At the Heart of Small Machines
Jabil Precision Mechanics
Products are shrinking, requiring that components shrink or change altogether to fit within new miniature footprints. 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 such as consumer electronics, automotive and transportation, healthcare and industrial.
A Proactive Solutions Partner
Jabil 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. By coupling rapid prototyping and expertise in designing in order to move mechanics with fine tolerances, companies can deliver innovative products with an accelerated time-to-market. 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. In addition, our digital supply chain solutions and global footprint ensure the delivery of reliable products on-time and at the lowest landed cost.
With over 30 years of experience, Jabil Precision Mechanics expertise and solutions empower the world’s leading global brands and new disruptive players to:
- Increase innovation using industrial design expertise and precision mechanics know-how to optimize products
- Lower costs with design and development in close proximity to volume manufacturing and test facilities
- Reduce handoffs during product realization lifecycles
- Decrease waste through designs optimized for manufacture
- Accelerate time-to-market with rapid prototyping using 3D printing for fast design iterations and adjustments
The Jabil Precision Mechanics team can help bridge the gap between emerging market trends and the challenge of getting to market first with the highest quality product, especially as applications today 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. This type of device can take years to get approval as it goes through meticulous regulatory testing – one of many challenges Jabil has helped solve for healthcare customers.
