General Manufacturing Capability

As a ‘design & manufacturing’ company, United Automation prides itself on its ability to produce a wide variety of high-quality electronic products, on both a small scale or in mass production.

With products ranging from compact dimmers to large industrial control panels, the various production departments are set up to accommodate many processes, utilising highly skilled & experienced staff.

As a UK manufacturer, all our products are CE marked and the company has ISO9001 accreditation. But as an exporter of a large proportion of our products, we also have a number of UL listed controllers and are regularly audited by the Underwriters Laboratories.

There is a heavy emphasis on the quality aspects of manufacturing with a constant eye on ‘continual improvement’ and ‘lean-manufacturing’ techniques.

Scheduling Board

Scheduling

All orders which require manufacturing are followed through the process with a specific job-sheet.

This identifies the customer, order references, due-dates and a Bill-of-Materials. The job can then be scheduled by the Production Manager, using a spreadsheet based system viewable on a TV Monitor in the main workshop.All orders which require manufacturing are followed through the process with a specific job-sheet. This identifies the custom

This allows the company to assess workload, component issues and ultimately meet the lead times offered to the customer.

Stock Control

Stock Control

Supply of components is a critical aspect of United Automations manufacturing capability.

Having a very close relationship with our critical suppliers in the UK and internationally, ensures that costs, quality & lead time issues are kept to a minimum. Where global supply issues may affect other parts of industry, we focus on avoiding such situations.

We have implemented and developed various measures to guarantee uninterrupted supply of component parts which, in turn, gives us the ability to offer our customers the service & lead-times they desire.

Manufacturing Departments

The production area has a number of distinct areas, specialising in different manufacturing processes.

PCB ManufacturePCB Manufacture

Mainly for through-hole pcb assembly & some Surface-Mount based circuits.

Wave SolderingWave Soldering

For volume production, most PCBs are populated, cropped & soldered using our cropping & wave-soldering machines.

Mechanical WorkshopMechanical Engineering

Various types of fabrication & engineering equipment are used to machine metal or plastic parts & build mechanical assemblies as part of complete electrical controllers.

wire-cutting.jpg Wire-cutting & stripping

Cables and wires are normally prepared using our wire-cutting and stripping equipment, maintaining quality and improving efficiencies.

Wiring Product Wiring

Ranging from internal wiring of control products to full-scale panel wiring projects

Polyurethane PottingPolyurethane Potting

To improve moisture protection & heat transfer characteristics, many of United Automations products are sealed with polyurethane resin.

pic-programming.jpgPIC Programming

Many of our products are designed around dedicated software and therefore PIC processors need to be programmed in-house, in our ESH area.

3-Phase & 1-Phase Testing3 Phase & 1 Phase Testing

All manufactured products require full-testing and therefore we have various areas & test equipment to carry out both 3-phase & single-phase testing.

Finished Goods Stock

Shipping

In order to support web sales via United Automations ‘on-line’ shop and to satisfy small orders for standard products, we maintain a specific ‘Finished Goods’ stores where we offer items ‘off-the-shelf’ to avoid unnecessary delays for our customers.

Shipping

The vast majority of our manufactured products are shipped via carriers to both UK & export destinations.

The daily shipments, via our regular carriers, range from typical small parcels up to pallets. We also ship our larger equipment via specialist worldwide exporters using dedicated vehicles & lifting gear.
