Lean production with maximum vertical integration
FEIG ELECTRONIC operates process-optimized production based on lean principles with maximum vertical integration. All our manufacturing activities are based in Weilburg, Germany, in an 8,000 sqm facility, forming a complete value stream from SMT production and individual work systems to device assembly and function testing.
Surface-Mount Technology (SMT)
With SMT, FEIG ELECTRONIC offers a degree of vertical integration that provides maximum flexibility in the fulfillment of customer requirements. The close links between the development department and product manufacturing result in optimum production processes and therefore adherence to delivery deadlines. The two-line facility at FEIG ELECTRONIC is designed to fit 80 million components per year.
Lean work systems
The use of partially autonomous work groups on various work systems organized by product are very important at FEIG ELECTRONIC. The large degree of self-management of work and cooperation processes, combined with planning, decision-making, and control functions as well as simple maintenance tasks, ensure a high degree of variety and self-realization in day-to-day work, forming the basis for the lasting high quality of FEIG products.
Device assembly followed by function test
Device assembly is followed by a comprehensive function test. This is not limited to simply measuring the required parameters. Instead, we test the product with respect to real-life requirements, for example by connecting controllers to different drives or configuring RFID products for specific applications.
