Building quality through design, which enhances our ability to manufacture, is the primary goal at EXELTECH. Through the utilizing of surface mount technology, all design and manufacturing are performed in our facility, located in FORT WORTH, TEXAS. "Pick and place" machines are set up with parts that are standard to all models, eliminating both setup time and errors created when reloading or setting up machines. Only large capacitors and magnetics are placed by hand, in an effort to minimize human error through automation. Hand soldering is eliminated using vapor phase reflow. Point-to-point wiring is eliminated with extensive use of PCB's to perform interconnectivity functions. The use of extruded aluminum for mechanics has reduced the number of nut, bolt, and screw points usage to one-fourth of previous products, while increasing heat dissipation efficiency and lending a functional form factor to the product.More »
