Advanced Automation

Highly functional products require high-precision advanced automation solutions for their alignment and assembly.

Advanced automation solutions are necessary to meet today’s precision alignment, handling and assembly process challenges. High repeatability assembly robots with a minimized footprint and unified control platform have become the norm. Jabil’s precision automation capabilities can provide both the ROI and flexibility you require through collaborative robotic platform integrations.

When it comes to your next-gen product, Designing for Automated Assembly (DFAA) delivers real benefits such as reduced product cost, proper functionality and increased reliability. Besides meeting the need for seemingly impossible sub-micron tolerances, Jabil can help you create advanced precision automations as part of an end-to-end manufacturing solution with high productivity; reduced cycle time; minimized downtime; and future-proof flexibility.

Injection Molding

Highly functional plastic parts require precision, high tolerance complex injection molding to meet the specialized requirements of industries like electronics, automotive, medical devices and optics. Jabil’s precision injection molding team helps customers build better products from ideation to commercialization, beginning with plastic part optimization and validation to mold engineering development and qualification. Together, we can help develop molds anywhere from one cavity to 144 or more cavities. Additionally, our 3D computed tomography (CT) scanning lets us non-destructively visualize, measure and analyze precision parts and assemblies internally and externally. This yields fast, accurate results that save our customers significant time and effort.

Liquid Silicone Rubber Molding

Medical device manufacturers have long injection-molded liquid silicone rubber (LSR) because it is chemically inert, resists bacteria and is easy to sterilize. Jabil's precision injection mold tooling and prototyping expertise enables cost-effective molds optimized for high-volume precision LSR parts. Bio-compatible, comfortable and waterproof qualities make LSR a key component of the next generation of wearable e-textiles and smart fitness trackers.

Precision Mechanics

Products are shrinking and often must perform under harsh conditions, requiring efficient, quality components that fit within new miniature footprints. Precision mechanics brings components, mechatronic and robotic systems and miniaturized devices to life for applications across industries like industrial, consumer electronics, automotive and transportation and healthcare. But precision mechanics is more than just producing smaller components. As a means of production, precision mechanics incorporates four core engineering technologies to help devices and products work smoothly over time: high-precision mechanics, kinematic systems, mechatronics and miniaturized systems.
