Custom Equipment Design

Ito Group has a unique set of technologies and advantages that stem from 75 years of experience in manufacturing and electronics assembly. We use these technologies and advantages to build both standard and custom equipment for customers ranging from R&D labs to high volume factories running over 1KK assemblies/day.

Technologies

Design

  • 3D CAD designs with finite element analysis, motion modeling, and throughput simulation

Machining

  • Metals, ceramics, glass, polymers, engineered hybrid materials
  • Surface treatments, including anodization, fluoropolymer, and diamond-like coatings
  • Clamp, vacuum, electrostatic

Thermal controls

  • Passive or constant heating/cooling
