When Mass Manufacturing in China, DFM should not be not an afterthought.

At Titoma Design For China Manufacturing (DFM China) is an integrated vision for product development excellence. For us Design For China Manufacturing drives our design process right from the start, beginning with the electronic product architecture. We involve a qualified roster of Chinese factories very early on to make sure our design fits well with their equipment and capabilities. We use their input on final assembly and injection molds and all the custom electronic parts such as PCB’s, batteries, LCD’s and cable trees. This helps to minimize hick-ups in the New Product Introduction (NPI) process. As a result we excel in speed and reliability. We like to say we take a product from 1 unit that works to 10,000 which don’t fail.

 

Assembly workers are retrained for every production run

Quite a few of our customers need only a couple of batches manufactured per year, and since high turnover is a given in China we retrain the assembly workers for each production run. On top of this we carefully integrate sustaining engineering activities, updating the electronic design when new key components become available, adding extra features or ensuring the customization of a batch with special requirements. We make sure our clients stay well informed throughout the design and manufacturing process, and also arrange logistics, shipping our production batches directly from the warehouse in Hong Kong to end-customers around the world. During mass production our team of manufacturing engineers stays on top of the production to ensure quality standards are met and improved upon.

 

Why we sometimes manufacture in Taiwan

Most of our electronic manufacturing takes place in China, but we also manufacture in Taiwan when the orders are smaller or the product needs even stronger IP protection than what we already assure in China

    Titoma HWW Electronic Design

    Titoma’s electronic engineers have been designing and manufacturing electronic products in Asia since 2003. We have the in-house skills and experience to develop embedded solutions, IoT Devices and Industrial Equipment and we are a Preferred Microchip Design Partner:…  

  • Embedded System Firmware Design

    Titoma HWW Firmware Design

    Unlike with a PC or Android device the programming language for every microcontroller is different. At Titoma we design firmware mostly for embedded processors from STM32 and PIC32, and we take care to properly structure and annotate our code so that it can be easily..Read More

  • Electronic Prototyping

    Titoma HWW Prototyping

    During the development we produce several prototypes, often first a partial electronic prototype to compare key components. Then a few iterations of complete working prototypes. For reasons of IP protection and speed we do our prototyping in-house, the housings 3D printed and the electronic circuits often hand-soldered...Read More

  • Injection Mold Making

    Titoma HWW Molds

    Once the shape of the plastic and metal parts is frozen we make the steel molds used to mass produce the housing and other parts. Our Taiwanese mechanical engineers discuss the mold drawings with the Chinese mold makers to assure both the robustness and the..Read More

  • Pilot Production Run

    Totoma HWW Pilot Run

    While earlier prototypes have been carefully assembled by our engineers, the test is now if we can replicate the same quality in mass production, and so for a pilot to be valid it needs to be done on the same assembly line by the same..Read More

  • Testing & Certifications

    Titoma HWW

    The pilot run product are subjected to a battery of test, such as accelerated aging, temperature shocks in our heat chamber, drop tests with and without packaging, water & dust ingression tests to meet for example the IP67 standard. But with all the testing we..Read More

  • Mass Manufacturing in China

    Titoma HWW Mass Manufacturing

    Design For Manufacturing (DFM) it is not something that can be done as an afterthought when a design is 95% ready, for us Design For China Manufacturing drives our design process right from the start, beginning with the electronic product architecture.
