ASSEMBLY & SUB ASSEMBLY
Fero’s production-based systems and staff are available for a multitude of assembly and sub assembly projects. We provide contract assembly services to a number of customers. From a sub assembly perspective we provide custom cable assemblies including connections to plugs, pcb’s and other items.
We work with manufacturers to provide integrated solutions or products – supplying wire and components, integrated PCBs, total assembly and electrical testing.
We continue to grow in providing full assembly services to clients, taking individual elements and assembling them all into a finished product ready for sale. We draw on our manufacturing, product sourcing, design and automation expertise to minimise costs and drive supply efficiency.
CABLE ASSEMBLY & PRODUCTION
Fero has developed long-standing trade relationships with a number of cable manufacturers in New Zealand and off shore. We’re able to provide our customers with custom cable solutions, integrating electrical cables with plugs, pcb’s and other elements to increase manufacturing efficiencies.
Fero manufactures and imports powerleads, wire harnesses, wire sets and cable assemblies. Our engineers can assist with design and work closely with customers to provide innovative manufacturing solutions. We test and assemble to the highest standards, understanding that quality and consistency are vital to our customers’ success.
Fero’s Moldman 4000 low-pressure injection molding machine uses Henkel’s Macromelt® materials to provide gentle over molding and encapsulation for delicate electronic components.
The innovative, modified, thermoplastic, polyamide, hot melts are made especially for low-pressure molding and are a cost effective alternative to epoxy potting.
- Designed for prototyping and production runs – it’s output is scalable from just a few hundred to tens of thousands.
- Typically one or two cavities (depending on part size)
- Fully independent adjustable process control
- Precisely metered shot sizes
- Accurately control flow rates
- Exact pressure control
- Patented permanent nozzle engagement
This is a key area of Fero’s future, because we believe we have the skills, labour, and machinery to develop ideas into finished manufactured products.
We understand the need to find a partner that’s big enough to deliver yet small enough to care. We’ll work in partnership with you, scaling and developing our solution as your needs change and grow and your product develops.
We want to partner with like-mined businesses that want to see NZ manufacturing succeed on the world stage. And for the right business, we’ll throw all we have at making your idea a success!
