Assembly, Kitting and Ultrasonic Cleaning
SRM has a dedicated in-house assembly and kitting service.
We can pick and pack your products into kits; effectively managing another part of the supply chain.
The kits are packed to customer-specific requirements, barcoded and supplied in bulk. Using advanced materials and state-of-the-art technology, we minimise cost and maximise efficiency.
Advanced production monitoring and process management ensures complete reliability and accuracy of results for total customer reassurance; an absolute essential in the aviation security sector, for example.
- We undertake rework solutions.
- We repack and resend.
- We develop customer-specific cells to undergo tests on products.
- We build rigs and fixtures to carry out precise tests and record data for customer analysis.
- We have an ultrasonic cleaning cell to cater for small product cleaning.
- We can build sub-assemblies enabling you to manage a smaller supply chain.
- We can offer a logistics service for your products as our integrated supply chain software allows us to distribute your items from website sales direct to your customers.
- Real time stock and warehouse monitoring gives us full visibility of stock levels and ensures continuity of supply.
SRM help you reduce your procurement requirement by receiving fully kitted assemblies or component kits rather than purchasing numerous individual parts.
As a key part of the supply chain, we understand that many of our customers now require a ‘one-stop shop’, and sub-assemblies are an important part of their purchasing process.
Our fully equipped, clean assembly area can cater for all of your requirements. This is supported by our fully skilled team of engineers and rubber moulders.
At SRM, we added a kitting and assembly division in 1999 to add an extra dimension; this started as a further service for existing customer products, but developed as new customers demanded specific requirements.
Today we deal with a broad range of product assembly in a diverse range of sectors; for example Turf Cups which we produce for many Premier League football grounds. Over the years, through our R&D program, we have worked with the customers to refine these products; creating interchangeable parts which are easily replaceable and negate the need for the whole sprinkler unit to be removed – saving time and money for our clients.
Typical assemblies we produce include:
- Pulley wheels
- Assembly jigs
- Banding for couplings
- Turf cups
- Manual rubber-to-metal bondings
- Adhesive backings with UV curing
- Bumpers and bump stops for construction vehicles
Ultrasonic cleaning uses cavitation bubbles induced by high-frequency soundwaves to agitate a liquid. The agitation produces high forces on contaminants adhered to the metal, nylon or rubber part. This action also penetrates blind holes, cracks, and recesses.
The intention is to thoroughly remove all traces of contamination on the solid surfaces. Water or solvents can be used, depending on the type of contamination and the object. Contaminants can include dust, dirt, oil, pigments, rust, grease, bacteria, polishing compounds, flux agents, fingerprints etc. Ultrasonic cleaning can be used for a wide range of products of all shapes, sizes and materials, and may not require the part to be disassembled prior to cleaning.
SRM work extensively in the medical sector, where it is crucial that components are free from contamination. The medical industry demands silicone-based products. Silicone is a clean product and contains no impurities; it can also withstand boiling water and sterilisation whilst maintaining its integrity.
SRM have dedicated clean environment areas and hold medical-approved silicone in stock.
We continue to invest and innovate; our ethos is to make high-quality products and to treat our customers courteously and individually.
Innovation is at the heart of our business; we are a forward-thinking firm. Through a combination of innovation and technical know-how, we are able to deliver time and again where others stumble, and we go the extra mile to make it happen.
We love to say ‘yes we can’.
