Electrical & Electronic

 

Less & more is the motto in the world of electronics and electrical engineering. Thanks to advancing miniaturization, the next generations of components are again becoming smaller, while their performance is actually increasing. See the chipsets with their more advanced semiconductor structures. Often the new machines that manufacture these components are once again bigger and more complex. And the installations in which the components are used must provide more functionality.

 

In short, the bar is being set higher and higher. The requirements are becoming more stringent on all sorts of aspects, often summarized under the name QLTC: Quality, Logistics, Technology, Cost. All reasons for a machine builder or system integrator to reduce complexity and risk. For example by placing more responsibility with suppliers and if there are many to optimize their number. Then the ball lies with the technical value-add distributor, who can organize clients supply chain more efficiently.

 

It starts with those smaller components. Sometimes special facilities are needed to process them properly. Kitting, the bundling of components per machine or installation, is a logical next step that makes life of customers more pleasant. The same applies to consolidating the supply by bundling material flows from multiple suppliers. For further streamlining of logistics, the technical value-add distributor can offer smart solutions based on just-in-time and lean concepts. And if subsequently the production also has to be laid out lean, he can not only provide related technology but also advice for industrial automation.

 

A point of attention and care, is the ever-increasing regulation. Think of quality, safety, ESD, environment and sustainability (from hazardous substances to CO2 footprint). Cleanliness is also extremely relevant, as more and more systems start to work with vacuum technologies. Components are pre-cleaned and delivered in a clean package. This includes advising and setting up a workspace according to ESD standards, and taking necessary measures. Someone has to keep an eye on it and that is the technical value-add distributor, because it has the best overview, from the fine details to the total picture.
