Reference projects: Our services in practice

Delivery problems? Ready to supply again - within the shortest possible time

Reference project „Vehicle Parts“

The story behind this reference story is quite unpleasant to start with: A leading company in the automotive supply industry from our region lost essential manufacturing capacity in a fire. In order to be able to deliver again as quickly as possible, a temporary contract manufacturer was initially sought. The close proximity, the manufacturing flexibi-lity and the high quality standard were the decisive factors for the customer to choose FRIWO.

Outsourcing - from small series to mass production

Reference project „Energy Monitoring“

Electronic Manufacturing Services by FRIWO: For us, this means not only delivering the customer’s product exactly as ordered, but also accompanying him in his own further development. Together with an innovative startup from the field of energy management, we have taken the challenging path from very small series to mass production – and have done much more than just produce according to the given plans.

Questions & Answers

Answers to your questions about our EMS

What services can FRIWO provide - pure assembly or more?

FRIWO accompanies you from the production of the complete devices or systems through testing and packaging to delivery to your customers. As your partner, we will provide you with competent support. You can find an overview of our range of services and technical equipment here: “Table service portfolio“. However, it is also no problem that only partial services such as SMD assembly or similar are taken over by FRIWO.

  • Solder Paste Inspection (SPI)
  • Automatical-Optical-Inspection (AOI)
  • In-Circuit-Test
  • Functional testing
  • Safety testing
  • X-ray inspection
  • self-programmed specific test sequences
What is the smallest package size to be assembled?

The smallest package type to be assembled in the SMD process is 0402 (0201 under certain conditions).

What can FRIWO do that others can't do?

FRIWO can be your system provider. Often, power supplies are also needed for electronic assemblies. We have many years of experience in all areas of electronics manufacturing. In addition to typical electronics manufacturing services, FRIWO has excellently equipped production and test facilities. Where other suppliers have to rely on external service providers, we can manufacture tools and test adapters ourselves at short notice, for example.
