Manufacturing and Assembly Services
Precision component manufacture and supply chain
Manufacturing and Assembly Services
Clean and high vacuum assemblies are assembled in our laminar flow cleanroom,
certified to ISO 14644-1 Class 6 (Fed Std 209D Class 1,000).
Reliance provides fully tested sub-systems and specialist components, in small to medium volumes, by way of:
- Use and adaptation of standard components
- In-house manufacturing of critical components
- Management of an established supply chain
- Cleaning, assembly and test
A longstanding commitment to metrology ensures component quality, whilst stringent process and build standard control, together with extensive test capabilities and the option to simulate performance under operational conditions, ensure that assemblies conform to specification. The introduction of complex, new projects are carefully managed by our project engineering team.
Components and assemblies can be supplied directly to our customers’ final assembly processes, delivered to stock, or delivered globally to point-of-use.
Reliance provides spares, repairs, refurbishment and upgrade services in support of current production products and those reaching end-of-life.
Manufacturing and Assembly Services can also be integrated with our Design Support Services
New Product Introduction
In order to secure the smooth transition from design to manufacture, new products are managed by a multi-disciplined project team. Our engineers are experienced in handling complex projects with compressed lead times, and have first-hand operational experience gained within the company.
Reliance offers a high precision component manufacturing service, which is both flexible and responsive. To offer best value to our customers, where quality, reliability and lead-times are critical, we combine our in-house capability with the use of tightly controlled external resources. Our ability to measure to sub-micron tolerances in our rod and ceramic production cells positions Reliance at the leading edge in this field.
Assembly and Test
Reliance offers an extensive range of assembly services supported by extensive cleaning facilities, which are suitable for the requirements of high-vacuum systems, mechanical and electro-mechanical systems and integration of optics and lasers. Our highly skilled build and test personnel are capable of assembly and measurement to sub-micron levels, and this degree of precision puts Reliance at the forefront of assembly and test for today’s cutting edge products.
Spares, Repairs and Reburbishment
Reliance provides spares packages, tailored individually, so that our customers are able to support their product line from early growth, into maturity, and through to end-of-life.
Customers are able to order spares efficiently, with fast turnround, fully tested, and packed in line with their own specification. Spares can be delivered directly to point-of-use, reducing costly stock in multiple locations. Products in the field can be returned for repair and refurbishment, with full traceability, delivered directly back into service.
Established Capabilities Secure Effective Delivery
An American company, investigating the outsourcing of an established sub-assembly, used Reliance’s build standard control and supply chain management capabilities to support the development of its manufacturing strategy. Reliance’s broader design capability helped ensure accurate delivery of product to specification and opened the door to further development of new features in the product line.
Consistent, High Quality Delivery
A European company, taking a new design into full production, used Reliance’s production engineering and test development capabilities to secure an effective supply of sub-assemblies delivered directly to its own assembly line. Reliance’s provision of dedicated test facilities was able to prove the essential repeatability of performance to exacting quality standards.
Cost-Effective Legacy Support
A UK-based company, engaged in commercial and operational planning for a mature product, used Reliance’s operational flexibility to maintain the product’s commercial viability as it entered into its end-of-life phase. Reliance’s commitment to long-term customer relationships enabled the company to continue to enjoy fast turn-round, cost-effective supply, in line with its own processes and operational requirements, just as it had expected during the high volume growth phase.
