Massachusetts-area innovators partner to transform high-volume manufacturing
Lancaster, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/14/2018 -- Sterling Manufacturing, a vertically-integrated manufacturing solutions provider, is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Cambridge Mobile Telematics (CMT), the world's largest smartphone telematics provider. Together, through automation solutions, the companies will push the bounds of high-volume manufacturing and injection molding.
Sterling Manufacturing routinely partners with companies like CMT early in a product's development cycle, utilizing innovation and flexibility to efficiently scale-up to fully automated, high-volume production. CMT required a world-class, scalable manufacturing partner to meet rapidly growing demand for their flagship DriveWell Tag.
Sterling is collaborating with CMT to optimize the supply chain by developing a state-of-the-art, integrated automation cell. The automation cell integrates an impressive array of technologies in a relatively compact space, with the footprint measuring 50' long x 20' wide. Printed Circuit Board (PCB) assembly and activation, serialization, high speed decorating, assembly, product testing and labeled packaging are all key aspects of the work cell.
This cell is capable of completing a significant number of precision secondary operations at extraordinarily high speeds. The cell's function is reliant upon accurate wireless data transmission and compilation, which processes, verifies and queues individual PCB information instantly, ensuring each printed part is validated in real-time.
"This is another example of Sterling's commitment to adding value wherever possible. Any time there's a demand for value-add services and we're able to provide them, we don't hesitate to integrate our processes and abilities to the benefit of our partners," said Michael Gravelle, Director of Business Development at Sterling Manufacturing. "The value unlocked by our partnership with CMT is bringing a quality product to market faster, more affordably and with much-needed scalability."
Even with a large number of complex functions, the cell can deliver an activated, assembled, tested, decorated and packaged unit every 2 seconds. The automation eliminates numerous steps in the supply chain, greatly improves product changeover times, reduces labor and transportation costs and results in a superior device.
Cambridge Mobile Telematics was recently awarded the "Best Auto Digital Insurance Product" at the prestigious TU-Automotive Awards for its revolutionary DriveWell platform. Sterling has long been a leader in production injection molding and continues to challenge the limits of high-speed automation. In the process, Sterling is redefining high-volume manufacturing.
