consumers and companies alike.
- High precision mechanics – the ability to design and industrialize product with tolerance classed between 0.1 – 0.001mm
- Kinematic systems – moving mechanics where issues like vibration, wear, climate conditions, and noise need to be managed
- Mechatronics – competence where electronics are very deeply integrated into the mechanics
- Miniaturized systems – small, robust handheld or body worn devices typically with complex mechanisms
